When harvesting Mirelurk Eggs, it is important to note that some eggs will hatch into Mirelurk Hatchlings and attack you. They are easy to defeat, although in this case you can only harvest 2-3 eggs per nest.
Be aware that Mirelurks are lurking near the nesting sites and will attack you as well.
Mirelurk Eggs can sometimes be purchased from merchants and vendors, or found in fridges and blue fridges, so always check supplies and poke around these locations.
