How to find Earth eggs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons explained

Earth eggs are, as you might have guessed, found in the ground in New Horizons.

Keep a lookout for cracks in the ground, just like those that contain fossils, and, when you dig them up, you might find yourself holding an Earth egg.


How to find Leaf eggs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons explained

Leaf eggs are by far the easiest egg to find in New Horizons, because they grow on trees.

All you have to do is walk around your island and, when you find a tree growing these special eggs, shake it to make them fall from the ground.


Once you've collected enough Leaf eggs, you should discover three new DIY recipes!

How to find Sky eggs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons explained

Sky eggs can be found by popping the special Bunny Day balloon that will float across your island in New Horizons.

Make sure you might every balloon you see too, because you might find a Bunny Day DIY recipe.

Shoot down special Bunny Day balloons to find Sky eggs.

How to find Stone eggs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons explained

You can find Stone eggs by hitting rocks with your shovel in New Horizons. Rather than another Iron Nugget or piece of Stone, you might find a Stone egg popping out of the rock when you hit it.


How to find Water eggs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons explained

If you want to collect Water eggs in New Horizons, then it's time grab your fishing rod and start fishing.

Head to any water source and toss out your line to the nearest fish shadow. When you reel the fish in you might discover that, instead of a fish, you've caught a Water egg instead.


New to Animal Crossing? Our Animal Crossing New Horizons tips can help with the basics. From the off, there's fish and bugs to catch, flowers and fruit to grow with Leif selling seeds, villagers to add or remove and tools such as the new ladder and vaulting pole to collect. Once you have settled in, you'll want to be making as many Bells as possible, start collecting K.K. Slider songs and work on your island star rating, increase your HHA ranking, incorporate Feng Shui into your room design and acquiring kitchen furniture. You can also buy fake art from Redd, use the Dream Suite and island backup.

How to find Wood eggs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons explained

Wood eggs are found by chopping trees just like how you collect the various types of wood in New Horizons.

Simply head around your island, chopping any old tree and you might find a Wood egg instead. Just make sure you look out for wasps!
