Egg Inc Wiki

The Hatchery is the initial way of producing chickens in Egg, Inc. Its base chicken capacity is 250 with a refill speed of 50 chickens per second, and an output rate of 32 chickens per second(?)[verification needed]. It is located between the Research Building and Shipping Depot.

The building's appearance is different for each type of egg.


It is affected by research which increases the maximum size of the hatchery and research which increases the chicken refill speed.

  • The maximum chickens that the hatchery can hold is 500.
  • The maximum refill speed for the hatchery is base×16.875 (a 1587.5% increase from the base speed).
