    I found an egg in the pen where we keep a mallard pair and 3 gueani's. It looks like a regular chicken egg except it was white with just barely a green tint to it. Is it a gueani or a duck egg.

    I have some chicken eggs in the bator so I threw it in there.

    Duck. Guinea eggs will be tan and the pores on the shell are larger and the eggs feel rough. Duck eggs will be white, with possible hues, and silky smooth.

    Guinea eggs will have one ended that is pointed while duck eggs will be rounded on both ends. And a guinea egg is smaller than a duck's egg.

    it is probably a duck egg. I guess we will know in 28 days anyway, assuming its fertile.
