My RIRs lay a mini egg every once in a while ... learned it's called a "fart egg".  When I cracked it open it did not have a yolk.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

i got one of those not too long ago.  

 

 

There IS an egg in that compartment!   

 

 

Imagine my surprise when I opened it and it wasn't a fart egg, but a perfectly formed little egg with a beautiful (but tiny) yolk, a nice inner yolk and the outer yolk. The chalazae (and I'm sure I spelled that wrong!) was almost bigger then the whole thing!  None of my chickens are young, new layers so it was a bit of a shocker.  Almost missed it in the nest completely!

I had chickens for two years before one of mine laid one of those tiny little eggs.
