A nice fresh egg.
Egg detail

An egg is an item used mainly in Cooking, to make cakes and egg potatoes.


An egg usually spawns near most chicken coops, including three respawn points at the farm north of Lumbridge, at Fred the Farmer's chicken coop, two respawn points at the farm north of Port Sarim, at the chicken coop north-east in Entrana, and in front of the Chicken Shrine outside the Evil Chicken's Lair in Zanaris.

The Culinaromancer's Chest in Lumbridge Castle basement sells 50 to members who have completed all parts of Recipe for Disaster.

If you use an egg on the Chicken Shrine it will say in your chatbox "Nice idea, but nothing interesting happens".

Chickens can lay eggs. Because the egg laying is related to a tick cycle (like farming/potions etc) but its off by default. When a player poisons a chicken its tick cycle will be turned on resulting in not only the chicking receiving poison damage but also chickens laying eggs every once in a while (egg dropping below a chicken while the chicken says 'sqwuak!'.
