Default How do I add animals to my farm?

There are three ways to obtain animals. These are by purchasing them in the store, having them sent via the Free Gifts section by neighbours/friends and some can also be delivered by purchasing a freight train and the Long Cattle Car . The Long cattle car will deliver Cows, Goats, Hens, Turkeys and Horses and when the train is unloaded will be sent to your Item storage.

The animals in the store are available as and when you progress through the game, depending on your level.

Some animals are not available in the store and can be obtained by the presents/gifting system.

NOTE: Animals placed on the farm can not be sent to Item storage until you own more than one farm.

You can put your animals in enclosures or pens to prevent them from walking around a dispersing on your farm. Fences are available in "Fences" of the store.

Default What is the "eat" command in the menu that appears when I click on an animal?

This command allows you to feed your animals. For example, if you use it on a squirrel, he'll sit down and eat a nut.
This does not mean they will eat your crops, they are not programmed to do this, so don't worry!

Default How do I sell an animal?

To be able to sell animals you must have earned the Influential Neighbours Trophy. To earn that trophy you have to have 8 neighbours.

To sell an animal, just click it and select the command "Sell" from the menu that appears.
Please note that the selling price of an animal that you bought in the shop is less than the price at which you purchased.

To sell animals that are in your Item Storage.. .
  • Go to the market.
  • In the pop up click on "I want to sell my harvests or gifts",
  • then click "OK show me your prices".
  • Your Storage will open,
  • then click the Items tab, change the filter top right to "Animals" then click on "Sell" or "Sell Half" in the box next to each of the animals.

Default How do I take care of my animals?

To care for your animals you need one of these buildings:

Chicken Coop (Poultry)
This building allows you to collect the eggs of hens and geese, and the feathers from turkeys and peacocks to use in your facilities or you can sell them at market. You can collect the eggs and feathers daily. Note: It is the Hen, from gifts, that produces eggs not the yellow chicken in the store.

Super Chicken Coop (Poultry)
Same as above but you can collect twice a day.

Wool Shed
This new building allows you to collect the wool of sheep and llamas, to use in your facilities or you can sell at market. You can harvest once every two days.

Super Wool Shed
Same as above but you can collect once a day.


Dairy Shed (Dairy)
This building allows you to collect the milk of cows and goats, to use in your facilities or you can sell them at the market. You can collect them once every eight hours.

Super Dairy Shed (Dairy)
Same as above. The only difference is they hold twice as much.

Pigsty
This building allows you to collect manure from your pigs to fertilise your farms. You can collect once every 12 hours. Note: you cannot harvest pigs until you own a manure spreader as the manure harvested from pigs gets stored with the manure spreader. Manure can not be sold.

Rabbit Hutch
This building allows you to collect rabbit fleece from your White Rabbits available in store. You can collect once every 2 days. Note: It is the White Rabbit that produces rabbit fleece not the Bunny.

Super Rabbit Hutch
Same as above except collection is once daily

OR Horse stable
This building allows you to collect horse hairs from your brown horses and clydsdale horses , gifted from friends. You can collect once every 2 days.


Super Horse stable
Same as above collection time is every 8 hours.


Each regular animal building will hold 250 of each type of applicable animal. The super animal buildings will hold 500 of each type of applicable animal.

The buildings show the amount of time left until your next collection when you hover over them with your mouse.

Farm Cash animals produce 30 times more than the regular animal.
If you have a Farm Cash animal in a super animal building it will produce 60 times more.
The Super Animals are:
  • Leghorn Hen
  • Holstein Cow
  • Longwool Sheep
  • Heavywool Llama

Warning: depending on the capabilities of your computer, too many animals on your farm, that are not in animal sheds, can slow your game, cause a farm to be hard to open, or even crash your browser.

NOTE: If you own the Animal Harvesters and have made a farm a Quest Farm, the animals on that farm will not be harvested when you use the Harvest All at the top of the Facility Manager.

Default Can I place the animals in buildings?

Q: Can I place the animals in buildings?
A: Yes, animals can go into buildings. There are several ways to do this....




