List of DragonVale dragon incubation and Breeding Times

NOTE: If you’d like to see our full DragonVale Breeding Guide, click here.
So, every once in awhile you’ll set up two dragons to start breeding and get hit with a lengthy 20 or 24 hour breeding time, and you’ll want to know just what IS that dragon going to be when they’re done doing the nasty? Is it worth rushing it with gems? Well, here’s a quick list of the various breeding/incubation times for the various DragonVale dragons to help you out. Please note, these are the times for the STANDARD breeding caves, so if you have upgraded your Epic Breeding Island or Breeding Cave to speed up the breed times, multiply these times by 1.2 as those caves speed the breeding time up by 80%. (Although once you have an egg, these times WILL sync up with the incubation times if you cannot identify the egg you get). Some dragons share the same breeding times, so you’ll have to use your brain a bit and think about the elements you blended to know whether your 8-hour breed time is going to be a Blazing or a Ice dragon.

    I bred shimmer and nectar and got 42 hours, but that isn’t on the list. Does anyone know what it is?

  2. Leona says:

    Hello! I bred Light @ level 12 and Leather @ level 13, got a dragon with incubation/hatch time of 54 hours. The egg is a lovely deep blue with a turquoise aurora-type swirl through it. Not hatched yet. Any ideas what it is?
    Also, have had nice dragons from this combo so I stay on Re-try with the duo for more: Gamma, Rainbow, Glare, Spring (2), Flash and Glass, now this blue swirl one.
    Also, I’m using a Kindle but do not know how to add Friends to share gems, would be glad to, can you tell me how?
    Thank you so much for info.

    • Fluffy says:

      The blue swirl dragon egg is DEFINITELY an aurora dragon which is a rainbow type.

      I’m pretty sure that the only way to get friends is to be connected to Facebook on the game and whoever has dragonvale that is your friend on facebook will automatically appear if they have it and/or if they get it.

    • Mattyice says:

      Could be a galaxy. They always have a swirl

      • GalaxyLlama says:

        It couldn’t be a Galaxy dragon! Remember this list is old so if you do get one that’s not on the list, it’s a new dragon.
