    Is a duck egg the size of a chicken egg (will they fit in a chicken egg carton)?
    Will a goose egg fit in a coffee cup holder (the ones from the coffee shop)?
    Is an emu egg the size of a goose egg?
    How big is a guinea fowl egg? Will they fit in a chicken egg carton?

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    A duck egg is the size of a double yolker. It will fit in an extra large egg carton but not a regular egg carton.​
