I have Moran hens first year laying . Some are laying what looks like calcium deposit on small end of egg shell. I don't mind eating the eggs but I wouldn't sell them .
Any one out there have input on this situation?

Hi Helen
Every now & then, I see the same thing on chicken eggs. From what I've read it's nothing to be concerned about. Maybe because I feed a little oyster shell year-round, even when they aren't laying?

Thanks for your opinion.
I leave oyster shell out all the time for all birds.
