    That's just some extra calcium. I had one with a bunch of white chunks on it that looked just like the crushed oyster shells I give them.

    It's too much calcium like everyone has said. Whatever you've been feeding them I would suggesting giving them a little less than normal.

    Thank you all very much!! I do give them oyster shells everyday because they started laying rubber eggs. I will cut back :)
