    Some Say 5, Some Say 6... Really Depends On The Size Of The Eggs Being Used As Compared To The Size Egg Being Desired...

    My Coop
    based on regular large egg. and all approximates.
    1 cup = 5 whole eggs
    1/2 cup = 3 whole eggs
    1/4 cup = 1 whole egg
    I use the measuring cup and crack as many as needed.

    This is all based on the eggs size, I use my hen eggs (large to extra large) so one day i cracked one and found it to be about 1/4 cup. so I use that for how many quail eggs to use.

    If you want to be exact weight it rather then measure it.
