Dragon eggs come in various colors. Judging from the colour of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons, the colouring of the eggshell appears to indicate the colouring of the dragon within.
Dragons have been known to lay eggs in a clutch of up to at least five, & may lay several clutches during its lifetime. Although the subject of dragon mating habits is debatable, some maesters believe that if a dragon never laid an egg in its lifetime, it must be male. Whether an egg has to be fertilized by a male dragon in order to hatch is not known.
There were dragon hatcheries on the island of Dragonstone under the Dragonmont volcano, where many eggs and young hatchlings could be found. The dragon called Cannibal was known to attack the hatcheries & eat eggs and newborn hatchlings.
When a new member of House Targaryen was born, it was traditional to place an egg in their cradle. If the dragon hatched, it was considered a sign that the baby was a true Targaryen. If the egg did not hatch, or if the dragon born was weak and died quickly, it was considered a bad omen. This tradition continued even after the last dragon died and the eggs stopped hatching, and these dragon eggs were cherished possessions of their owners.
The last Targaryen dragon laid a clutch of five eggs. What happened to them is not known. Whether there are any dragon eggs left in the smoking ruins that were Valyria is not known. On the island of Dragonstone, there is supposed to be a fabled hoard of dragon eggs.
Fossilized dragon eggs are more precious than rubies. Ser Jorah Mormont tells Daenerys Targaryen that one of her dragon’s eggs could buy a ship to take her back to the Free Cities.
