    This fooky looking clear yolk came out of a weird small, skinny brown egg :eek:. I've never seen a clear yolk before, and what is all that stuff hanging out in the yolk? It is really weird. Anyone ever see anything like this before? Needless to say, we didn't eat it.

    Oh, that's no yolk. That's just the albumen that probably formed around one of the meat spots in there thinking that the meat spots were a "yolk". Some birds do have accidents in their reproductive tracts, no worries.
