An extra-large egg weighs 2 ounces. There are 16 ounces in a pound, so there would be eight extra-large eggs in a pound. A small egg, however, weighs only 1.3 ounces, so it would take 12.3 small eggs to make a pound. Likewise, a medium egg weighs 1.6 ounces, so there would be 10 eggs in every pound of medium-sized eggs.
