Egg sizes are not as simple as recipes may indicate. The below gives some reference points of egg weights in parts of the world. Of note, in the United States, the USDA guidelines give minimum weights. Therefore, average weights are often presented, and this is what I have provided in the table below. But, and this is a big but, it seems that now most US large eggs are around 70g. This can make a big difference. In the UK, a range is given. The average sizes for Canada and the USA are less than a gram different for each size, so they are combined together below.

Market eggs can vary greatly. Therefore, you might want to weigh some to get a feel for the size. BTW, these are weights in the shell.
