Assuming you have not planted a more exotic type of yellow cucumber but just planted the ordinary green kind, it may be that you are allowing your cucumbers to stay on the vine too long. Cucumbers past their prime do turn yellow and get fat. Here are our growing tips for cucumbers: http://extension.umd.edu/learn/vegetable-profiles-cucumbers
