    my seemingly happy and healthy black stars' eggs have odd surface deposits.

    the one seems to be calcium deposits as descrbed elsewhere on the forum.

    bugger brown raised lumps...

    but what i can't figure is the other,

    it looks like perfectly clustered baking yeast spores.

    any ideas ?

    i'd post a pic but don't know where to do it

    First off, welcome to BYC!

    I would guess that its calcium deposits and nothing to be concerned over. Eggs have many imperfections, wrinkles, freckles, bumps and lumps. According to the hen herself and/or breed.
    Have a wonderful day!
