it has been in the 90s for over a week in upstate ny, and 1 of my 2 sex links is laying an egg that has alot of hard pimples on the shell, I'm hoping its just heat stress, any suggestions?

It could be stress, usually they are from too much calcium or older birds. I used to see them more when I fed layer ration, now on an all flock with oyster shells free choice I haven't seen any this season. I don't believe there's anything to worry about and it can come and go.

I have a bird that consistently lays pimply eggs....calcium deposits.
Just a funky shell gland, otherwise egg is fine.
