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!

From what I've seen... eggs can have all kinds of irregularities and still be completely , well, regular
