    I was collecting eggs today and I got the weirdest eggs imaginable. A white one, one the size of a big pea, and a chicken egg shaped like a duck egg. I have some weird eggs around here...

    I can't help you with the chicken egg thing [​IMG]

    If that's a white coturnix egg (Meaning the egg is white, not necessarily from a white coturnix) , it just slipped past the paint department. I get some from time to time. If fertile, it is not only hatch able, but you have the added plus of being able to see what is going on in there when you candle it. The small egg is most likely a starter egg from a young hen, and can be discarded. If you have enough hens of any species, you will see almost anything pop out.
