    0.0 The Introduction
    Okay.This guide is to tell you all about Animals and Crops on
    Harvest Moon DS!I will be adding to it very often. If you would like
    to know why I made this guide, here it is: There are Building Guides,
    Harvest Sprite Guides, Cooking Guides, and even Basement Guides, but
    nothing contain the two most important factors in Harvest Moon DS!
    So I decide to make a guide covering Animals and Crops. I hope you
    like it! Plus, I will be adding new stuff all the time, so check back.
    0.1	Legal Stuff
    This guide may be used outside of GameFAQs on the following terms:
    1.This guide may be used only if you give me (WolfFlame) proper credit
    if you quote this or use any part of it.
    2.You DO NOT ASK me, unless it is via Gamefaq's message board.
    3.You include my list of Thank Yous if you use more than 25% of this
    Thank You!
    0.2 FAQs
    This will be added to later on. Here is what I have so far:
    Q. Why can't I buy a Duck from Poultry Farm?
    A. Before you can buy a Duck, you must have a Duck Pond. To obtain a
    Duck Pond, call Gotz and select Pond. For further information about
    the Duck Pond, please read GameMage911's Building FAQ on GameFAQs.
    Q. I bought a Silo and some Animal Fodder. But, I can't take it out of
    the Silo!
    A. Inside the Animal Shed is a red box (it hangs on the back-right
    wall) press it to take out the Animal Fodder. Press again to put the
    fodder back.
    Q. How do I feed my Horse/Dog/Cat?
    A. You don't need to! They are magic animals that don't need to eat!
    (But, seriously, you don't have to feed them.)
    Q. Where do I buy a Horse?
    A. You don't need to! If you ship 1,000 items, you get it the next
    Q. I put 4 pieces of Chicken Food for my Chicken, and the next day it
    was gone! What happened?
    A. Chicken Food automatically disappears in the morning, even if not
    0.3	Thank Yous
    First, I would like to thank Marvelous/ Natsume /Rising Star
    (depending on where you live) and Nintendo for creating this wonderful
    series! Second, I would like to thank all my friends who contributed
    information to this account. Last, but definitely not least, I would
    like to thank my friend (who chose to be anonymous) for telling me
    what she did on Harvest Moon everyday, and listen to me while I told
    her. :D
    0.4	Animals Versus Crops
    I thought here I would list some of the pros and cons of animals and
    crops.It is best to farm as much as you can, but if you are stretched
    for time or space, this may help you decide what to do:
    Last for several years
    Give produce almost everyday
    Cute companions
    Can enter in Contests
    Must feed everyday
    Require lots of care
    The Sheds they live in can cost a bit at first, and take up valuable
    Don't eat
    Take up little room
    Can be planted in many areas around town
    Wide variety
    Many are worth good amounts of gold once they are leveled up
    Need to be water on all sunny days
    Can't grow in Winter
    No Contests (except for the Cooking Contest, but that is different)
    0.5	Coming Next
    I will finish what I have right now. Namely, the price guide and crop
    calculator. I am adding to the crop section, however, and a bit of the
    animal section. Goal for this stuff: February.

    1.0	Animal Introduction
    Now it's time to talk about animals! There are many types of animal,
    and they all do different things! If you are just starting out, I
    recommend getting a Chicken, then using its' eggs to make more
    Chickens for free! (Info on how in the Chicken section). PLEASE
    1.1 Animal Food and Sheds
    Okay, here are the basics. Chickens and Ducks live in Bird Sheds. Cows
    and Sheep live in Animal Sheds.Four animals can fit in each shed. It
    can be any combination as long as it can live in that shed. e.i. two
    Ducks and two Chickens is okay in a Bird Shed; but don't have a Duck,
    a Sheep, and two Cows in a Animal Shed! Also, after you get the horse,
    it lives in the Stable next to your house; it never has to go inside
    if you don't want. The Dog and Cat don't have to go inside, but they
    can live anywhere. (If you put them in a Bird or Animal Shed, the
    animals in the shed may become unhappy).
