Strange honey comb "bubbles" inside of egg. Any ideas of what this is?

I was collecting eggs from my barn flock when I dropped an egg. Picked it up and all of these "bubbles" were in the egg. I have no idea what it is
.... Thought maybe someone has seen this before?

The hen is healthy. The only thing that is "different" about her is that she was inside for severe injuries a few weeks ago. She was completely healed before we put her out and haven't gotten any other eggs like this from her or any bird I have ever owned.

The rest of the egg looked fine. I wish my mom had poked at it more but she just gave it to the dog. He thought it was taste! No one I have talked to has ever seen anything like this either. I'm going to keep an eye out for any more and will definitely poke at that one.
I read on another thread that this can be calcium deposits. They usually end up on the outside of the shell but sometimes are internal.
