Important Information
In-game name Egg
Item ID 344
Type Raw Materials
Stackable Yes (16)

Eggs are items that appear near Chickens every four to five minutes; this is because the Chicken "lays" them. Eggs can be used as a weapon and in crafting. They are used for making Pumpkin Pie and Cake.

When thrown

When an Egg hits something, there is a 1/8 chance that 1 baby Chicken will hatch and a 1/32 chance that 2-4 baby Chickens will hatch. This allows the player to set up a chicken farm without luring the Chickens using seeds.

As a weapon

While Eggs do not inflict damage (except to the Ender Dragon), they can be thrown to knock an enemy backwards, similarly to Ender Pearls and Snowballs


  • Eggs are the only mob drop that can be obtained without killing the mob.
  • Eggs stack by 16, along with Ender Pearls and snowballs.
