Animal Crossing: New Horizons Eggs — How To Get Each Type For Bunny Day

Being an Easter-inspired event, it’s no surprise that eggs feature prominently into Bunny Day, Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘ first-ever seasonal event. It’s live from now through April 12, and while the basics are all outlined for you, there are some details you might need to discover on your own. Below, we’ve detailed all six types of eggs and how to obtain each one.

The majority of the eggs require some type of tool, so you’ll want to have some materials on hand. In particular, from my experience, there are a ton of balloons out, so you’ll want to craft at least one slingshot on hand at all times so you don’t miss out on any. (If you’ve unlocked Nook’s Cranny, you can buy one from the cabinet in the back-left corner for 900 bells.)

Speaking with Zipper T. Bunny reveals there are six types of eggs, but he only mentions five ways of obtaining them. Here’s the full list of all six and how to get them:

Egg Type How To Obtain
Leaf egg Shaking egg trees
Stone egg Hitting rocks
Water egg Fishing
Sky egg Popping Bunny Day-colored balloons
Earth egg Digging up fossil-style cracks
Wood eggs Hitting trees with an axe

Leaf eggs are specifically found in trees with eggs hanging on them, in the same way you’d obtain fruit. While you’re at a tree, make sure to swing your axe (use a stone axe or flimsy axe to avoid chopping down the tree) to chop wood–you’ll occasionally get a Wood egg. This is the least apparent of the six types, although a kind villager might clue you in.

Water eggs can be gotten from fishing; you’ll want to target the same fish-shaped silhouettes as usual. Sky eggs drop from popping special Bunny Day-colored balloons with a slingshot (although these presents can also include DIY recipes). Earth eggs are dug up from cracks with a shovel, just like fossils.

Finally, Stone eggs are obtained by hitting rocks. To maximize your chances, make sure to use the strategy that involves barricading yourself in. Make sure all eight spaces around the rock are clear, and then dig three holes just beyond one of those open sides. Position yourself in the middle, facing the rock, so that you’re fairly snug between the hole and rock. Then, use your shovel–you should be able to hit the rock eight times without wasting time on repositioning yourself. The rocks you find on Mystery Tour islands (the ones you visit by spending Nook Miles Tickets) can also provide a “whole pile of ’em,” according to a villager–we’re trying to confirm that now, but what we’ve seen suggests these rocks may not work differently than those on your island.

There are numerous DIY recipes you’ll obtain throughout the event, and they all require eggs as ingredients, so you’ll want to collect as many as you can. By collecting and crafting one of each recipe, Zipper promises a special gift.
