    sorry this isn't exactly an emergency or injury, but I noticed little raised spots on some of my eggs. 2 RIR's and 3 BO's are laying and not sure what eggs come from what birds and not even sure it matters. The spots are raised and when I scratch them they almost look like extra calcium deposits or egg shell material. They are very small and I'm sure it's nothing to worry about but was just wondering if anyone has seen these.

    Yes, I have seen these on some of my eggs many times. Not sure what causes them though.
