Feeding Your Animals

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Hay Day
Last Updated:

to Feed your animals you need to build a Feed Mill. This will provide you with the resources required to keep them from getting hungry. You can find the Feed Mill in the Shop, under the second tab down, which houses the Production Buildings. The Feed Mill works in much the same way as any other Production Building - simply tap it, then drag the bag of feed into the central bucket to begin production.

You unlock the second Feed Mill at Level 12, at the same time as the second Chicken Coop. You should avoid the temptation to build the second Coop first because it is cheaper. You should make sure you have the facilities to feed your animals before buying them.

Purchasing the Feed Mill first will mean you are able to build up a stockpile or Feed, then get the Chickens and keep them well fed for a long time to come.

Use the Feed Mill to provide for your animals

Below you will see a list of the animal feed, and the composite parts required to create them:

Chicken Feed:

Production Time:5 Minutes

Ingredients: 2 Wheat, 1 Corn

Reward: 1 XP

Cow Feed:

Production Time: 10 Minutes

Ingredients: 1 Corn, 2 Soybeans

Reward: 2 XP

Pig Feed:

Production Time: 20 Minutes

Ingredients: 2 Carrots, 1 Soybean

Reward:2 XP

Sheep Feed:

Production Time: 30 Minutes

Ingredients: 3 Wheat, 1 Soybean

Reward: 3 XP

Goat Feed:

Production Time: 40 Minutes

Ingredients: 1 Wheat, 1 Corn, 2 Carrots

Reward: 3 XP

I am really running low on feed and I wish I could get more with my feed mill I only get 3 packets of feed and I have
5 chickens ! I used all my dimonds so I can't speed the mill up to get more! I always look in the newspaper to see who sells feed in their roadside shop but hardly any players do. PLEASE SELL MORE FEED. (Especially chicken and cow feed Smile

I am on 14. I did not buy the feed mill on 12. I did get the second chicken coop. I am now trying to purchase the feed mill but it will not let me. It keep saying I do not have the correct resources. I had 3000 coins. What do I need to do to get the second feed mill?

I did not buy my feed mill when 12 opened. I want to purchase it now in level 14. It keeps saying I need all resources. I had 3000 coins and it would not let me purchase the feed mill. How do I get the feed mill?

If I'm not mistaken, do your animals die if they go a long time hungry? I think I've lost some chicken that way. Or am I wrong?

Who came first the chicken or the egg?

The post says that one should buy a Mill before a Coop, i disagree and this is why.

Having a machine that is not operating 100% up time, is a loss of money, when producing for storage it is a loss of money.

What i would do, is to save up for both a Chicken Coop and a Feed Mill. while saving up, producing chicken food for storage so that the new Coop can function from start till the new mill have produced the first batch.

Within 3 hours one can produce and maintain 100% up time, on 5 cows and 6 chicks, with a surplus of 21xChicken feed and 3xCow Feed. So saving up for both a Chicken Coop and a Feed Mill, buying both at the same time, starting producing with 100% up time should be possible, with only a minimal storage disadvantage.

Just an idea!