    Also, animals (except for the Horse, Dog, and Cat) need to eat!
    Animals that live in Bird Houses need to eat Bird Feed. It
    automatically goes into the red box in the back of the shed. Press the
    A button to take a stack of Bird Feed out, put it in the brown boxes,
    then press A next to it again to put the rest of it back. For Animal
    Barn animals, it is a bit trickier. First, you need a Silo. This is
    where the food is stored. Thou use the same concept to feed your
    Animal Shed animals as your Bird Shed animals. Plus, animal food is
    called animal fodder. Also, if you plant grass seeds outside, Cows and
    Sheep will eat the mature grass, or you can cut it and it turns to
    fodder. Chickens and Ducks will find their own food if left outside
    for a couple hours. This is great if you are low on food! And
    Here is a simple diagram:
    Chicken\                             Cow\
            Bird Shed and Bird Feed          Animal Shed and Animal Fodder
       Duck/                           Sheep/
    1.2 Animal Happiness
    The #1 rule about animals, keep them happy! To keep animals happy here
    is what you need to do:
    Ducks and Chickens:
    Pick them up once a day
    Put them out side on sunny days
    Feed them or put them outside
    Give them medicine when they are sick
    Cows and Sheep:
    Talk to/Pet using Touch Screen/Brush everyday
    Put outside on sunny days
    Feed them or put them outside with some mature grass
    Give them medicine when they are sick
    Milk/Shear them everyday (I'm going to leave which one needs which up
    to you).
    Horse/Dog/Cat Please note these animals do not need to be kept happy,
    but this will raise their love points for you
    Brush/Talk to/Ride your Horse each day
    Pet them all (Horse needs to use the Touch Screen)
    Put them outside on sunny days
    Animal Happiness is important for these four reasons:
    1. An animal that is unhappy for 2-3 days becomes sick, and if not
    healed by (1000G) medicine in a few days (still unconfirmed amount)
    they will die!
    2. The happier an animal is, the more its love points go up.
    3. The more love points an animal has the large produce it creates. e.i
    a cow with max love points gives large milk while one with low love
    points gives small milk. And, the bigger it is, the higher amount of
    gold it ships for.
    4. Unhappy animals do not create produce. e.i an unhappy chicken lays
    no eggs.
    If you do the things to make an animal happy listed above inside if
    possible, no game time will pass, so try to do as much as possible
    1.3 The Touch Screen and Animals
    The DS's Touch Screen has revolutionized RPG (role-playing-
    game)farming. You can know buy the Touch Glove accessory from Popuri at
    Poultry Farm. It only costs 1000G. If you put it into the blue slot of
    your Rusack, then press the A button next to an animal, any animal on
    your farm, to pet it. It opens a mini-game on the touch screen. Simply
    rub the animal very quickly with the stylus to pet it! Each animal has
    its own spots that it likes or dislike to be pet. Try to get a higher
    score, which increases more love points. Your high score goes onto your
    Farm Info page, too. Also, if you hold the brush and Touch Glove, then
    you the brush, you unlock the same thing. The only difference is the
    petting game is set for 10.00 seconds, but the brushing can go on as
    long as you want! And you get bubbles, too. The same works for the
    Sheers and Milker. (I will tell you more about these soon.)
    1.4 Dog
    Price: Free with Farm
    Produce/Purpose: Chases wild dogs off your farm at night, which keeps
    your animals safe and happy. * You have to train the dog using the
    ball, first.
    Lives: The Dog can really sleep anywhere. If he sleeps in a Bird or
    Animal Barn, he could cause the other animals in the barn to become
    unhappy. I suggest he lives in your house or the Stable.
    Life Expectancy: The Dog lives forever.
    Eats: Nothing
    Festival Info: None
    Growth and Birth: None
    Cautions: The Dog can be trapped in your walls, under your
    refrigerator, under the table, or a few other places. If you order a
    new house item, or are rebuilding your house, put your Dog outside
    until the item has come or the remodel is over.
