The Fresh Egg is an HP-recovering food item appearing in EarthBound and Mother 3. In both games, if kept long enough in the inventory the egg will hatch into a Chick that will make a chirp noise on the overworld to alert the player that it hatched. If kept even longer, the chick will grow into a Chicken, which can then be sold for a huge profit over what the Fresh Egg originally cost. Both games encourage profiting from chickens by having means of obtaining Fresh Eggs for free.

In EarthBound, Fresh Eggs can be obtained for a limited time en masse for free from the Happy Happy Village food stand, though doing so results in being confronted by an Unassuming Local Guy. The stand closes down after defeating Carpainter.

In Mother 3, a chicken in Murasaki Forest just west of the Chimera Laboratory will give out unlimited free Fresh Eggs if talked to. In addition to the hatching into a chick and growing into a chicken feature, a Fresh Egg in this game will turn into the even more potent Hot Spring Egg if the player keeps a Fresh Egg in their inventory and then enters a Hot Spring.
