How to Hatch (Incubate) Eggs in ARK: Survival Evolved

The process of incubating and hatching fertilized eggs is one of the most important and time-consuming things you can do in ARK: Survival Evolved. Each egg is different depending on the species of the parents and when the baby hatches it will require a lot of care and attention. In order to make sure the egg hatches, you need to make sure the temperature is just right or the baby inside will die. You can use things like fire and air conditions to level out the temperature to create the perfect hatching environment for your egg. If you happen to use other resources like an egg incubator, you can also use that while making sure the temperature is properly maintained.


How to Incubate Eggs in ARK: Survival Evolved

In order to properly incubate a fertilized egg in ARK: Survival Evolved, you will need to place the egg directly on the ground where you plan to leave it. Before doing this, however, you will need to check that the temperature is absolutely optimal. If you need to interrupt the incubation for any reason, you can also pick up the egg.

You also have the option of keeping the egg longer by refrigerating it. The eggs themselves also won’t lose health until they’re on the ground, so make sure you’re storing them properly if you’re looking to incubate and hatch them later.
