    My RIR do a great job of laying 4-5 eggs everyday from 5 hens. I have noticed some strange eggs lately, some of the eggs will have what looks like a few crusty deposites (same color of egg) on the shell of the egg, it wipes off easy but have never seen it before. I gotten a few eggs that look that they have moles on them, it will be a red-brown color and look like a small mole on the shell. I hope the eggs are fine, my family eats them almost everyday.

    they are fine its just an exess of calcium in the chickens body, but if the egg itself is mishapen then it might be worms.
