    is the little egg in the middle a bantam egg?

    the reason I'm asking is because I also keep guineas and I'm wondering whose egg it is.

    thank you!

    Given the size, I would say bantam. But I don't know enough about guineas to give an accurate answer as to weather or not it could be from one.
    When we got guinea eggs, they were inbetween the size of a bantie egg and a standard. But if your guineas are young and just began to lay, then it could very well be from them-one way to tell for sure [​IMG] Try to crack it. Those guinea eggs are the darn toughest things to open up, you can practically bounce 'em off concrete.

    no, I don't think that is a guinea egg. They are a different shape, being heaps more pointy at one end.

    Do you have any pulllets that are just starting to lay? They start off small like that, no larger than a bantam egg.
