Egg Inc Guide [Tips and Tricks]

Egg Inc is an interesting game that is partial tapper, and resource management over time. Starting out the game might be a bit confusing but the first thing you want to go is hold down the chicken button until you run out of hatchlings.

Suggested starting Skill trees

The trees can be a bit confusing, so we’ll attempt to clear up the first two tiers to give you an idea of which trees you want to start with each time you begin a farm with a fresh skill tree.

Tier 1

Comfortable NestsIncrease Egg laying rate by 10%
Nutritional SupplementsIncrease Egg Value By 25%
Better IncubatorsHatcher will refill 10% faster
Excitable Chickens0.1% Egg value bonus for each chicken

Starting off you want to Focus on  Comfortable Nest or Nutritional Supplements. Both of these skills increase the overall money output from your farm. There is no point to put money in to Better Incubators until you need points to advance to the next skill tree. Excitable Chickens is “ok” if you have the Epic Clucking or Epic Multiplier perks later on.

Tier 2

Hen House RemodelIncrease capacity of all habs by 5%
Internal HatcheriesEach hen house adds 2 additional chickens
Padded PackagingIncreases earnings per egg by 25%
Hatchery ExpansionIncreases hatchery capacity by 10
Bigger EggsDoubles egg value

In tier 2 you will want to focus on Padded Packaging and Bigger Eggs to increase your income. If you didn’t max out Tier 1, the next best option from tier 2 is Hen house or Hatchery Expansion as these will allow you to put more chickens into your buildings. Internal Hatcheries is good if you plan to be away from the game for awhile as it will slowly add chickens while you’re away.

One thing to keep in mind as you go through the other tiers, it requires you to spend points before the trees unlock. This doesn’t mean you have to go through each individual skill tree, it is a collective pool of points spent.

So I typically recommend skipping most of the tier 3 skill tree initially and focusing on maxing out the 1st, 2nd and 4th skill tree, unless you need the points to reach the 5th skill tree. The only thing worth grabbing right away is increase in fleet size to add a truck, and internal hatchery upgrade.

That should give you a good idea of how to use the normal skill trees. In the epic skill tree it’s more of what fits your play style. I am personally a fan of Hold to Hatch which increases how many chickens come out each second you hold the button and the lab upgrade for reduced research rates.

Collecting money and eggs.

Besides the standard method of collecting cash through how large your egg farm is there are a few other ways to rake in a lot of money. First is the additional videos. In most games you don’t see a big benefit from watching the videos, however in Egg Inc you are greatly rewarded for your time.

The second place where you will collect a nice stack of cash or eggs from the random crate that will periodically be dropped . You can get this either by tapping on the box in front of your farm or tapping the icon in the top right corner of the game screen.

You might over look these but tap on drones as you see them fly by. Drones can carry either money or eggs for you, and they are great after you’ve spent all your money when you aren’t pulling in a lot of money from your farm.

General Tips and Tricks

  • Upgrade your shipping trucks last and only when you’re close to running out of room.
  • Tap the check list to check current missions, these are great for farming eggs.
  • Tap the lighting bolt to open the boost menu – Tap the 2x multiplier to increase your money earned for 4 hours.
  • Considering buying eggs? Wait until your egg Piggy Bank surpasses The Big Crate. So you can get the same or more eggs for almost half the price.
  • Go to the next egg type as soon as possible, you don’t keep your money or skills.
  • Try maxing out all the “Reduce” epic skills to make each restart quicker.
