One of my Lohman browns laid a nice hard thick egg thismorning with two small clustery growths on the shell when i scratched at it it crumbled away and a tiny hole leaked out some white. ive never seen it before? the egg was fertile.

Extra calcium deposits on the outside of the egg shell occasionally happen. Some hens even lay such eggs fairly regularly.

yes i am aware of that this is different and is a direct path inside the egg as if that small spot is misformed.its not a simple calcium deposit on the outside of the shell.
