    I've already posted this in the quail section of this website (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/827578/possible-guinea-eggs-in-quail-batch/10#post_12079190), but it seems I need some more opinions. I recently acquired some hatching eggs, but I have no idea what they are! They came from a local farmers' market, but the egg supplier will not be back for another week or so, as his most of birds have gone into molt, apparently. [​IMG]

    The eggs have similar coloring to quail eggs, but are too big to be quail. They're also shaped like guinea, but are apparently too small to be guinea eggs. I need to figure out what they are before they get too old to incubate! Any ideas?

    Here are some pictures:

    Here are two examples of the eggs next to a big sized chicken egg.

    The eggs were separated into two groups- these bigger, oblong ones...

    And these smaller, nubbier ones. Both types are light in color, with very little speckling on them. I will try and get some more pictures this afternoon, when school is over! [​IMG]
