Moa Egg is an item in the Aether. They come in varying colors and appearances, which denote the variant of Moa breed.


They are laid by wild Moas in their Moa Nests. Successfully stealing an egg will make nearby Moas aggro onto the player. Rainbow Moa Eggs are only obtainable via Creative Mode.


An Incubator must be preheated with Ambrosium Chunks before they can be hatched and then placing the egg in once fully heated with begin the hatching process, causing the Moa to hatch from the Incubator once it hits 100%.

Feeding a Baby Moa with Aechor Petals will make it mature to an adult and allow it to be saddled with a Moa Saddle. They can also be cooked in a Holystone Furnace to produce a Fried Moa Egg.

Rainbow Moa Eggs act like spawn eggs and will spawn a randomly colored Moa on each right-click use. Right-clicking the resulting Moa will give the egg it would normally give.
