    Is it just the lighting or is the egg yellow?

    Looks like calcium deposits. Nothing to be concerned about.

    It's the lighting. The egg is brown.

    Oh, thanks for posting this. One of mine lays eggs that have some bumps on the shell, and I was wondering too. Doesn't that hurt them comming out? [​IMG] Is there a reason that happens? Like having too much calcium, or some kind of vitamin deficiancy?
