Talk:Turtle Egg

Apparently Turtles can nurture their own eggs and cause them to hatch monumentally faster, it happened overnight as I watched an adult turtle stand over their eggs and green sparkles came out. Seconds later, sudden baby turtles. I couldn't find this behavior anywhere else on the internet or the Wiki, nor remember it being in the changelogs, and wanted to throw it up on the talk page for clarification. 12:51, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Hatching time[edit]

Does anyone know even very approximately how lot it takes them to hatch? 03:02, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Could swear I heard /read somewhere it was a (vague guesstimate, you asked for it) 5-15 min. period of time. Mind the (Hostile /"Neutral") Mobs! Yilante 4 /6 /18 7:54 pm 02:55, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
I've had trouble hatching eggs in non-beach chunks 02:11, 15 July 2018 (UTC), and now I've also seen masses of turtle eggs hatch only at just after dusk and just before dawn. 0Blok 14:21, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
My girl is having a similar result to this, and was asking me if turtle eggs only hatch at night. I guess realistically that would make sense, but I had to say no one seems to know. Firebastard (talk) 06:04, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
Turtle eggs do not only grow through their stages at night. This was tested in both Java as well as Bedrock editions. I'm not sure about the hatching itself, whether this is different, but unlikely. – Jack McKalling [ Talk Contrib ] 10:02, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
Tested further, hatching itself is not different from growth stages. Turtles hatch from eggs during the day as well. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 16:17, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
"A new egg placed near another egg that is about to hatch causes the new egg to hatch faster.[verify]" Here's a verification video. 15:39, 26 September 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, I'm not seeing how that video verifies the claim. Can you explain what's going on? ~ Amatulic (talk) 21:11, 26 September 2019 (UTC)
By placing a turtle egg onto the same block as another turtle egg that has already gone through at least one hatching stage, the newly placed egg will instantly have the same level of hatching stages. 15:03, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Exposure to light[edit]

" The egg will not hatch unless exposed to the sky, with no opaque blocks overhead." This is not true. My first batch were all zombie stomped, so I put a stone brick shelf 1 block above the sand. The eggs all hatched. (Java/Survival) Buckosoft (talk) 23:53, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

I removed it. I wonder if turtle eggs fully enclosed will still hatch? ~Amatulić (talk) 17:11, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

Face Culling[edit]

Can confirm (using spectator), one of the faces still renders. ( Samario1 (talk) 22:37, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

Detection range[edit]

The page describes the detection range is taxicab distance of 23 blocks. However, the actual detection range is 23 blocks for the north-south and east-west axes independently. In other words, the detection range can be described as a 47 by 47 square with the turtle eggs in the middle. Taxicab distance, on the other hand, would be a 23 radius diamond.
