What does a guinea's egg look like?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have 2 guinea fowl and believe one of them may be a female.  Yesterday, when gathering the eggs from my other hens I noticed that one of the eggs was very light - almost white with specks in it and wondered if it belonged to the guinea.  Someone please help.   Thanks!

Guinea eggs are smaller than a hens egg and rather pointy on the small end.

You smell that? Do you smell that? Broody poop, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that.

I love the smell of broody poop in the morning.

It smells like... progeny

Thank you for your response.   The whitish eggs I have been getting along with the brown eggs are the same size as the other hens but they are a bit pointy also but have some brown specks in them.  Whoever they come from ~ they are delicious as I had 3 this morning for breakfast! tongue
