Protruding small bumps on eggs?

    I have been getting eggs like these for a while now, but this one seems pretty bad... Is this some sort of health problem for chickens or can I just leave the chickens as be for now?
    BTW, the small white bumps come off onto my fingers if I touch them for a bit, but the larger brown ones do not.

    I have had several eggs recently with a few of the brown bumps on them but I'm not sure what they are.

    I will be subscribing to the thread too.

    I hope somebody who knows will join in and help us.
