Description

Eggs are periodically dropped by Chickens (about every 5 minutes). In addition to crafting various food items (e.g., Cake and Pumpkin Pie), they can be used to hatch new chickens (about a 1 in 16 chance for each egg). Thus, to have a 100% chance to get a pair of chickens (enough to start breeding), you'll need at least 32 eggs. Finally, when thrown at a mob, eggs cause a very minor knockback effect (similar to a Snowball).
