Spawner egg. Bird eggs are occasionally laid by adult birds. If you look carefully, you may find and eat them. Cooking an egg will increase its nutritional value.

A bird must be on soft ground to lay an egg. It will not lay eggs on granite or other hard surfaces. If you disturb a bird while it lays eggs, it will cancel the process. A noise is created when a bird lays an egg. Some birds may lay eggs more frequently, like ravens and ostriches.

- Cooked small eggs- 5 Hunger points (0.4 Nutritional Value)
- Cooked large egg - 12 Hunger points ( full bar ) (1.0 Nutritional Value)
Cooking eggsCooked eggs provide more hunger points then raw eggs. To cook an egg, a raw egg and a bucket of water must be placed in a furnace, giving the effect of boiling.
It's wasteful to cook eggs one at a time because it will use up one fuel item for each egg. But each egg cooked moves the water bucket and the process then stops.
There are two ways to avoid this. Either have enough water buckets to allow all the eggs to cook unattended (11 per coal chunk), or have at least 2 water buckets (3 is better). Then you have to watch the furnace constantly and every time a water bucket moves, place it back in the BATCH area before the final bucket is used.
