    My MOL is a cook at a diner and yesterday she cracked open an egg (about her 10 millionth) and there was no yolk. Any idea how this could happen?

    Just a glitch in the bird's system...the old timers call them rooster or wind or fairy eggs.

    MOL = Mother In Law...

    Since she works at a diner, I'm sure the poor hen is a "producer" only.

    Thanks for the answers!!
