Eggs are a consumable food item in Vintage Story. They are produced by hens that have been domesticated.

Obtaining

Eggs are laid by domesticated hens that have eaten at least 3 portions of food. In order for a hen to feed, they must be able to access a small trough filled with an appropriate kind of food, generally grain. Both wild and domesticated hens will lay eggs. However, if the bird is not fenced in, it may be difficult to find the eggs they have laid.

Eggs can be laid on any tile that is accessible to the fed hen, however hens have a preference for laying eggs in henboxes. Up to three eggs can be laid in a single henbox, making them a more space-efficient and convenient way of collecting eggs. Otherwise, hens will lay eggs on any open tile that they can access, up to a maximum of three eggs per tile.

Usage

As food

Eggs may not be eaten raw. However, they can be cooked in a cooking pot to make scrambled eggs or soups. Eggs provide 200 protein satiety when cooked a meal.

For breeding

Eggs that have been laid in a henbox in the presence of a rooster may be fertilized. Fertilized eggs then need a hen to brood over them for three days, after which they will hatch into chicks. The new chicks will be one generation more domesticated than the hen who laid the eggs.
