I ended up getting all of mine from Chickens, after 1600 grain squozzen and 988 eggs harvested. I couldn't pet or water many egg plants because the hordes had gotten there before me *g*. I did get the first 4 (all different eggs) within roughly 800 grain and then it took forever to get the last one.
And mine are all from egg plants. That said, I've squeezed enough chickens in the fruitless part of my quest to amass four bales of grain. But the egg plants have not let me down--I got the trophy after about an hour of petting the plants (wow, that sounds so...strange).
I got eggs from both sources, but more success with the egg plants - all of which came from petting. (I agree, Axa, that's a little... awkward to write)
After about 12 bushels of grain, I think I got 4 or 5 eggs from chickens - the other 14 or 15 were from egg plants. (With the advantage of not filling up my bags once I quit harvesting and just watered and petted.)
ETA: The egg plants in Groddle Meadow haven't felt so loved in a long time, I bet! LOL
I only harvested about five eggplants, but I got two eggs from them. Eggs from chickens were less frequent, but chickens are easier to find so I ended up with about fifteen altogether, before I gave up and traded for the fifth one.
It only took me about an hour to get the trophy - I think the egg plants are more overloaded with attention today, though! Still, since chickens never tire out, even with low animal skills it should be possible to get all five in a weekend.
I've found that Egg Plants give more frequently, but you have to catch it when you're able to water and pet, because just harvesting hasn't yielded anything for me. Chickens much less frequently. I got my trophy and another full set fairly quickly, but now it seems I'm getting Easter Eggs much less often. I only have a total of 16 Easter Eggs, but have received 46 bushels of grain and 2100 eggs. Whew! A lot of compulsive work! :-)
I've got the highest AK skills available and I only got eggs from the egg plants until I was just about done. I got one golden egg from a chicken! I already had five golden eggs and several of all the others so it took a very long time to get the egg from squeezing the feathered critter, but it did happen.
I had also thought that maybe getting them from chickens was an old thing. I was going to check the forums to see if I was the only one not getting chickens to give eggs...but then I got the one.
I've gotten my Easter Eggs from the following:
- Petting and Harvesting Egg Plants (none from watering)
- Squeezing chickens
I couldn't get the Pysanka Easter Egg on my own (last night), and so I traded with another kind Glitchen in order to get my Chocolate Bunny Trophy. This morning, I have been able to get 3 Psyanka Easter Eggs on my own, each from what I mentioned above.
