Peacocks and Peahens

What does a peacock egg look like?

A mature peahen (2 years old or more) lays a light beige or tan egg, often speckled with darker brown, that is 2 times the size of a store-bought Large Grade AA chicken egg. The peafowl eggshell is thicker, and the yolk is more orange and larger in proportion to the white than a chicken's egg.

Immature peahens (one year old) sometimes lay eggs that are chicken-sized.