    Glitches: If you have the Ghost Town Glitch, which is when everyone in
    town disappears and the doors are locked, simply throw the Dog's ball
    into the water. The mayor will come in a few days to return the ball,
    and everyone else will return.
    1.5 Cat
    Price: Free with Farm
    Produce/Purpose: It has no purpose at first glance, but it does have a
    purpose. It has a cute picture when pet. Also, when you pet it, you get
    points on your invisible Farm Degree.
    Lives: The Cat can really live anywhere. It is still unconfirmed if the
    Cat makes animals it sleeps with unhappy.
    Life Expectancy: The Cat lives forever.
    Eats: Nothing.
    Festival Info: None
    Growth and Birth: None
    Cautions: The Cat can be trapped in your walls, under your
    refrigerator, under the table, or a few other places. If you order a
    new house item, or are rebuilding your house, put your Cat outside
    until the item has come or the remodel is over.
    Glitches: No glitches involving the Cat have been discovered yet.
    1.6 Horse
    Price: Free. Takakura gives you the Horse after you ship 1000 items. He
    will tell you he found it and has no room on his farm for it. (He lives
    on YOUR farm!)
    Produce/Purpose: You can ride it faster than you can walk. You can ship
    items by putting them in the Horse's Saddlebags.
    Lives: The Horse lives in the Stable, which is on your farm when you
    Life Expectancy: The Horse lives forever.
    Eats: Your Chickens. Just kidding! He doesn't eat.
    Festival Info: None.
    Growth and Birth: None
    Cautions: If you dismount your Horse, he immediately starts to wander.
    He can be hard to catch up with, or find, so keep an eye on him.
    Glitches: Infinite "Cow" Milk:
    Use your Brush. Halfway, through, drag the Milker over the Brush and
    your start to Milk your Horse. So far, the Milk I have gotten has been
    level 1,3, or 4. You can sell it just like Cow Milk. * Shifty Eyes *
    and no one will ever tell the difference. Heh Heh Heh.
    1.7 Cattle (Cows)
    Price: 5000G for Cow 3500G for Cow Miracle Potion
    Produce/Purpose: Milk. You get Small Milk by using the Milker alone, or
    get bigger Milk using the Touch Glove and Milker.
    Lives: In the Animal Shed.
    Life Expectancy: Cows live for around 5-7 years.
    Eats: Animal Fodder. If put outside with mature Grass, they will only
    need to eat that, instead.
    Festival Info: The Cow Festival is on Summer 20. To win, your Cow must
    have 9 or 10 hearts. That means it must have almost max love points. A
    Cow can only enter a contest if it is the Cow's first time, it is not
    pregnant, and is happy. If the Cow wins, it goes up a level. It is
    still unconfirmed if a higher level means that you get more Milk using
    only the Milker.
    Growth and Birth: A Cow becomes pregnant if you give it a Cow Miracle
    Potion. It will be pregnant for about 21 days. During this time, it
    cannot leave the Barn, and has to be feed everyday. Only one animal can
    be pregnant at once in an Animal Shed, but if you have to Sheds, one
    can be pregnant in each one. When a Calf is born, it will be the level
    of its parent and have 2 hearts. After about 1-2 weeks, the Calf
    becomes a Young Cow. On the Touch Screen, the Young Cow will be smaller
    than a Cow, and has no Udders. After about another 1 week or so, it
    will be an adult. Also, the Calf has a 75% chance of being the color of
    the parent.
    Cautions: As long as you don't do anything to upset the Cow, it should
    be fine.
    Glitches: No glitches involving the Cow have been discovered.
    1.8 Sheep
    Price: 4000G for Sheep 3000G for Sheep Miracle Potion
    Produce/Purpose: Wool. You get Small Wool by using the Shears alone.
