Sheep (Player-owned farm)

Sheep are livestock that can be raised and bred at the player-owned farm once unlocked at level 35 Farming. Their baby form can be purchased from Granny Potterington's Farmers' Market for 30 beans (after purchasing the deed to a medium pen), or for gold at any age from other players. Sheep produce wool, with the specific item varying based on their breed. For example, a black ewe will produce black wool.

There are 6 different breeds of sheep in addition to the shiny Golden ewe/ram. If a ewe and ram are bred during the day (between 09:00-21:00 game time), they will normally produce a white ewe or ram. If bred overnight (21:00-09:00), they will produce a black ewe or ram. A further four breeds are dependent on the farm's current season, which include the Springsheared ewe/ram, Fallfaced ewe/ram, Winterwold ewe/ram, and the Winterwold ewe/ram.

As a medium-sized animal, up to 8 sheep can be sold to Ralph (sheep hugger) every 2 days.

Of the livestock that can be purchased from the Farmers' Market, selling sheep at the adolescent stage yields the highest profit at a base rate of 50 beans per animal after just 24 minutes. This means that a player can earn around 400 beans every two days, not including any bonuses/penalties. If sold at their elder stage, a player can earn around 208 beans every two days, not including any bonuses/penalties.
