Egg box

Egg box

A box with soft material made to hold eggs. Egg-laying animals will lay eggs in egg boxes if they can. Your haulers will take all the eggs out only when the box is full, to save time. The box also protects eggs from deteriorating outdoors, though it does not protect from temperature damage.

Egg boxes is a miscellaneous building that egg-laying animals will try to lay eggs in. They do not protect eggs from temperature spoilage, but do prevent deterioration from exposure.

Acquisition[edit]

The egg box can be constructed with Stuff 20 Stuff (Metallic/Woody, 200 for SMVs) and 2,000 ticks (33.33 secs) of work to make.

Summary[edit]

Hold up to 25 eggs of a single type. Once it has 20 eggs it will be emptied by haulers. They do not protect eggs from temperature spoilage, but do prevent deterioration from exposure. Egg-laying animals will try to lay the egg in the box if they are within range[What Range?] and the box is accessible, allowing them to be both protected and easily collected.

Analysis[edit]

Egg laying animals will always lay egg in an egg box if one is available in their assigned pen,[Verify] therefore, egg boxes are extremely useful to control the environment in which the eggs are placed.

Egg boxes function as shelves preventing weather and outdoors degradation types e.g. "Outdoors", "Unroofed", "Rain", "Shallow Water", etc., however, they do not prevent eggs from rotting (rotting eggs vanish just like all other food stuffs). Additionally, egg boxes do not prevent fertilized eggs from being spoiled, despite this, they can be used to force animals to lay eggs in a heated or cooled room, preventing temperature spoilage.

Strategically placing egg boxes can also minimize the amount of hauling work to be done, as it a. prevents pawns from hauling eggs until the egg boxes egg count reaches 20 (or until they are manually tasked to do so); b. by collecting all eggs in a single location rather then having them be spread across a room or pen distance traveled by a pawn tasked with hauling will be greatly reduced.
