Hi I’m wondering if these are real?  And if they are, are they actually from Spain?

Yes these are real eggshells

 

Their color, size and texture are consistent with other eggshells claimed to be from Spain

Possibly, but the colouration is different then your specimens, or do France eggshells have this colouration too?

Colour of a fossil does usually depend of the minerals which are involved during the fossilisation process.

So they are different for each fossil and for each site. Only some of the sites have a unique colour of the fossils caused by the special mix of minerals during fossilisation process.

So the colour of a fossil is - usually -  not a good single ID-maker...

They're the ones I recently purchased :) I could send you the link to his site. 

 

Spanish eggshells are quite unusual.

There are the same levels with eggshells in north Pyrenees (France) and south Pyrenees (Spain)

But in Spain, searching dino material is strictly prohibited (like other fossils)

So, spanish eggshells are unusual on the market

This is correct.  Eggs are found in the Pyrenees mountains which cover parts of Spain and France and all of Andorra.  No way to tell what side of the man made boarder they came from.  Fossils from Spain are illegal but legal in France. I have no idea about Andorra.
