Chickens

Quick Facts
	Chickens are the fastest breeding, cheapest, and easiest to care for animals. Chickens have produce that sells the lowest, however if a Chicken wins the Chicken Festival, their special eggs (Golden, P, and X ) sell far higher than Regular Quality Eggs. So Chickens are worth having. The Mayo Maker makes an egg's sell price equivalent to that of Milk of the same size.

How to Care for Chickens

Feeding
Take one bushel of Chicken Feed from the Feed Bin Door and place it in a Feed Box for each chicken you have that isn't grazing.

Grazing
You can have your chickens graze outside only in good weather, not when it's snowing, raining, during a snowstorm,  or during a typhoon. They may be grazed in any season.

Breeding: Place an egg in the Incubator and in three days a Chick will hatch and seven more day until it becomes a full grown Chicken.

Other Info
If a Chicken is Sick or Unhappy, it won't lay any Eggs. To heal a Sick Chicken, use Animal Medicine on it. A Sick Chicken will die in a few days if not healed. Chickens live about 3 years. The Mayo Maker can be bought only after you expand your Chicken Coop.

How to Care for Cows

Feeding
Take one bushel of Fodder from the Feed Bin Door and place it in a Feed Box for each Cow you have that isn't grazing.

Grazing
You can have your Cows graze outside only in good weather, not when it's snowing, raining, during a snowstorm,  or during a typhoon. They may be grazed in any season but Winter. They must have full grown Farm Grass to eat if you want them to stay Healthy.

Breeding: Use a Cow Miracle Potion on Healthy Cow. A Calf will be born in about 21 days and will take another 21 days to grow up.

Other Info
If a Cow is Sick, pregnant, or Unhappy, it won't give any milk. To heal a Sick Cow, use Animal Medicine on it. A Sick Cow will die in a few dies if not healed. Cows live about 5 years. The Cheese Maker can be bought only after you expand your Barn. To milk them, you need to use the Milker.

How to Care for Sheep

Feeding
Take one bushel of Fodder from the Feed Bin Door and place it in a Feed Box for each Cow you have that isn't grazing.

Grazing
You can have your Cows graze outside only in good weather, not when it's snowing, raining, during a snowstorm,  or during a typhoon. They may be grazed in any season but Winter. They must have full grown Farm Grass to eat if you want them to stay Healthy.

Breeding: use a Sheep Miracle Potion on a Healthy, unshorned Sheep. A Lamb will be born 21 days later. Lambs take 2 weeks to grow up.

Other Info
If a Sheep is Sick or pregnant, it won't give any Wool. To heal a Sick Sheep, use Animal Medicine on it. A Sick Sheep will die in a few dies if not healed. Sheep live about 5 years. The Yarn Maker can be bought only after you expand your Barn. To shear them, you need to use the Clippers.

Harvest Sprites

	The easiest way to befriend the Harvest Sprites is to give them Flour or Honey. Once their affection is 3 (number of hearts) they will help you in one of three ways; harvest, water, or take care of your animals. They will be horrible at a job at first but will gradually become so good at it, they will be better than you at the job. The mini-games you can play with them are fun, but also train them for that job. I suggest you help them with their jobs at first so it gets done. They can do a job completely in a matter of hours of which you alone will take well into the next morning.

Note

	It took me about three days to type this up, a little bit may be a bit off, but that's because I typed this up mostly on memory, but it should be very accurate on the most part. However since this is so long I tried to put in hyperlinks but Supercheats only allows text documents not any other kind, so you will have to look by hand, sorry.
