    our guinea eggs are the same size as the barred rocks eggs, they are a lighter shade of brown and have spots on them

    guinea eggs are real pointed on one end. and if you try to crack it open the shell is like a rock. very thick and hard. they are a very pale color and have spots. or freckels.

    It's A Chicken Egg, Guineas Eggs Are More Triangular. They Are Normally Brown With Spots On Them (like The Pores, But Not), But Aren't Always Brown Or Spotted.

    ETA: MY GUINEAS' EGGS ARE NOT MUCH BIGGER THAN A LARGE BANTAM CHICKEN'S EGG.
