    They're still working out the kinks :) The tiny eggs with no yolks are called wind eggs and they're not uncommon when pullets are just coming into lay. With time their bodies should sort it out and their eggs will get bigger.

    You can still eat them, it would just be as if you had separated the yolk out of a regular egg :)
