No yolk!

Yesterday I cracked an egg to add to a cake that I was making and there was no yolk in the egg, only the white. It was the first time in too many years that I opened an egg and there was no yolk. Does anyone know how and why?

I can't imagine how that could happen but the egg obviously missed the inspectors. Many times I have gotten double yolk eggs. Once I even got a whole dozen of double yolkers, but I have never even heard of an egg without a yolk.

Curiosity got the best of me and I hit google. Check out this interesting page of egg oddities. BTW - according to the page, no yolkers are most commonly produced by immature hens as a first effort - goes to show practice pays of in most ventures ;)

The chicken was using birth control.

Bolas, friend, here I learned a lesson: from now on I'll always keep a camera ready to shot in the kitchen, maybe I get some good viral pic!

I imagine there's a huge market for yolk-less eggs.

Better than Egg Beaters and better than throwing away the yolk.

That, Sir Loin, was a milk-snort-through-the-nose.
