Would anyone know the conversion for this?
About 3.5 yolks based on a Google search of "egg yolk weight."

I would put a cup on the scale and put in as many egg yolks as it takes to weigh 2.25 ounces. Then you can give the info from experience.

Cooking/baking recipes are predicated on Large eggs. The average Large egg yolk weighs .66 ounces. Doing the math, 2.25 divided by .66 yields 3.41 yolks. Round up and call it 4.

I find that my egg yolks weigh .75 ounces each, so 3 would be perfect. My eggs are from pastured hens..I wonder if they are heavier than grocery store yolks? Food for thought.
My experience is that most young hens of breeds popular with small batch poultry operations are more likely to produce extra large or jumbo eggs.
They are large (as in not extra large) eggs, but I was at a friend's house over the weekend and made omelets for breakfast. I noticed my eggs have yolks that are plumper and a darker orange. My farmer also sells produce in shares and I see his hens eating lots of beets and carrots along with the bugs they find while happily pecking around.
