Same here. The Cottage Living eggs are the ones sims find on an egg hunt now instead of the decorative/collectible ones.
If it IS by design, then AT LEAST make finding the Cottage Living eggs during an egg hunt fulfill the Egg Hunt tradition, because as of now, it does not. There's currently no way to complete an egg hunt in the game because the tradition spawns a different kind of egg than is required to complete said tradition.
At the risk of stating the obvious, if you're going to change the type of eggs that spawn during an egg hunt, then you need to change the tradition fulfillment requirements to match that type of egg. Pro tip: Find/Replace works wonders when code needs to be updated in multiple places.
Fix this please.
EDIT: Confirmed. You cannot complete an egg hunt on a lot that has a chicken coop. (#Irony) If a coop is on the lot, the game spawns chicken eggs instead of decorative ones for the egg hunt. I sent my sims to visit another household that does not have a coop, and they were able to complete the egg hunt on that lot.
Without looking at the code, I'm guessing there's nothing to distinguish between egg types as it relates to spawning on lots. Spawn eggs always equals chicken eggs if there's a coop on the lot. Tag the decorative eggs needed to complete the egg hunt tradition with an identifier, then update the eggs in egg hunt requirements to include that same identifier.
I have same issue as well after Cottage Living pack installed when Sim is on their lot with chicken coop I get regular eggs of varying colors. I can travel to other lots in cottage living (ex. the bar) that do not have coops and find Easter Eggs that are for hunt tradition. Have not tried/tested in other worlds with lot that has chicken coop.
I own all packs except the kits. Also do not use any mods.

@BitterBubblyWell that's good to know that this problem only happens if you only have a chicken coop. Before I found this thread I thought that it was only a Henford on Bagley thing however it's still annoying either way. Hope they fix this soon!
Well, that's not something I would do. He's too cute! LOL! Anyway, I'm not so much interested in collecting them as I am just being able to complete the tradition! I sell them after I collect them every year on the holiday.

I'm on Xbox and same just happened to me, too. I originally thought they also found the collectible eggs but discovered they didn't since the tradition didn't complete.
Reading these other replies I'm guessing I'll have to go to the bar or something so I can complete the tradition. But hopefully they'll fix this to where both egg types can count towards the tradition.
