Sheep (Player-owned farm)
Sheep are livestock that can be raised and bred at the player-owned farm once unlocked at level 35 Farming, as well level 40 in Construction in order to build the medium pens. 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. Sheep can be placed in the two medium pens (capacity of four animals each) and in the breeding pen (capacity of four animals).
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, summerdown ewe/ram, fallfaced ewe/ram, and the winterwold ewe/ram.
Like all farm animals, they may have up to three traits, which determine their selling price in beans to non-player characters, among other effects, and can be sold on the Grand Exchange in their unchecked form. Once they have been checked, however they may only be traded directly between players or sold to Ralph, the sheep hugger. Eight can be sold each two 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.
