Introducing...the Butterfly Feeder! This colorful new feature will allow you to unlock special rewards for harvesting Flowers from Fields. Once you have collected all four prizes, you will win the Anise Crop Packet and extra Favors!
If you are level 25 or higher, you will see the following pop-up. Click on the “Place Butterfly Feeder” button to get started.
Before you can earn the special prizes, you will need to build your Butterfly Feeder. Your first step is collecting Building Materials. You will need the following items to start building your Feeder:
- Butterfly Bedding
- Butterfly Posts
- Butterfly Paper
To collect Butterfly Bedding, click on the “Post” button to post to your Facebook wall; you will get the parts when your friends click on it, or when you click on a similar newsfeed post.
Click on the “Ask” button to send requests for Butterfly Posts and Butterfly Paper to your Neighbors. If you do not wish to wait for your Friends, you can skip any of these tasks for Farm Bucks.
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 your Butterfly Feeder is almost complete, you will need to hire Friends to help you finish the job. The Butterfly Feeder requires four additional helpers, so click on the “Ask Friends” button to send some crew requests to your Friends. When they accept, you will see the spots in the Building Menu begin to fill. If you do not wish to wait for your friends, click on the “Hire One” button to purchase crew members with Farm Bucks. Once you have successfully filled all four spots, click on the “Finish Building” button.
Using the Butterfly Feeder:
The Butterfly Feeder feature has four stages. Each stage requires a certain amount of Flowers harvested from Fields. When you harvest Flowers from your fields, they will fill your Flower bar. Once your bar is full, you can harvest the Butterfly Feeder.
To see your bar, click on the Butterfly Feeder to open the main menu. Your bar is located on the bottom of this screen. The number at the bottom of the bar indicates how many harvested Flowers you need and your current progress towards this goal.
As you complete each stage you will unlock a new prize. The stages and respective prizes are as follows:
- Stage 1: Set of 5 Pinwheels
- Stage 2: Set of 5 Elaborate Pinwheels
- Stage 3: Set of 2 Butterfly Planters
- Stage 4: Set of 2 Elaborate Butterfly Planters
Once you have harvested enough Flowers, you will be able to harvest your Clipboard by clicking on it.
The more Fields you have on the farm and the more Fertilizer you use, the faster you fill your bar.
If you do not want to wait to fill the Flower bar, you can use Farm Bucks to skip these steps and get the next prize right away!
