You should do multiple heights....

I would go with:

6in.
1ft
3ft
5-6ft
8ft
10ft
you can alter those to however you want, but when i was in elementary those are the heights we used.

Are you placing the eggs in a box with padding, or just dropping them? Otherwise the egg will proably break on 6in.

Default just trying to help

I agree with Archenemy550 but it also depends on the ground surface too.

i came across an amazing fact. you might wanna include it.
In 1994, an egg was dropped from a helicopter onto a golf course in Blackpool from a height of 213 metres (699 ft.). Incredibly, it did not break!!!

Default Unbreakable Eggs?!

That is simply amazing! Did they mention what was used to catch the egg? or was it simply dropped onto the ground? Surely they must have used something to catch the egg!
