How to Acquire
Chicken eggs are laid by hens in a chicken coop. It takes roughly 24 hours for a hen to lay an egg. There needs to be at least one empty space below the hen, otherwise the egg won't appear.
If there is a cock in the coop with the hen, the produced egg will be fertile and will hatch into a chick. Fertile eggs need to be brooded by a hen in order to hatch. To be brooded, the egg needs to be in a space anywhere below the hen. A fertilized egg can be moved, but if it's been without a brooding hen for too long, the hatching process will stop. This will "kill" the egg, effectively turning it into unfertilized.
New eggs that are layed will have a quality of the average qualities of the hen and the cock, ±5.
Because removing a fertilized egg doesn't immediately stop its hatching timer, chicks sometimes hatch inside a cauldron while boiling eggs.
