Since we have chickens and peafowl living in the same pen, I am really worried about collecting the peahen eggs thinking they're chicken eggs. Does anyone have a comparison picture of a peafowl egg and a chickens? I really don't want to have any peahens in the refrigerator at the moment.

Thank you Very Happy

Hi Riley,
You will for sure know the difference between peafowl eggs and chicken eggs. They are larger, and spotted with lightish brown spots. If you have a peafowl egg i think you will know the difference.
I hope this helps you,
gratia

My chickens lay eggs the size of the large eggs in the grocery store. Peafowl eggs are twice the size! You can't miss them.
