Want great rewards for storing Prized Chickens? Then the Prized Chicken Coop is for you! Store up to nine Prized Chickens, feed them with half the Feed, plus get +25 feed capacity!
If you are level 6 or higher, you will see the following pop-up. Click on “Place Prized Chicken Coop” to get started.
Building the Prized Chicken Coop
Your first step is collecting construction parts. You will need the following items to start building your Prized Chicken Coop:
- Chicken Bedding
- Wood Plank
Click on the “Ask” button to send requests for the items to your Neighbors. You can also purchase any of these items above for Farm Bucks if you do not wish to wait for your friends to respond to your requests.
Note: You can send a request for materials to your Friends every 18 hours.
Once you have collected the required items, click on the “Start Building!” button at the bottom of the construction Menu.
Now that the Prized Chicken Coop is almost complete, you will need some help from your Neighbors to finish the job. The Prized Chicken Coop requires 4 mechanics, so click on the “Ask Friends” button to send crew requests to your Friends. When they accept, you will see the spots in the Build Menu begin to fill. If you do not wish to wait for your friends, click the “Hire One” button to purchase crew members with Farm Bucks. Once you have successfully filled all 4 spots, click on the “Finish & Share” button.
Using the Prized Chicken Coop
Click on the Prized Chicken Coop to open the main menu.
Inside the Prized Chicken Coop you will see nine placements that you can fill with Prized Chickens (nine Chickens total). Prized Chickens of the same breed will take up one spot each (see below: Ameraucana and Island Red Chickens).
Note: Rotate the Coop to view a different angle!
Adding & Removing Chickens:
To add Prized Chickens in the Coop, click on the green “Add Prized Chickens” button. A blue outline will highlight the ones available, then click, drag and drop one at a time over the coop. Note: The coop will also highlight in blue once the chicken can be placed inside.
To remove a Prized Chicken from the coop, open the main menu and click on the red “–“ (minus symbol) box on the bottom left hand corner of the placement slot (see below: A).
The chicken cards have symbols on them to indicate different things:A. Minus Symbol: Remove Chicken
B. Feed: How much Feed the Chicken will consume
C. Brown Eggs: How many Brown Eggs the Chicken will produce (see below: Feeding).
Each Prized Chicken stored in the Coop will eat half of the amount of Feed. For example, a Chicken that eats 8 Feed will eat 4 Feed when inside the Coop. Note: Any Prized Chicken that would normally eat an odd amount of feed outside of the Chicken Coop will be rounded up by one. For example, a chicken that would eat 9 Feed – when stored in the Chicken Coop will only need 5 Feed.
In addition, each Prized Chicken will produce Brown Eggs when fed, so look out for them after feeding!
- Once your Prized Chicken Coop is completed, you now have +25 Feed Capacity!
- Feed Chicken Coop (timer) will “pause” the time when placed in Storage, then resume once placed back on the farm.
- If you do not wish to use the Prized Chicken Coop feature, it can be sold (frame only) or stored in your Inventory.
- If you want to see how much time you have left to harvest, hover your cursor over the coop.
- You are limited to one Prized Chicken Coop per farm.
