Egg sizes

Help! the recipe calls for large eggs, but when I went to the supermarket they are have numbers like 6,7 or 8. A few others were labelled extra large but nothing was called large. How big is a large egg! thank you in advance. :)

Large is a #7. See the info below. I only ever use large ( direct from our chookies in the garden)

oh, thank you both for the info. Im down to one free range hen that still lays sporadically and her friend. I havent had to buy eggs for years and the recipe calls for quite a few and i cant wait on Miss Brown to lay me enough.

Maybe you need to get your wee girls some more friends LOL. We are now down to two girls and they are getting on a little, but still producing. If they slow up, I will just add a couple of younger ones and let Ruby and Speckles retire gracefully.
