I am a body builder, it is bad to eat 10 eggs per day without yello egg part instead of using protein shakes? I'm skared of getting stones in my kidney.

That's a bit much. Weight lifters and body builders only really need 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day. In ten egg whites you're getting about 50 grams of protein right there.

Does protein overdose cause kidney damage?

Should not. Ingestion of large amounts of protein (for example protein supplements) should not have any deleterious effects on kidney function if you have normal kidneys. Proteins are broken down and then removed through the kidneys. Therefore, high protein diets tend to make the kidneys work harder and should be avoided in patients with preexisting kidney disease.
