    I've never seen golden or silver pheasant eggs, just ring neck pheasant eggs and they are pretty small and more rounded compared to Guinea eggs (plus ring neck pheasant eggs are assorted shades of olive green in color, GUinea eggs are usually assorted beige colors and sometimes speckled). Guinea eggs usually have a really distinct shape to them too, they are kind of a short egg with a fat/wide round end and a narrow pointy end. There's some examples on Guinea eggs in this recent thread about double yolk eggs, maybe this will help you ID which eggs are Guinea eggs.
