    In the U.S. eggs are sized as follows:
    Jumbo= greater than 2.5 ozs.
    Very large = < than 2.25 ozs.
    Large = < than 2.0 ozs.
    Medium = < than 1.75 ozs.
    Small= < than 1.5 ozs
    Pee Wee = < than 1.25 ozs.

    My ISA Browns are now laying large eggs! They have increased in size since labor day. I am so proud!
