Can anybody tell me what this little white dots are on the outside of the egg shell? This is the 2-nd time I see this. The first time there where a lot fewer than what I show in this pictures. They can be rubbed off, and the egg looks perfectly normal underneath.

Looks like calcium deposits, but I've never seen that many in one place. What are you feeding your girls? Calcium deposits come from too much calcium, found in oyster shells. Hopefully someone else with more experience will chime in.

That's what puzzles me too. Why are they all bunched up in one spot? I feed them Poulin Grain Gamebird-starter/grower and they have available oyster shells at all times.

Sounds like your offering them too much calcium - gamebird feed has a lot more calcium/protein then Layena layer feed.
