    This morning when I went out to gather eggs, there was one that was really tiny with a very thin shell.

    Then when I opened it... it had no yolk at all, just a small dark spot.

    Yes, that happens from time to time. I once got a tiny egg in the shape of a gourd!

    They call them...uh..."f#rt eggs", or perhaps more politely, "wind eggs." There usually is no yolk. It's just a minor hiccup in the egg production line.
