Werejackal Kobold Egg
« on: October 14, 2012, 12:20:58 pm »

So I embarked on a cave and apparently inside of it is a Werejackal that turned back into a Kobold less than a day after unpausing. Inside the cave tucked away in the corner are two forbidden Kobold eggs.

..... Will they hatch? D:

(Bonus Dorf Mode: The embark site also has a volcano and the Kobold is just kinda chilling in her cave, unaware my Dorfs embarked about 50 feet from the entrance)

Nope! Eggs require a nest box and they need to be incubated. As soon as the mother moves off the eggs, bam, dead eggs. Good for cooking with though

... I think eggs only hatch in a nest egg, as long as an animal sits on it and a male of that specie was present when they were concepted(?).

Since they were laid on bare ground and mommy werejackal isn't around, I guess they won't. Sorry.

Don't eat them! They may be uterly useless (almost like their hatched adult counterparts) but they are a rare find on an unmodded game.

Build an giant altar around them and fill the room with copper large daggers and shiny pebbles and baubles.

Isn't it more satisfying to have the rarest of omlettes?

Well I floored up the only entrance to the caves. It's a disappointing cave since it only spans 1 z-level and only has one way in and out. So, this means crazy mama-werejackal kobold will just chill out in the small cave forever until I decide what to do with it all. The eggs won't like, rot and disappear will they?

Perhaps you can build a nest box chamber, connect it to her lair - while using some method to seal the room from your fortress.

Wild creatures used to take over nest boxes. I don't think they do anymore.:( may need some hackery.

Is the werejackal still a civ member? If so, it needs to be married to have babies.
