    So my easter egger (little over a year old) has been laying eggs with a good amount of calcium deposits this spring. There has been no change in feed (use general purpose with no calcium) or available oyster shells. No signs of illness/stress. Other layers are doing fine. So maybe a defective shell gland? Any advice/input? Oh no goodies in spring and summer except on rare occasions.

    Her laying system might be a little defective, but I wouldn't worry much about this, especially since she is acting normal. Extra calcium deposits are better than weak shells, soft-shelled eggs, or internal laying. I would just keep an eye on her.
