I searched for every tag possible on an egg (item) but I didn't find anything special to get an egg that will never spawn a chicken. tags these are all the visible tags on an item.egg + the command I used to get them (I runned that command when I dropped the egg on the ground)

so does anyone know how to /give or get an egg without the chance to spawn a chicken?

  • Is there a particular reason why you use a lever to control a piston that pushes a redstone block that activates a repeating command block? Wouldn't just the lever be enough? Jul 5, 2018 at 10:58

It's not possible.

Eggs always have a chance to spawn a chicken. You could trace the egg and when it hits something, kill any chicken that appears at that location, but that's neither lag friendly, nor easy.

Could snowballs work instead?
