Eggs are a food item added in the 7th Secret Friday Update, obtained only from chicken mobs. They are laid by chickens every 5 to 10 minutes (takes 40 minutes for 9 chickens to lay 50 Eggs = 7.2 minutes/egg).

Uses

As a Projectile

During the Beta update (20 December 2010), Eggs were made throwable at the request of a fan as a result of a Twitter Conversation. When thrown, Eggs have the same on-hit effect as Snowballs and additionally have a 1/8 chance of spawning a baby Chicken which will grow up in 2-3 Minecraft days. Alternatively, Eggs can be used as a projectile. They can be placed in Dispensers and fired upon activation.

Trivia

  • One egg can spawn up to four chickens, this is a rare occasion and the chances are 1 out of 256. Chickens also spawn from eggs shot out of a dispenser.
  • Eggs can be thrown very far, and often land over five blocks away from the player.
  • Eggs can normally be found wherever there are chickens, unless the chickens are newly spawned.
  • There is about a 1 in 8 chance a chick will spawn.

Bugs

  • There is a rare bug where if an Egg is thrown against a 1-block thick wall and a Chicken hatches, the baby chicken will travel through the wall and out the other side.
