    Hello,
    I just noticed these protruding red spots on my chicken’s eggs; the same chicken has laid two like this so far both one day and then the next.
    It is fairly stuck to the shell egg I did not try and tear it off because I didn’t want to crack it.

    Any ideas what it could be?

    Just checking as it’s fairly large and thought it was weird to have it two days in a row.

    Cheers.

    I have a hen that lays eggs with what I call barnacles. I think it's just extra shell.

    Most the time it comes of in little specks when you wash it.

    Your eggs are still great to eat.
