post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I just looked this up because I wanted to know what size of egg my Welsummer pullet was laying. Just thought I'd share.

Size    Weight of a dozen eggs
Jumbo   30 ounces
Extra Large   27 ounces
Large   24 ounces
Medium   21 ounces
Small   18 ounces
Peewee   15 ounces

DH bought a scale at Office Depot so I could tell if I had medium or large eggs.  Was really surprised this week when I had one that was 2.4 oz which is extra-large.
