    Greetings,

    Does anyone know how much a dozen of eggs should weigh? I have what appears to be jumbo (visually) to very tiny eggs. We mainly eat the smaller ones & will sell the larger ones.

    I want to know if I mix & match the sizes, what should the weight be for a dz Extra Large & then Large eggs.

    Thanks in advance!

    I know an easy way that you could find out.

    Go to the grocery store and buy a dozen eggs of each size and weigh them.

    Have a lot of omelets.
