The last 2 days we have gotten hard bumps on our Ameraucana and EE eggs. They are just under a year old and layed all winter. What causes this? Here is a picture.

I was thinking calcium. It is hard and seems to be part of the shell. So, not a problem? We have started new feed.

Yep, it's just a little excess calcium. You don't need to change anything, it's just an occasional thing that happens. Store eggs have it frequently.
