    Hi guys,

    I've been collecting my guinea eggs for the last several days (the hens found a discreet spot semi-under a brush pile in the woods for a nest). Today, I got this giant egg in with them! Is this just a giant guinea hen egg? Or do you think it could possibly be a turkey? I have 1 hen turkey in my flock whom I have yet to spot nesting anywhere. I would be surprised if she had followed the guineas to their nesting spot and squatted an egg there lol... It seems too big and too pointed to be one of my chickens' eggs. [​IMG]

    The three on the left are guinea eggs. The larger egg on the right is a chicken egg. It is not the right size, shape or color to be a turkey egg.

    Here's this picture too!
    On the left are two guinea eggs I've collected. In the middle are the two variations of chicken eggs I collect daily. On the right is the questionable egg:[​IMG]
