ARK: Survival Evolved – How to Incubate Eggs

In addition to taming wild creatures in Ark: Survival Evolved, you will also be able to hatch creatures from eggs. This can be a lengthy process that requires a lot of care, but we are here to help you become a proficient incubator.

To help you learn more about hatch, we’ll go over everything you need to know about the process. In this guide you will see the incubation process described as incubation. First, let’s see how to get an egg so you can start hatching.

How to get an egg

Before you try to get an egg, it’s important to know where the egg came from. Not all creatures drop eggs – you can only get them from non-mammalian creatures. In addition, you can hatch only fertilized eggs. Normally, wild creatures will drop an egg on the ground, but they will not be fertilized.


To get a fertilized egg, you will need to breed two organisms. Mating requires two organisms of the same species of the opposite sex. Below you can check the requirements for breeding.

  • Two creatures need to adjacent
  • Roam is activated
    • If you’re worried about creatures wandering too far, you can craft a pen to contain them
  • Mating Enabled
  • Creature currently unable to track anything (including you)
  • Of them inventory should not be too full
  • Creature cannot be mounted
  • Creature cannot be defeated or neutralized
  • this is a mating ‘cooldown’, so the creatures shouldn’t have mate recently

When all these conditions are met, your creatures will be able to mate. This will cause red hearts to appear on the heads of both creatures and they will start the process. The mating process took some time, but it will immediately end if the pair is split. When mating is complete, the female will drop an egg that you can pick up.

How to incubate eggs

To hatch an egg, you will need to keep it in an area with stable temperature. Maintaining a steady temperature can be done in a number of ways, which you can see below.

Campfires and torches

This is a very simple way to maintain the temperature, but it can also be quite challenging. ONE camp-fire gives off a fair amount of heat, however, there are external factors that can alter the overall temperature. If you choose to use campfires and torches, be sure to monitor the egg closely.

Air conditioners

Egg Incubator

This can be used to lower the room temperature for eggs that need a lower temperature for incubation.

Air conditioners will be available for 21 engrams when you become level 61. You will need the following materials to craft this item.

  • 80 Metal Ingots
  • 15 Electronics
  • 5 Polymers
  • 15 Crystal
  • Hatcher

Hatcher

Egg incubators are available with Genesis: Part 2 DLC. With the incubator you can put up to 10 eggs inside and choose your desired temperature. This will be available for 55 engram points when you become level 89. Below, you can refer to the materials needed to make an incubator.

  • 500 metal ingots
  • 350 Polymers
  • 200 shells
  • 100 cement paste (or Achatina Paste)
  • 250 Electronics

As noted above, the time and temperature at which you incubate the eggs will vary. We’ll look at the eggs of every non-mammalian species, as well as information on incubation, below.

Tips for hatching eggs

As you can see, annealing temperatures can range from near freezing to boiling hot. In addition, many types of eggs have very narrow temperature windows that need to be considered. For example, a Yutryannus egg has a three-degree range for an acceptable incubation temperature. This means that using a campfire to hatch this egg may not be the best idea; If it gets cold outside, the egg temperature may drop and the eggs won’t hatch.

You can check the current air temperature from your inventory, which displays your character’s stats. On the right side of this panel you will see the current temperature, displayed in Celsius or Fahrenheit (temperature measurement can be changed from the settings menu).

Temperatures can vary between areas on the map, but for the most part, temperatures will remain average for the area. For example, the southern end of the base game island will generally be hotter than any other area. Keep this in mind if you choose to incubate your eggs outdoors.

In general, you should give priority to equipping an incubator or an air conditioner for eggs that require high and precise temperatures. If you don’t have access to these items, you can create an enclosed area with a torch to place the egg inside. This will only incubate the eggs that need a higher temperature.

That’s all there is to know about incubating eggs. Don’t forget to explore and tame new creatures so you can spawn and get more eggs!
