Half a dozen or so, I would guess. Maybe a bit more when dd was living here and we baked more and made pancakes more.

Less than a dozen. Dh has an egg for breakfast 3-4 mornings a week. I have one fro breakfast 1x a week maybe. I do use egg beaters though, and have egg white omelettes/burritos several days a week.

The kids rarely eat eggs.

Less than a dozen, but more than 8 (the grocery also sells packages of 8), so one week I get a dozen and the next I get 8.

We eat a ton of eggs. We go through about 5 dozen a week, on average (you know, some weeks more, some weeks less, but it's pretty consistent).

The kids eat eggs for breakfast, two or three days a week, dh eats them for breakfast about three days a week, and I have have them two or three days. Plus, about every other week or so, we have eggs (or quich) for dinner. We boil about a dozen a week for snacks or lunches.

I prefer fresh eggs, but dh doesn't like them, and b/c we eat so many, I buy the *cheap* ones, at Costco.

Well, have breakfast for dinner usually one day a month, so we may do a dozen eggs that night, otherwise 6 or less a week.

We buy organic free range eggs, because we live in a rural area that a few of our neighbors with chickens sell. For the number of eggs we buy a month, it probably costs less than $5 a month more than from our grocery store.

At least a dozen a week.

I just remembered I used to live on an egg farm . . . for about 6 months.
