    Ooh pretty and shiny. It looks like it might be large for a pullet egg?

    yep - it looks really shiny on my screen too -- nice color saturation - good job little pullet!!! Did you wet or oil the egg - or is that au natural?

    Oh, yeah... I meant did it look like a small egg....we blew it out and rubbed oil on it, that was the only way I got the color to show when we took a picture. Otherwise it kept looking pale.

    Oh thats a good idea with the oil to make the color show up in pics. I will try that eventually since blue and green eggs are horrile to take pics of and get accutate color results.

    Pictures taken outside (natural light) have a better chance of showing the color of eggs.

    Colored eggs colors show up well if you have white eggs for contrast.
