* The ''Facebook'' game ''Ovipets,'' where you breed horses, cats, and wolves, among other animals, all subsequently lay a egg. This is probably so it can have the game mechanic of turning other people's eggs to collect coins, and also give them a way to encourage you to keep coming back to the game; you have to turn the egg every so many hours by clicking on it for it to hatch, or have someone else do it.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'':
** A sylph is an AlwaysFemale fey who looks like a beautiful elf woman with dragonfly wings. To bear a daughter, she has to seek a mortal suitor, usually elf, human, or Halfling. Despite this, the child, described as a "baby girl with wing buds", hatches from an egg that the sylph keeps in a special nest, guarded by an air elemental.
** The game also gives this trait to pretty much any beast that has bird-like wings, no matter how much it resembles a mammal otherwise. Griffons, hippogriffs, and pegasi all hatch from eggs. (It's mentioned in the description for avorials, or winged elves, that there's an in-universe belief that this is true for them, but it is not.)

* Occasionally, a chicken might have trouble laying an egg. Instead of going down the oviduct and out the cloaca like normal, it might remain there. Another yolk comes down for the eggshell to form and it might encase the previous egg as well, resulting in what looks like a larger then normal egg once the chicken finally lays it. This large egg will have the previous egg inside it. Other times, an egg will come out with a shell and white, but no yolk, and such eggs were once thought to be laid by ''roosters''. Still other times, if a hen has some kind of distress or illness, she might lay a "cooked" egg. (No, really.) Most of the time, though, she will either lay sporadically or stop laying all together after that.

* The Easter Bunny, according to some. They're not all chocolate, you know. Mythologically, the bunny [[BalefulPolymorph originated as a egg-laying animal]]; being able to lay eggs once a year was a form of consolation (the day was only later {{retcon}}ned to Easter). Of course, in the original myths the bunny wasn't [[ShesAManInJapan Peter Cottontail]].

* PlayedWith in Creator/DrSeuss' ''Horton Hatches the Egg'': Everybody flocks to see the (male) elephant sitting on an egg, but it was actually laid by a bird who asked Horton to egg-sit (though it's unclear if the mother planned to come back). At the end, this trope turns out to be a case of [[spoiler:LamarckWasRight, as the egg hatches into a winged elephant]].
