Combat[edit]

Players are able to throw eggs at mobs and give the same effect as if the mob were being damaged by a weapon. They deal 1 (Half Heart.svg) to Ender Dragons (except when hit in the head), 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, an egg has a 18 chance of spawning a chick. If this happens, there is an additional 132 chance of spawning four chicks (instead of just one). In other words, whenever an egg is thrown, there is a 1256 chance of spawning four chicks.

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 Nether 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.
