A royal dragon egg is the unchecked variant of the royal dragon that can be obtained through Adam Antite, the trapper farmhand, after sending him on a retrieval on the player-owned farm. It can be checked at level 92 Farming.
Adam Antite has a 1/1,001,001 chance to find the egg each time the player sends him off.
Though both a checked and unchecked egg may be traded freely between players, only the unchecked variant may be sold on the Grand Exchange.
- The royal dragon egg was present in the game cache and the Grand Exchange at the initial release of player-owned farms, but was entirely unobtainable. It was planned to be removed in a later update, but this did not happen and the egg was repurposed with the release of farmhands.
- The egg version of player-owned farm dragon eggs (with the egg inventory icon) are only used for the item when it is dropped on the floor by the dragon, becoming the dragon version when picked up. As the royal dragon egg is not dropped to the floor, the egg version continues to be completely unused and unobtainable.

The unchecked royal dragon egg listed on the GE is one of the unchecked animal objects that is not obtainable (and for which we have a job to remove to clear up the confusion). Royals only obtained via breeding (and hence not ever in unchecked state)."
