This is a very pretty egg, beige with dark tan speckles. The shell is thin, but not as brittle as a chicken egg. It is smaller than a chicken egg, measuring @1.25 inches tall, 4.5 inches around tallest circumference, 4 inches around fattest circumference, 3/16ths inch hole. Chukar Partridge are originally from India, and were brought to the USA as game birds. There are wild populations in the US now... but I raise them domestically. Not that they are domestic, one could lose a hand collecting the eggs actually.
