This is the exact same word for egg as in German, except in German it's pronounced like the English letter "I". Am I correct that it's pronounced like the letter "A", in Dutch?

The exact ei sound doesn't exist in English. You can find examples of the correct pronunciation here: http://www.heardutchhere.net/DutchPronunciation.html#EI
