卵 are actually small eggs, such as insect eggs, or ovum. There is another character for bigger eggs: 蛋, I may discuss in another post. Normally, if the egg is as big as broad bean, or bigger, it is called 蛋, otherwise it is called 卵. But sometimes, 卵 means all eggs, including big ones, specially in the proverbs. Because ancient Chinese didn't distinguish big eggs from small eggs, 蛋 appeared in standard script, which was very late, at least 1500 years later than shell bone script.