One by one........
  • Click on the animals and the menu now includes adding to building.


  • You will get a confirmation pop up to add the animal to the building.



Moving multiple Animals from farm to their buildings....
Click on the "Add to Animal to Building" Tool located in the Yellow Toolbox, then click the animals you want to store. Click on the green man to stop using the tool. There must be enough room in the animal building to house the animals. Maximum of 250 of each type for regular sheds, 500 of each type for super sheds.

To move animals in bulk from the farm to their buildings you can purchase the Herding Robot.

Animals received as gifts can be stored into their buildings straight from the gift box as long as there is enough room in the building of the farm you are on. Just click "Store".


Moving multiple Animals from Item Storage to their buildings....
You need to have enough space in the animal sheds on your farm to put them in.
  • Go to a farm that has animal sheds with space for animals.
  • Open your Item storage to "Animals"
  • Hover over the box with the animal in it that you want to store into the shed and you will see "Move".
  • Click "Move" and the animals will go into the appropriate shed. IF you have a lot of animals, it will store as many animals as you have room for in the shed.


There are 2 ways to see how many animals are in a building:

Method 1. When you don't have many animal buildings...
Click on the building and select "Show Animals Inside".



Then you can see the amount of animals.


Method 2. When you have many animal buildings on many farms...
You can tell at a glance how many animals are in an animal building by using the Facility Manager in your Tool Box. Open the Facility manager and click on the Funnel Icon and make sure you have the following selected. When you have made the changes to the Facility Filter click the green check mark to save.



Each animal shed will show you how many animals are in it. To save space the Farm Cash Animals are shortened to HT Cow (Holstein Cow), LH Hen (Leghorn Hen), HW Llama (Heavywool Llama) and LW Sheep (Longwool Sheep).

The following example shows a Super Chicken Coop on Farm 6, ready to harvest in 10.2 hours with 250 Hen, 100 Leghorn Hen, 250 Turkey, 250 Goose and 200 Peacocks.

If the animal shed is ready to harvest, instead of the time under the building you will see Ready to Harvest in green.

Which buildings do the animals go in?
  • Cows and goats go in the dairy shed.
  • Sheep and llamas go in the wool shed.
  • Hens, geese, turkeys and peacocks go in the chicken coop.
  • Pigs go in pigstys.
  • Horses, camels and donkeys go in the stables.
  • Dogs go in the Dog House.

Farm Cash animals produce 30 times more than the regular animal.
If you have a Farm Cash animal in a super animal building it will produce 60 times more.
The Super Animals are:
  • Leghorn Hen
  • Holstein Cow
  • Longwool Sheep
  • Heavywool Llama
The limit of each type of animal in each building is 250. So you can have 250 cows and 250 goats in the dairy shed.

The Super sheds will hold 500 of each animal.

Default Can animals go in the appropriate building if it's on another farm?

Yes.

If you have more than one farm, you can put the animal into storage and then take it out on the farm you wish. You can also buy or accept them as gifts and place them on the relevant farm.

You can send animals straight from your gift box to the animal shed on your farm as long as there is room in the building for it. Just open the gift box and click "Store" in the box with the animal in it.

If you have more than one type of working animal in your gift box and you have room in all the animal buildings on your farm you can store them all at once. Top right of the gift box you will see “Store Ingredients” just to the right of that is a small drop down arrow. Change it to "Store Animals", then click "Store Animals" again and all animals will be sent to their buildings.

As long as there is the appropriate animal shed on the farm and there is room in the animal shed you can add animals straight from your storage to the building. Go to the animal section of your Item storage, find the animal you wish to store then click "Move"

Default Can my employees take care of my animals?

No, you're the only one who can do this.

An easy way to Harvest all your animal sheds without having to go to each farm, is to use the Facility Manager. You can set it to just show you animal sheds on all farms and then harvest each one. It is also a quick way to find out how many animals you have in each shed and which farms they are on.

For a faster way to Harvest All animals in All sheds on All farms, with one click, from the Facility Manager, you can buy the Animal Harvesters.
