    Hope you guys can help. Saw these on the eggs today and really don't know what it is. Is it calcium deposits? I just want to make sure it is not a problem? eggs for a bug?
    The small things are very hard, but can be removed with a wipe of the finger.
    On the second photo the small white ones are the ones i am referring to. thanks for the help.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Mine are like that once in awhile. Not sure if it is extra calcium (mine are free oyster shell fed) or debris in the oviduct, but for my flock, it's a normal finding once in awhile.

    Calcium deposits. Perfectly normal.
