    Got your message about needing a Sultan egg picture.
    My sultan, Cha-Cha, is exceptional. She lays an egg 5 days a week-which I believe is very rare for this breed. Her egg is larger than our bantam Cochins eggs. It is regular white in color.

    Thank-you! I added the 1st picture to the chart.
    I know that black sexlinks are not on your list, but I also saw that you didn't have a pic of their eggs. Would you like one? I'd be happy to help.

    Sure, as long as I don't have a picture for a breed (or a breed listed) feel free to post a picture.
    Liked your color comparisons very interesting approach !smile

    Thank-you!​

    Finally got pics of Catalana eggs. Some sources say the eggs are white to cream, more say cream to tinted. Mine are cream with a hint of pinkish.
    That's a white background, natural light through a window.

    This one taken with a flash:
