Growth stages

Jump to: navigation, search

Animals at the player-owned farms go through various growth stages. For animals at the Manor Farm, there are typically four growth stages: child, adolescent, adult, and elder. Some animals (chickens, spiders, and dragons) start out as eggs and therefore have five stages instead of four. At the Anachronia Dinosaur Farm, all animals have five growth stages: egg, child, adolescent, adult, and elder.

Each stage takes a certain length of time and will advance if the animal is in the pen, even if the player is logged out. Animals will not advance growth stages while in the inventory or bank. New animals may be born when the player is away from the farm or is not logged in. The first stage is either "child" or "egg". The animals won't start growing until the first time the player visits their farm (or log back in on the farm) after the animal was born, when receiving the message: The animals in your breeding pen have given birth to a healthy child. After their first visit, the animals can grow through all the growth stages without a need to return to the farm again. Animals do not need to be fed to grow.

Selling prices[edit | edit source]

The stage of an animal affects the standard selling price of that animal. These tables display an animal's growth stage and its standard selling price, not taking into account the buyers' preferences, the master farmer outfit bonus, or the bonus from the Grandmaster Farmer.

Animals in the adolescent stage sell for the most, and all other prices are percentages of that amount.

Gathered produce[edit | edit source]

At each stage of growth, a player can gather for items and Farming experience. Produce can only be collected once per growth stage. Animals growing from egg to child stage (chickens, spiders, dragons, and all the animals on the Anachronia Dinosaur Farm) award experience, but not produce. The POF produce icon.png icon is displayed over each animal when this has grown a stage and has produce to be gathered if the upgrade has been purchased from the Farmers' Market and then toggled on via Granny Potterington.
