An Egg is an object dropped about every 5-10 minutes by chickens in Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. It is used as a ingredient to bake a cake or, when thrown, to spawn Chickens. There is a 12.5% (1/8) chance that a single chicken will spawn with an egg, and a 1 in 256 chance that an egg will spawn 4 chickens at once.


  • Using a Dispenser is any easy way to throw large quantities of eggs. However, the spawn rate is the same as manually throwing them.
  • The maximum stack unit for Eggs is 16, as opposed to the normal 64.
