    It's fine. It was just a small malfunction in egg production. They're called wind eggs or fart eggs and hens lay them from time to time. It's nothing to be worried about.

    You can make a yokeless omlette out of it.

    Happens once in a while - I would not be too concerned. Once in a while you might get a jelly egg too - that is an egg with just the flexible lining and very weak if any shell. They feel weird but again just something that happens once in a while.
