"Hey, Mr English guy! I think your egg is hatching!"
Jacob Kowalski reacting to the hatching of an Occamy Egg[src]

The egg of the Occamy had a shell made of pure silver, which accounted for why it was so much sought after. It also had lustre-giving properties and was rather nutritious to the hair.[1]

Occamy egg shells were an essential ingredient for the brewing of Felix Felicis.[1]

Occammy eggs

Gilderoy Lockhart developed a shampoo made from Occamy egg yolks that guaranteed "locks of lustrous luminosity", even though the expense and danger of producing it ensured it never was produced for a mass market.[3][2]

On 6 December 1926, Jacob Kowalski found an occamy egg on the bench next to him, inadvertently dropped by Newton Scamander. While trying to return it to him, the egg began to hatch.[4]

Later, Newt showed Jacob a nest of Occamies newly hatched from their eggs, including the one hatched from the egg he found, which Jacob was allowed to hold.[5]

Newton Scamander would later give a case of Occamy egg shells to Jacob Kowalski as bank collateral so that he could open his bakery.[6]

Behind the scenes

  • In Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, this ingredient was featured in Beta testing for the game, but it along with other ingredients and potions were cut from the final edit and were not released in the game.
