Re: [Just-Food-City-Chicken-Meetup-NYC] Pest that lays tiny beige eggs on chicken eggs?

pretty sure its excess calcium. It happens sometimes when the shell is forming. I have seen what your pic shows...never a bug laying eggs. It can be part of the egg or it washes right off.

I've been noticing these tiny beige colored eggs on some of my chicken eggs every now and then.  Photo link below - can anyone identify?
What pest is this and is it dangerous to eat or to my chickens' health?
Thanks so much for any input. 

Not sure if this link to the photo is going to work - can someone let me know?
