When A Chicken Sneezes . . .


Is this a joke?


Nope.  It's no yoke!

Egg white whole egg! I have never seen one. Can you market those?

wyomingheart said...

I'll take a dozen, please!

Goatldi said...

Too funny!

Years back when egg yolks were the culprit you could of made a fortune .

Leigh said...

Curious! I don't think I've ever had a yolkless egg.

Kristina said...

Ha! Interesting.

DFW - In the past when I've opened one of those little, teeny-tiny eggs, there's no indication of a yolk formed at all let alone a totally colorless one!

wyomingheart - Sorry, the individual eggs are so small you'd better take two dozen!

Goatldi - I did think of making one very, very small egg white omelette!

Leigh - What I'm wondering is do all yolks start out that way? Without the yellow pigment? I'm guessing not, but . . .

Kristina - Yep, never seem a perfectly formed (but not colored!) yolk before either!

I think I've seen it all as far as chicken eggs go yolkless, whiteless,shelless, and empty shells over the years. Cockeyed Jo

Somebody is layin' down on the job!!!!!!!!

Or somebody is just sick-and-tired of winter.... >,-)

I think a nice, warm bowl of oatmeal, is called for... To warm up their little tummies. And get 'em, back on the job!

Mama Pea said...

Jo - Yep, I've seen many of them that you have but never an empty shell!

wisps of words - I suppose I should put a pat of butter and some brown sugar on the oatmeal, too, huh? ;o}

We always called these Wind Eggs. They are such a hoot! I have a little pile of these in a bowl in my hutch. God knows why.

Nancy @ Little Homestead In Boise said...

How odd, never heard of that!

Mama Pea said...

Susan - The little eggs you've kept in a bowl in your hutch . . . are they just the shells? I mean, did you blow them out? Or would they not go "rotten" with just the whites in them? (Curious minds want to know!)

Nancy - I've seen little bitty eggs with only the white in them and no indication of a yolk, but this one had that perfectly formed "yolk" but not yellow color whatsoever.

I have kept many eggs for whatever reason, tiny pullet eggs, a wild turkey egg, these wind eggs or fart eggs, I just put them in a container and they dry out by themselves. Shells are somewhat porous as you know, and I have never smelled anything bad coming from them. They do get a lot lighter in weight.

Mama Pea said...

WendyFromNY - Thanks for that info, Wendy. I had never heard of saving them that way until Susan (in her comment up above) mentioned it. Thank you for commenting!

Mama Pea,
Not that's too funny! Yolkless egg, did you feed your chickens something different?

Stay warm, and safe up there!!!

Sending hugs, and love you way :-)

Mama Pea said...

Sandy - Hope you're enjoying your spring time weather. We're just on the cool side -- zero this morning -- but haven't had much snowfall lately which makes it pretty easy. Don't have to spend much time shoveling and plowing. (Boy, I hope I didn't just jinx us!)

Maybe our chickens need a little yellow food coloring to work with?? ;o)

Lisa said...

Too funny!!! I've not seen that before either!!

Mama Pea said...

Lisa - Kinda makes one wonder just exactly what is the order in which an egg is formed, doesn't it? Is the perfectly formed yolk sack made before the yellow pigment and start of the embryo is created? That doesn't seem to make sense. I don't think we'll ever know how this one came to be!

Lynne said...

Well, That certainly is different! Wonder what happen! Poor hen! Maybe she's missing something in her diet? [ I know that's not the case. ] Does make you wonder what happen. Maybe a hard winter? I guess it's just one of those things that happen sometime, one of those things that their no answer to. Bet you were surprised!!
