Some of the animals known to lay eggs include birds like the ostrich, humming bird, eagle, the king fisher, reptiles like the crocodile, turtles, Iguana Lizard and other lizards, fishes like Siamese Fighters, Piranhas, and chichlids.
Most species of fish, amphibians, all birds, reptiles and most insects and arachnids lay eggs. In most reptiles and birds, fertilisation of the ovum is what produces the egg, which is the zygote. Animals that lay eggs, with very little or almost no other development within the mother, are called oviparous. Both reptile eggs and bird eggs laid outside water have a protective shell, either inflexible or flexible.
At 1.5 kilos the ostrich egg has the largest existing single cell known today, while weighing half a gram, the bee hummingbird lays the smallest known egg. Some reptiles and fishes lay eggs that are even smaller. Insects and invertebrates lay even tinier eggs. The platypus is the only known mammal that lays eggs.

There are myriads of animals that lay eggs and some of them include birds, fish, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. Bird eggs are incubated invariably i.e. The period is invariable.  Bird eggs are laid by female species and are incubated invariably i.e. The incubation period varies from species to species. Fish eggs laid by female are undeveloped and later on they get fertilized externally by male. Not all reptiles lay eggs but some of the reptilian species which are oviparous lay eggs.    Amphibian eggs look like jelly and are the eggs are fertilized externally.    Some of the bird species that lay eggs include chicken, duck, goose, ostriches these eggs are often used for food. Most common egg eaten world wide is the egg of a chicken. Various dishes can be prepared using eggs, eggs are most commonly used as breakfast items in various different forms like Fried eggs , Boiled Eggs , Omlettes, scrambled eggs , French toast etc . Even cakes are baked using eggs & lot of oriental cuisines use egg as part of the recipe.

Animals with ears going inwards (not visible on the surface) lay eggs. Animals with outward ears like humans, monkeys, etc don't lay eggs.

All bird species lay eggs. Some reptiles lay eggs and some fish lay eggs while there are other fish that have live births. Swimming mammals like whales, sharks, and dolphins have live births.
