One of the more exercise-focused aspects of Pokémon Go is hatching eggs. Each egg has a distance meter next to it, and when you put that egg in an incubator it becomes active. When you walk the distance marked on the egg while playing the game, the egg will hatch and you'll get a brand new Pokémon with a bunch of Pokémon Candy for that creature.
The difficult thing here isn't the walking, it's choosing which egg to incubate next. You only get one incubator with unlimited uses, and every other incubator — whether purchased or received from a level up — has a three use limit. The best way to choose which eggs go in which incubator is to know which Pokémon are in the egg to begin with. While there's no what to know exactly which creature is in your specific egg, here's a list of Pokémon and the egg types they show up in.
And that's it! From here you can plan out which eggs would be best for you to hatch right now. For example, focusing on 2km eggs is great if you are hoping to quickly level up a starter Pokémon, and 10km eggs are great if you want something unique. The only uncertainty with these eggs is Candy.
The amount of Candy you get from each Egg is random, somewhere between 5 and 35 Candies. That could mean you get an Eevee with everything you need to evolve it on the spot, or it could mean you get a Pidgey with 5 Candy that makes you sad on the inside. Either way, hatch as many as you can!

Incubators have a three use limit, not five. Basically, try not to waste your limited incubators on eggs that aren't 10 km. Posted via the Android Central App
So i have to get rid of my 2 and 5km eggs one by one?
That's entirely up to you, but 2k eggs are mostly garbage. Sure you hatch the occasional Charmander, but there's a lot of Pidgey and Weedle. Eggs are kind of a racket in my opinion. Posted via the Android Central App
And instead of making this long list you could have just added the egg chart.
Cripes...back at it again, eh Mr. H?
Try to contain yourself.
Are people still playing this garbage? Posted via the Android Central App
Hate to tell you, but yes. A ton of people are. Posted via the Android Central App
You'd think someone calling themselves "Cycling Nut" would be a bit more positive about a game that gets people off their arse and out of the house... It's best to assume I'm being sarcastic. if I'm ever serious I'll type "/s" to make it clear.

Why? It's best to assume I'm being sarcastic. if I'm ever serious I'll type "/s" to make it clear.

I thought maybe you guys were aiming for the younger crowd. Posted via the Android Central App
I think the best thing about this game is the variety of people playing it. So many different people from every walk of life, it's kind of amazing.
I hear the objective of this game is to get people out and about? Help people exercise because you actually have to walk all over the place Posted via the Android Central App
I'm 49. I use it for fun when I'm taking my daily walk around a park right across the street from where I live. It has 4 Pokestops along a 1.5 mile (or so) trail. I go 3x around every day that the weather is decent. I don't go off the trail looking for Pokemon and I can hatch quite a few eggs just doing what I normally do - walking. I use the unlimited incubator for the short duration eggs and the limited use one for the longest ones in my collection. I think I'm at level 12. I have no idea how to train or fight and the gym in the park is almost never held by my "team". There is another gym within 1 mile of my house on another trail with another Pokestop there, and yet another Pokestop a mile in the opposite direction. I don't take it very seriously but it adds variety to my walks.
