    size wise it is small bantam like old dutch? serama? My old dutch eggs are lighter colored than that, almost white, so probably not old dutch

    at the zoo usually
    Looks like a button quail egg. You'll need a proper incubator to hatch it. There are people on BYC that have made them. I'm sure someone will post with directions on that. Enjoy!
