Compare Your Eggs to Commercial Eggs

When you buy eggs, what does Class 1 mean? The different classes denote different egg sizes as follows.

Traditional sizes:
Class - Weight(g)

0 - >75
1 - 70-75
2 - 65-70
3 - 60-65
4 - 55-60
5 - 50-55
6 - 45-50
7 - <45

Modern sizes:
Size - Weight (g)

Very large (XL) - >73
Large (L) - 63-73
Medium (M) - 53-63
Small (S) - <53

Why do my chickens sometimes lay tiny eggs?
You may find a really small egg. This is caused by a foreign object taking the place of a yolk in the egg laying process.
