    How are egg sizes worked out ?

    I bought some eggs today and wondered how do they work out what size they are?
    My boys spotted some Jumbo eggs and asked how do they get that grade?
    I tried googling Jumbo eggs but couldn't find a definitive answer.

    Sorry I'm no eggspert.

    Anything laid by a Jumbo chicken is labelled a Jumbo egg, large chickens = large eggs, small chickens= small eggs. many people fall into the trap that the Jumbo refers to the size of the egg when it is indeed the size of the chicken that laid it.

    The big ones are put into egg boxes and labelled big and the small ones... Do some people really have to ask these stupid kind of questions that no-one actually cares about?
    And you have children you say... well luck to them.
