'Round here, that joke is about possums. Or armadillos--they are making themselves home in Missouri.

Yes, you are correct about this. (I raise a backyard flock.)

How funny! Never heard of such a thing. Double yolks (Siamese twins, anyone), bloody yolks, but can't remember even my parents (who grew up as children raising chickens) telling me about yolk-less eggs! All I can say is that cock needs a sperm count!

I have chickens, too, and I have only seen a yolkless egg when the girls are young, and those eggs are usually very tiny--maybe an inch long.

Eggs that haven't been candled or sorted (straight out of the bird) have all kinds of odd shapes, wrinkles in the shell, bits of shell stuck on the outside of the egg, no shell, round eggs or very long pointy eggs. The size varies a lot, too--sometimes an egg will be twice as big as normal, and have 2 yolks.

The yolk is formed first, then 2 layers of white, then the shell. Something happened in this case to cause the whites to form without the yolk--the folks in the egg production facility where I used to work said that a bad thunderstorm would cause a lot of double yolks.

That is so interesting. I have never seen a yolkless egg. I have seen the double yolk. I even got a fertilized egg one time. I did not enjoy that at all.

Could you please explain what you mean? How do you identify a fertilized egg? In any case, some people think they are somehow more healthful for us to eat than unfertilized ones.
