Is the egg on the right still okay for hatching? The two eggs on the left are our regular chicken eggs regular in shape and size
On the right I have an egg off my one and only euskal oilia hen she lays an unusually large egg but it is not a double yoker, I've never tried hatching any eggs off of her yet, do you think they would have the same hatchability as the other eggs? Thanks alot

As long as it's not a double-yolker, it wouldn't hurt to try hatching some.  That's the only real way you'll know.

 

Good luck!

You may run into problems with the air cells not growing at the same rate as the ones in the lighter colored eggs.  If you can visualize air cells, and if that one stays smaller, you might want to put that one into lock down upright in an egg tray.  But, yeah, I'd surely hatch that one.  It's beautiful.
