    I have a bantam hen who has been laying a few eggs, about the size of a robin egg. There has never been one with any yolk inside, just what little bit of white that can be in such a small egg.
    Will there eventually be eggs with yolk in them?

    Thanks.

    Sounds like you have a low cholesterol egg producing bantam!

    She should eventually stop laying the wind eggs and give you some larger eggs with yolks.

    She should start giving you yolks soon sometimes when they startlaying it takes a while to work out the kinks.
