    I think they are yolkless aren't they? Just think, all the people who do not like egg yolks and only want the whites... You could make a killing off of fresh laid yolkless eggs if only you could get them all the time! Oh wait... not chickie chickies then..

    No it had a yolk. Looked like a normal egg. Shell was hard to break and membrane was thick. I should have taken a pic of it after i opened it. My wife found it and acme in the house and said " i did not know we were raising quail" LOL

    It is a wind egg or aka fart egg. Most don't have yolks but once in awhile they can.

    Quote:Agreed. Most that I have gotten don't have a yolk, but every once in awhile they do. I have hens just coming out of a molt, when fart eggs are likely to happen. Got a fart egg day before yesterday and another one today. First one had a yolk, today's didn't.

    We get fart eggs once in a blue moon, nothing to worry about at all! [​IMG]
    The fat, small-egg-layer's fart eggs were about the size of a robin's. It was both adorable and quite pitiful at the same time, she is an ENORMOUS chicken. [​IMG]
