The following information is from the American Egg Board.
fresh eggs
Although any size egg may be used for frying, scrambling, cooking in the shell, and poaching, most recipes for baked dishes, such as custards and cakes, are based on the use of large eggs.
The correct egg size can be important in recipes with exacting measurement requirements, such as cakes. At other times it doesn't matter.

Egg Conversions:


These approximations are based on a large (2-oz) egg.

Other egg sizes may be more or less than the amounts listed below.
Whole Eggs
3 whole eggs = 1/2 cup
1 whole egg = 3 tablespoons
1/2 whole egg = 4 teaspoons
Yolks
6 to 7 egg yolks = 1/2 cup
1 egg yolk =
1 tablespoon
Whites
4 to 6 egg whites = 1/2 cup
1 egg white = 2 tablespoons
Dried or Powdered Eggs
1 egg = 2 tablespoons egg powder + 2 tablespoons warm water

To substitute another size egg in your baking, check the following charts.

Thank you Gale ....... I have always wondered about that.  And a lovely woman at church gives me cartons of eggs from her chickens and the difference in the size of each is astonishing.
