Combat[edit]

Eggs are able to knockback mobs and gives the same effect as if the mob were being damaged. They deal 1 (Half Heart.svg) to Ender Dragons [1], but no damage to other mobs. Eggs can also be fired from dispensers and are affected by gravity. Throwing eggs at neutral mobs will provoke them.

Spawning chickens[edit]

When thrown, eggs have a 18 chance of spawning one baby chicken, if that happens, there is an additional 132 chance of the egg spawning 4 baby chickens instead of one (or, a 1256 chance).

Trivia[edit]

  • If the player is standing near a chicken when it lays an egg, a "pop" can be heard. However, this does not occur in Pocket Edition.
  • Eggs will break midfall if hit by another projectile; The chance of spawning a baby chicken is not affected.
  • Throwing an egg at a portal will break the egg when it hits the portal.
  • If a player is killed with eggs, it will say "[victim] was pummeled by [killer]". This message is unused because eggs don't cause damage. Ender pearls and snowballs will also display this message.
  • If an egg is thrown at an adult chicken and a baby is spawned, the baby chicken will follow the adult chicken around, thinking the adult chicken is its parent.
