    How do you size the eggs? Is there a tool or scale you buy? Or do you just go with what the breed standard is (ie, if a breed is supposed to lay medium sized eggs then go with it being a medium size egg)?

    I just have a scale and I weigh my eggs.

    I have red sex links and right now I am getting Large, Extra Large and Jumbos from them. I weigh them and put them in the appropriate carton. I am in Ontario so I go with the Ontario Standard for weight of sizes.
