    I have a hen who is laying tiny eggs. I've gotten 2 in the last 2 weeks. The first one was smaller than a robin egg and the one I have now is smaller than the eggs I get from my bantam hens. I'll try to take a picture and upload it. The first one didn't have a yolk or anything just the clear membrane in it. I'll open this egg and see what is in it. I might have to upload to my profile.

    It's normal for them to lay them occasionally, as you've seen they often don't contain a yolk, a few common terms are fairy eggs and fart eggs. I don't like the second term.
