    Sometimes the eggs have little bumps on them. What causes this?

    They are just calcium deposits on the eggs. I get them sometimes too. Do you have a picture to confirm? They are attached to the egg shell and if you remove them it makes a whole or dent in the egg? If so, then it is for sure calcium deposits.

    That's what they are. They look just like the picture from that website. Thank you for the info. [​IMG]
