Can anybody out there let me know what this growth is, growing outside the shell?

    [​IMG] A mod will probably move this to the correct thread. It looks like it's just excess calcium from when the hen formed the egg. Completely natural. [​IMG]

    That's sure what it looks like to me, too, excess calcium. I've seen quite a few eggs like that.
