In July 1996, a headline in The Guardian read "IVF doctors: don't rely on frozen eggs."[2]

In 1997, during the Horcrux hunt, Hermione Granger took some eggs and bread from a farmhouse to help satisfy the hunger of herself, Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley, leaving behind Muggle money as compensation.

One popular way of enjoying eggs is fried. Hard-boiled is another popular choice. Fish eggs are an ingredient of Fishy Green Ale, served at wizarding pubs around London.

Ovomancy was a type of divination that involved cracking open eggs and observing which way the yolks fell. It was popular with Ravenclaw students at Hogwarts.[3]
