    These eggs are coming from 2 year old Golden Comets. I've never raised chickens before and don't know if this is normal or not. I've read up on mites, lice, nutrient deficiencies, diet. What is it? I'm clueless.

    You mean little bumps? That's nothing to worry about. It's just maybe a little bit of calcium deposits on your eggshell. I've gotten lots of eggs like that.....They come and go.....You'll see little variations, which is normal.

    It really hadn't bothered me. But being a new momma to these hens and 6 chicks, I have been reading everything I could. Once i started reading what things to look for in a healthy bird, well I started freaking out. I've had my chicks for 4 weeks and my older hens for 3 weeks. So there has been alot of change for the girls. Change of home, diet, integration of new chicks. So I'm happy to be getting any eggs at all.
