The eggs are rhea from a farm in CA. They come cleaned out with one hole in the large end.

The rhea egg is 5 1/4" long, 14" X 11 3/4".
The goose egg shown here is a extra large, not the largest which is Jumbo.
It is 5" long & 12 1/2" X 9 1/4"

The eggs look longer because their not perfectly side by side with the ruler.
Like Hogzilla in the photo. LOL

Ostrich and rhea eggs are glossy as are a few others. These rhea eggs are what is called 2nd's. Meaning the surface is discolored or flawed in some way. I have a ostrich egg that is pretty much perfect and very large. I've had it for years and just can't bring myself to cut it. I estamate that it's worth close to $40-$50 as is. You can get 2nd's for as low as $10-$15 that have imperfections that make it one you would want to carve or engrave. Most run around $20 - $25. I'll know more after Saturday. The Dallas Egg Show is this weekend. There will be people from Japan and the UK. Maybe one or two from Central and South America.

Oh my, I sure would like to see some of your work. I know I would ruin every egg.
