I got super excited last year when I heard that Bunny Day was approaching in Animal Crossing, but that all changed when I realized just how ubiquitous eggs had suddenly become. Fishing became a nightmare as every shadow turned into an egg when pulled from the water. Harvesting materials from trees and stone also became frustrating as the majority of items spawned from them turned into eggs.
Unfortunately for those who don't appreciate the holiday, Bunny Day runs for eight days total, March 28 through April 4. You've got a couple of choices. You could put Animal Crossing down until April 4, or you could change the way you play the game and earn a boatload of Bells in the process. Here are six tips for surviving Bunny Day, along with ways to make a bunch of Bells off of the holiday event.
6 tips for surviving Bunny Day
Bunny Day isn't all that bad as long as you change your mindset for playing the game. If you play correctly, you can make bank off of those ubiquitous eggs.
1. Craft and pawn those eggs!
On their own, the six different eggs that you can find around your island aren't worth that much. You'll only get 200 Bells per egg at Nook's Cranny. However, if you craft a Bunny Day recipe and then sell that recipe to Timmy and Tommy, you'll gain twice as many Bells for the number of eggs put into the recipe.
For example, you could sell three water eggs and get 600 Bells, or you could use these three eggs and craft them into the Bunny Day Stool, which sells for 1,200 Bells. So, instead of throwing those lucrative eggs away, craft them into those silly Bunny Day items and pawn them at Nook's Cranny. Here's a list of all of the Bunny Day recipes along with what they sell for.
2. Suck an egg!
You can consume eggs just like you can consume fruit. And just like with the produce, eating eggs gives you the power to move trees or break rocks. Before you consider selling your eggs or throwing them out, you might want to use them to landscape your island and keep your precious fruit for other uses.
3. Give eggs to your villagers
When you interact with your villagers, you'll sometimes be given a chance to give them a gift. You should always take this chance when possible because they might just give you Bells, a recipe, or a gift in return! If you already have a ton of eggs on hand, you can easily fork one over without feeling like you're getting rid of a valuable commodity. Just remember that if you turn down the chance to give one of your villagers something, you might not be able to give them anything for the rest of the day.
4. More eggs spawn when visiting islands
During the Bunny Day event, whenever you use Nook Miles Tickets to visit a random island, you'll find that the island has a ton of eggs hiding in the trees, rocks, ground, and water. Prepare yourself mentally for this because catching fish and getting materials isn't going to be as easy. But if you go to these islands fully intending on bringing back eggs, then you'll be able to craft some Bunny Day recipes and sell those trinkets at the Nook's Cranny shop.
You'll be able to find plenty of wood eggs, water eggs, and sky eggs while on your island, but it will be harder to come across stone eggs, leaf eggs, and earth eggs. The Nook Miles Ticket islands are great places to pick up these more elusive eggs.
5. Coconut trees spawn the most wood eggs
Of all of the trees in ACNH, the coconut trees have a higher chance of producing the most wood eggs. If you're trying to collect eggs for crafting, make sure to give those tropical arbors several good wacks with your ax.
6. A crapload of eggs
If you're really just not feeling Bunny Day and want a funny way to let off some steam, why not just eat all your eggs and then poop them out? Honestly, that's one reason why New Horizons is one of the best Nintendo Switch games out there.
All you need is a toilet and some eggs. Place the toilet somewhere, eat your eggs, and then hop on the toilet. Your character will take care of the rest.
I survived Bunny Day
Now you know a few tips for getting through Bunny Day. If you change your mindset to view the eggs as a limited-time money-making opportunity, the event becomes a lot more agreeable. More than anything, you'll want to craft your gathered eggs into Bunny Day recipes and then sell the finished products to Nook's Cranny. You can make a serious killing doing this, and you won't be quite as upset about catching an egg when you meant to catch a fish.
