Calcium deposits?

Hi all. I have 13 hens. 6 are currently laying, the others are just about ready. One of my hens (black star chicken) is all of a sudden laying these eggs (pic attached) with calcium deposits on the shells. I feed 16-18% protein organic layer feed from scratch and peck feeds with Kalmbach Henhouse reserve mixed in. They free range during the day. I clean the coop out every day. Any ideas? Suggestions?

From what I've heard, calcium deposits are basically just a glitch in the production line. I have a three-year-old hen who's laid eggs like that her whole life! There's nothing wrong with the chicken or the egg. How exciting you're getting so many eggs!
Oh wow! Thank you! I thought it was something with my feed. She just started doing it about 2 weeks ago after laying glitch free eggs!
