    hello! I'm new to BYC. I have had my chickens for a year now and today I got 2 large eggs that are rough and bumpy. All the other eggs are the usual. What causes this?

    you may want to check out "Chicken behaviors and egglaying," in the Raising Backyard chickens forum. Unless they continue to lay rough, bumpy eggs, it's just a glitch, especially in chickens new to laying or old ones about to finish up.

    Welcome to the flock.

    Good morning and welcome to BYC!

    x2 on @sumi 's advice to check out the egg article. I've referred to it myself several times and found it to be helpful.

    Nice to have you join us!

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our "flock".

    The bumps may be calcium deposits, sometimes caused by too much calcium. Alternatively, it can be normal for some hens, so I wouldn't worry too much.[​IMG]

    [​IMG] So glad you joined us.

    Consider posting a pic of the "bumpy eggs" under chicken behavior & egg laying for more input.

    I have one hatchery BR who lays eggs with what looks and feels like calcium deposits, she is healthy, diet is same as every one else…likely just a genetic thing.
