In the Angry Birds series, Golden Eggs are special items hidden in the game, which unlock additional levels upon collecting them. In most cases, this is achieved by simply destroying or hitting an object or the egg itself in a few levels, while in other cases, it may require the player to touch an object or the egg in the game's menus. For clearing each episode with a three-star rating in every level within, the player will obtain a single Golden Egg, though rather than unlocking a level. It allows the player to access a mini-game. However, don't try to collect a Golden Egg with Mighty Eagle, as he will destroy it without collecting it.
This is a list of all of the Golden Eggs that appear in the original game.
There are currently 35 Golden Eggs (with an additional Golden Egg in iOS).
- After unlocking Matilda in Level 2-14 (Poached Eggs), go to the in-game help menu (by tapping or clicking the "?" button in the Pause menu) and tap or click the check button four times. On Matilda's screen, the Golden Egg should be right under Matilda's flying corpse instead of a regular egg. Tap or click it to collect.
- Go to Level 5-19 (Mighty Hoax). The Egg is floating in the air, above the rocket. Hit it with a bird (use Chuck for more chance of success), or with the debris from the structure. Try also with Matilda's flight after throwing its egg.

In another version, it is located at the Angry Birds Star Wars (or Angry Birds Star Wars II logo if it is a higher version, Angry Birds Go! if it is another higher version on PC). Tap it a few times and the egg should pop up, too. (This version only available on IOS)

- Go to Level 24-8 (Red's Mighty Feathers). The golden egg is a Red V8 that is floating on the top of the screen. Launch Chuck upwards, then as soon as he falls, get him to hit the rope. The Red V8 will fall and of course, you'll get the golden egg. Another way to get the egg is to launch Chuck towards a row of green vacuums. He will start to spin very fast, then after the last vacuum, immediately tap the screen to make Chuck speed up towards the rope. It may take several tries to do this.

Extra (The Golden King Pig): This is a special golden egg currently available to iOS users and Android users Via Google Play. The Golden King Pig will be seen on the second page of the Golden Eggs episode. When you tap on the Golden King Pig, you will be randomly sent to one of these 4 EXTRA Minigames and a random level.
Note: Your scores will NOT be logged in these events.
Extra Minigame 1. King Pig: All the birds turn into pigs and all the pigs in the fortress turn into eggs. In each level, each pig has a special ability. To clear the levels, the rules are similar to using the birds: use the pigs to smash all the eggs in the level.
Extra Minigame 2. Material Mix-Up!: Two of the materials of the Pigs' fortress will be swapped. The number of birds in the level and the rules to win remain the same, but with two of the materials switched, it changes the approach of a level.
Extra Minigame 3. Bird Frenzy!: Beat the level with UNLIMITED BIRDS!! When it sounds easy though, it's actually a little challenging. You only have a limited amount of time to clear the level and the bird choice is random and you're not told which bird might come next. For example, being given a bunch of Red Birds to combat in an all-stone level is extremely difficult.
Extra Minigame 4. Total Destruction!: Tap the level to explode it! You have 10 seconds. Everywhere you tap creates a small explosion. This event is not nearly as challenging in most cases.
Golden Grenade (Removed Dec. 20th, 2012)
They are in Friends. There are 2 in Green Day. These levels were removed along with the entire episode of Green Day on December 20th, 2012.
1. In 1-7, go to the top and you will see a chest. Tap it and the egg will appear.

The Golden Egg King
As a promotion for Facebook, a site was launched for mobile devices allowing players to create an avatar to be used in the future. The avatar builder site references adding your bird to the flock to protect the golden egg. A graphic shows an unusually large golden egg with a crown surrounded by hundreds of birds cheering as Red, Chuck, The Blues, Bomb, and Matilda raise it.
- Before the episode colors were removed in 2.1.0 (2.0.0 on PC), the representative color they used in Golden Eggs is yellow-orange.
