      Looks like calcium on the outside of the egg. The inside was normal.

      1. White banded egg

      [​IMG]

      These eggs are the result of two eggs entering and making contact with each other in the shell gland pouch. When this happens, normal calcification (egg shell formation) is interrupted and the first egg that entered the pouch will get an extra layer of calcium, seen as the white band marking. Causes for this are:

      - Stress in the flock;

      - Changes in lighting, for example adding artificial light in the coop to encourage laying over winter;

      - Diseases such as infectious bronchitis.
