On the sign:
בתחילה שכנה הביצייה במחסן ליד הצרכנייה.
אח"כ עברה למבנה סמוך למחסן.
בשנים הראשונות בעלי המשקים צריכים היו לרחוץ ולשקול את הביצים. כל משק סימן את מספר המשק על כל ביצה והביצים נשלחו לתנובה.
הביצייה נסגרה כאשר התמעטו הלולים ושיווק הביצים נהפך פרטני.

Translation of the text on the sign:

The eggs depot
Initially, the egg depot was housed in a warehouse next to the grocery store.
It then moved to a building near the warehouse.
In the early years farm owners had to wash and weigh the eggs. Each farm marked the farm number on each egg and the eggs were sent to Tnuva.
The egg depot closed as the chicken coops dwindled and egg marketing became individual.
