    Is there a sure fire way to tell turkey eggs from chicken eggs? I have two turkey hens that live in the chicken coop. I also have white and cream layer pullets.
    I know turkey eggs are pointy and speckled. Can I tell one from a pointy chicken egg that might be a little dirty?

    Hi there,
    From what I have seen turkey eggs are pointy and speckeld.
    I am not sure if you could tell a turkey egg from chicken egg
    If they are dirty so I guess
    The only way to find out is to wash them?
    Goodluck
    Fionn.

    I have turkeys and chickens. Once you have seen turkey eggs there is no problem telling them from chicken eggs dirty or not. Normal turkey eggs are much bigger than chicken eggs along with the shape and color.
