my chickens are laying eggs that have odd little particles in them, fairly regularly. the particles are small and beige/brown. i have no idea what they are. does anyone know why they are laying this way and what that stuff is? it kind of grosses me out.
Odd particles in eggs

How long have they been laying? New layers take awhile to get things right. Maybe it is due to this?
I've found that as the hens get older, the egg spots increase. These don't affect the flavor or usefullness of the egg...but can be offensive to your customers if you are selling eggs. You can break your eggs into a bowl and pick out the spots before adding them to recipies...many cooks and chefs do this as a matter of routine anyway. My eggs finally got spotty enough that I quit selling eggs from the old hens...have 25 pullets due to start laying in January...my customers are waiting...
