    Egg sizes seem to be only a few calories difference as they get bigger. I pretty much always log for extra large eggs. I rarely buy jumbo but an occasional huge egg gets mixed in and sometimes smaller ones too. I also add more calories when I get double yolk eggs.

    If I get a double yolker, I do a happy dance! 😎

    I eat a lot of eggs and never have gotten one, is it like finding 4 leaf clover?

    Usually when I get a double yolk, most or all that carton of eggs will be double yolks. Doesn't happen often and we eat tons of eggs here.

    I've never weighed an egg. That's way too OCD 4me.

    When you have your own hens you can end up with quite a range.

    True that! I have bantam hens, standard layers and ducks....blue shells, brown shells, green shells....no consistency, but delicious!!

    Oh, well you made me think of how you peel a hard boiled egg. Thought I was missing out on something. ☺

    Yeah, I wasn't quite there when I wrote above. Am on some nasty medication at the moment. Weaning them off from tomorrow. Normal life will resume in hopefully a week :D

    I dont think Ive ever had one in shop bought eggs either.

    When i used to have my own chooks, we got a double yolker relatively often - probably about once a month or so.

    Does anyone know the approximate weight range for differently sized eggs? We have our own hens and would be good to know roughly what size their eggs are.
