Re: silkie eggs or guinea eggs?????

Silkie eggs are a light creamish color and mine tended to be sort of roundish in shape.  Guinea Fowl eggs are more of a brown color, with a round bottom and pointy end.  Guinea Fowl eggs also have a very hard shell when you go to crack them.

Wow.  Talk about a perfect response!  What a great photo.

I was going to say guinea fowl eggs are more triangular and have a duller almost dusty surface, but the picture really says it all!
