    Hi! Is the darker egg just a real tiny chicken egg (I did get some new hens over the weekend) or is it a guinea hen egg you think?
    I have 9 guineas.
    Thanks!

    Sometimes lighting on a camera can mess color up. The smaller egg looks about the right size but not the right color for a guinea egg. The new hens you got, what are their ages and breeds? It could be a pullet egg.

    Honestly, I don't know much about them lol. My mother bought 3 of them at an auction. They're black and pretty good sized if that helps? I don't really know much about chicken breeds!

    It is a chicken egg. It is not the right shape to be a guinea egg. Here is a link to pictures of guinea eggs.
