Laid by Moas. Place in an incubator to hatch it
~ Book of Lore

Moa Egg is an item in the Aether.


They are laid by tamed or wild Moa mobs, akin to Chickens. Moas are uncommon, so one may have to search a fair bit before they find a Moa.


Moa Eggs have to be placed inside an Incubator, using Ambrosium Torches to warm the egg. After a while, the egg will hatch, and a Baby Moa will spawn. Feeding the Baby Moa with Aechor Petals will make it mature into an adult. Four for a Blue Moa, six for White Moa, and eight for a Black Moa.

  • Moa Eggs do not appear to have damage values to indicate egg-type, and using the "/give" command will give them a weighted random type each time.
