Ha! I was clueless.
I guess it's six, Dixie.
Here they are:

"USDA recognizes 6 sizes: Jumbo eggs are at least 30 ounces to the dozen. Extra large eggs are at least 27 ounces to the dozen. Large eggs are at least 24 ounces to the dozen. Medium eggs are at least 21 ounces to the dozen. Small eggs are at least 18 ounces to the dozen. Peewee eggs are at least 15 ounces to the dozen."

Thanks for the info Kraven, you got it!
When I lived on a small farm, I was friends with our neighbor kids, about half a mile away, there Dad owned a chicken farm with over 30,000 chickens. I would go up there and lend a hand, so they could come out and play ball with me. haha.

Not me.... I'm a city slicker.
