Should I be concerned about calcium deposits from one of my layers.
I don't know the official response on this one, but I can tell you that one out of my eight hens consistently leaves a calcium deposit on her egg every day, and has done so since Day 1.
She is a fantastic layer - her eggs are averaging around 75 grams, occasionally up to 79 grams, and she lays every day. She appears to be in excellent health: She is vigorous and sociable, has lovely feathers, a healthy appetite and no lice or mites to speak of.
As long as your girl seems healthy in all other ways I would not be concerned.
All 5 of my girls are very healthy and get fruits, veggies, scrambled eggs and organic layer feed along with supplemental calcium, and she lays every day right now for being 1st year layer. The shells just feel gritty and you can see the calcium deposits kinda
I'm sure she is fine
It sounds like you are doing everything right, and she is being a consistent layer so I really wouldn't be concerned.
There are always some shell variations between birds, and this might just be hers.
