    So normally when you bake recipes call for xlarge eggs. My hens just started laying so their eggs are tinier. Does someone know a conversion from the tinier eggs to xlarge egg? Like is it 3 tiny for every 1 large? Or whatever....

    A full size egg is close to 1/4 cup. Not exactly, some a little more, some a little less, but in a recipe, convert to cups +/-, and add eggs until you reach that amount, give or take a little bit. It will work fine.

    But that includes the shell for grading and sale of eggs....not for cooking.

    I goggled some and couldn't find a better answer, so I'd go with Mrs. K's suggestion.

    For serious delicate baking, you might want to search more thoroughly.
