Just went to collect the eggs from the coop and found little eggs stuck to one of the eggs... the little eggs looked like they were glued to the hen's egg..
Any ideas what it could be? Do I have an infestation of some sort?!?
Thanks heaps

Calcium deposits and not something to be too concerned about,

Yes, it is a bit alarming the first time you see it! Especially if on eggs you are giving away. You'll find a fair bit of info via Google & you can usually dislodge them carefully with a fingernail if you wish to. :-)
