    I usually don't have problems with identifying eggs but this stumped me. In this cage I have some peafowl including some females but this was not a peahen egg. I also have some frilled pigeons, bobwhite quail, and some coturnix quail.

    So what do you all think? By the way I don't want to incubate it if it's a pigeon.

    I was thinking the same but the odd thing was I found it on the ground in a nest where some of the quail lay their eggs.
