Eggs that have no yolk

Missing Something?

An egg laid without a yolk is what they call a "wind egg" or a "Cock's egg" and these are often the first eggs laid by a pullet as it starts egg production but can also be laid by an older hen if it has had a shock of some kind. It's basically a blip in the egg laying system where a piece of reproductive tissue gets treated like a yolk and wrapped in albumen and a shell.


If it continues, it might be worth getting her checked out by a vet if you have one who understands poultry but if it's just a one-off occurrence, it's not anything to worry about and normal service should resume soon. Hens are very strange creatures sometimes, aren't they!
