    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.
