I found these rocks in my pasture and was excited because I thought I had found some geodes. The rocks were in a sandy bank and looked like eggs sticking out of the bank. I am located in Ness County Kansas. rough rock

This is what they looked like after I opened them. There are no crystals but some had a round ball in the center. Others were just empty centers. enter image description here

Hi: Your rocks are not geodes but likely concretions. The wiki article even mentions concretions from Kansas though the concretions described don't to me fit what I see in the images. Better pictures and more description about the rocks would lead to better identification. See Better rock ID requests
