Oh wow. Never heard of that except with "fart" eggs, which are usually really small. I never had a fart egg myself, but read about it on here from others.
On a side note give eggs to friends and fam sometimes when i have surplus & one of my friends always boils the eggs and tosses the yolk, or he makes egg white omlettes etc. but he never eats the yolk. I think its the best part, creamy yellow yolk. I wish i knew the trick, since I always feel a pang when i hand him a dozen  knowing their yolkless fate...

I've had plenty of wind or fart eggs but never a full sized egg without a yolk.  Consider all those that are on these egg white omelet kicks if you could develop a chicken that did this if would be worth a fortune except you'd have to clone them.

I live on 7.5 acres in the western Catskill foothills where I have a 3200 sq.ft veggie garden, 100-plant blueberry patch as well as strawberry and raspberry patches, 4 cats and over 4 dozen chickens: Black Stars, RIR's,  EE's, Brown leghorns, BR's, Buff Orpingtons, Black Australops (including one very happy EE rooster) plus 16 guinea fowl. I've been keeping chickens since I was in high school...
