Thank you, one of my pet peeves as well - as if a medieval peasant could estimate weight down to the nearest ten grams, let alone care... (ok, so it's a bit different if you are buying pricy spices or dyes, but we are talking about undomesticated animals and wild fish a lot of the time!)

However,  thousands of eggs is perfectly appropriate - a lot of the lower beasts use this method to ensure survival of the fittest, as many will become part of the food chain.  Eggs drift into too-cold, too hot, too salt water - are eaten by predators - are destroyed in the rough environment - or simply rot.

Thanks for commenting... I'll get these things fixed as soon as I can.

About the thousands of eggs, many are lost to disease, also.
