The pigeon egg is a perfect oval, and has a shiny white finish that almost looks as if it was already decorated!  But that is the natural coating, very small pores, shiny, uniform white... it's a lovely oval shaped egg. Smaller than bantam chicken, smaller than chukar, larger than quail. 

1.5 inches tall, and there is no fat end or pointy end, it is truly oval. If you take a string around the middle, it stretches out 4 inches on the ruler. 4.5 inches if the string goes end to end over the single hole on the longest dimension.

Single small hole on one end. My stock of pigeon eggs is from backyard rooftop pigeon fancier who raises the for fun.
