Chicken/Silkie questions.

#1TerronegaPosted 11/5/2012 7:28:58 AM
I'm wondering how chicken birth works this time around. Is there an incubator that I can just dump an egg in it and wait for a few days or is it something lame like giving your chickens away to someone for a few days?

Also, if there is an incubator, would be worth to get a silkie egg from someone as soon as trades are unlocked and start raising my own? I'm not sure if there were any price differences between the different chicken eggs, before.

The chicken coop comes with an incubator. Getting a Silkie egg from someone on wi fi is better than having to wait til you unlock them, imo.

Finding someone is the hard part. It isn't hard to get 10 eggs to hatch and sell them to get to silkies.

But it doesn't specify what type of chicken eggs count to unlock silkies, does it? So I could still hatch 10 silkies to unlock more silkies that way. Not that this information would be that useful to know if I had silkies beforehand, so its more of a curiosity, really.

I guess it all depends on how likely one would be able to hatch 10 eggs before trades are unlocked.

Considering you have to build the coop first (your farm does not come with one) and Rebecca - the one you buy blueprints from to make it - doesn't move in until around the end of spring (about the same time multiplayer opens up), it would be pretty impossible to hatch 10 eggs before unlocking multiplayer.

..Hope that made sense XD


Anyway, it's more worth it to find someone with a Silkie egg willing to trade it, imo.

That is just what I needed to hear, thank you.

I will have to find someone to hold onto an egg for me until I get the game.
