Description

A white egg from a bird.

Notes

  • Eggs decay similarly to other food items. When they have fully decayed, a chicken may hatch.
    • Both foraged eggs and eggs laid by hens have a chance to be fertile or infertile. Upon examining an egg, you will see if it is fertile or not. Note that any egg stored in a bulk container is no longer fertile.
    • Eggs must be placed on a grass, dirt tile, or crops in order to hatch. Eggs left on enchanted grass or a rock tile will not hatch.
    • 10% of fertile eggs will hatch into chicks, though this percentage likely varies based on creature populations.
    • Note that eggs stored in a fsb no longer have the ability to be hatched.
  • Eggs found through foraging vary in quality, depending on your foraging skill.
  • Renaming the egg sets the name for the hatched chick. However, it does not keep the name when it becomes a hen or rooster
  • Eggs also contain the unusual nondestructive ability to be "sucked", as right-clicking on an egg gives the option to Suck Egg. It will give you a weird feeling. This option is only available if you have no item active.
