ISO help determining egg weight

When a recipe calls for the eggs by weight, do I weigh it with or without the shells?

The wikipedia has a nifty chart - saves weighing... Chicken egg sizes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I think those weights are with the shell. I'd assume the volumes are without.

You are probably right. The USDA has extensive guidelines for grading us eggs... lots of reading there including this: http://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/getf...STELDEV3004376

I picked this out:

Average Weight of One Large Egg
In Shell = 57 grams
Without Shell = 50 grams
White Only = 30 grams
Yolk Only = 18 grams
