    Ok the birds in question here are female lavender guinea, americana, and faverall. The hens are showing all signs of it being egg laying time. The guinea is at that age but its winter...the small egg has been 3 days, once on the floor and now 2 days in the nesting box
    both of these eggs are the third of whatever 2 birds.
    any ideas?? Mostly about the tiny one.
    thanks

    I'm surprised that this didn't get a response earlier. It's relatively easy to answer, I thought. The egg on the left is definitely a guinea egg. You can tell because of it's triangular shape. I believe the chicken egg the right is from a favorelle hen because they lay light brown/creamy colored eggs while ameraucana hens lay a bluish colored egg.

    Thank you for the reply. This is my first year with chickens/guinea/rabbits etc... so im still learning as I go. That is what we thought as well, but wanted veteran chickeneers to advise also.
    thanks!
