    I have gotten two of these one was on the ground so figured it was my white broad breasted turkey but then this morning found second one in a nest box. The nest box she could get to(turkey)and it has bigger opening then the others the next box is on the floor of the coop. But still can't think she would fit in it. So is this chicken egg or turkey egg. I will know for sure once we butcher the turkey i just can't wait lol. I have 2 white rocks, 9 orph, 8 rir think it could be one of them?

    The two with speckles are turkey eggs.
