    OK, this is the second time that this has happened and now I'm concerned. I am getting these little yolk-less eggs from one of my hens. The first time it happened, I thought maybe one of my new pullets started laying. Then, no more little eggs for a month or so. Now another little egg with no yolk, same color....My younger girls were hatched in Feb., so they should start laying in June, maybe? None of them are squatting yet, so I don't think it came from one of them. Anyone else get little yolk-less eggs? [​IMG]

    I've had this happen a couple times also. Don't know what causes it though. [​IMG]