    You can get up to 4 pieces of Small Wool per Sheep this way. OR, you
    can use the Shears and Touch Glove to get bigger Wool. (Up to a Large
    and two Smalls a Sheep. Wool grows only every 7-8 days.
    Lives: In the Animal Shed.
    Life Expectancy: Sheep live for around 3-5 years.
    Eats: Animal Fodder. If put outside with mature Grass, it will eat
    that, instead.
    Festival Info: The Sheep Festival is on Fall 21. To win, your Sheep has
    to have 9-10 hearts. That means almost max love points. A Sheep can
    enter if it is its first time, is happy, not pregnant, and has all of
    its Wool. If it wins, it goes up a level.
    Growth and Birth: A Sheep becomes pregnant if you give it a Sheep
    Miracle Potion. It can be used on happy, adult Sheep that have all
    their Wool. The Sheep will then be pregnant for about 21 days. During
    this time, it will not be able to go outside, and needs food and care
    everyday. Then, a baby Sheep will be born! I don't yet know its life
    stages, but I will very soon!
    Cautions: As long as you do nothing to upset the Sheep, it will be
    Glitches: Infinite Sheep Wool:
    1. Rub between the Sheep's legs until S appears in the box. Quit.
    2. Rub the Sheep's head and the area around the Sheep's head until it
    says S again. Quit again.
    3. Rub around the Sheep's tail until you see the S again. Quit again.
    4. Rub the Wool in the middle of the Sheep until you see the S again.
    Quit again.
    5. Now, the Wool between the legs is back, and the Wool on the back
    legs is gone! Rub off the Wool between the legs again. Quit again.
    6. Rub the Wool off the middle of the Sheep until it reaches S again.
    Quit again.
    7. The middle Wool and leg Wool is back! Rub off the Wool between the
    legs again.
    8. Return to step 4 and repeat!
    Remember, you should do this inside to keep time from passing. And, you
    can eat whenever you want, and return to where you left off.
    1.9 Chickens
    Price: 1000G
    Produce/Purpose: Eggs.
    Lives: In the Bird Shed.
    Life Expectancy: Chickens live for about 1-3 years.
    Eats: Bird Feed. If left outside for a few hours, it will find its own
    Festival Info: The Chicken Festival is on Summer 7. Any happy adult
    Chicken can enter, as long as this is its first time. To win, it needs
    to have 9 to 10 hearts, meaning almost max love points. If it does win,
    it goes up a level.
    Growth and Birth: It doesn't take much to have a new Chicken. Simply
    put a Chicken Egg in the Incubator, located on the left wall of your
    Bird Shed. In 3 days, the egg will hatch into a Chick. The Chick will
    be the level of its parent, and have 2 hearts. It won't need to eat,
    either. After 7 days, it will become an Adult Chicken and lay eggs. If
    you are trying to get a leveled up Chicken, but can't tell whose egg is
    whose, follow these steps:
    1. Walk into the Shed.
    2. Pick one Chicken; remember which egg it is sitting on.
    3. Look in your Rucksack, is it the Chicken you were looking for?
    4. If it is, put the egg it was sitting on in the Incubator. If not,
    try again tomorrow!
    Cautions: Just keep your little Chickens happy and they'll be fine.
    Glitches: There are no glitches involving Chickens.
    1.10 Ducks
    Price: 1500G (Must have the Duck Pond)
    Produce/Purpose: Eggs. *Ducks' Eggs are worth more than Chicken Eggs,
    but are only laid every other day.
    Lives: In the Bird Shed.
    Life Expectancy: Ducks live for 2-4 years.
    Eats: Ducks eat Bird Feed. If left outside, they find their own food
    within a few hours.
    Festival Info: The Duck Festival is held on Spring 18 every year. To
    enter, a Duck has to never have entered before, be happy, and be an
    adult. To win, it needs to have 9-10 hearts, which is near max love
    points. If it wins, it gains a level.
    Growth and Birth: To hatch an adorable baby ducky, just put a Duck egg
    in the Incubator located on the left side of the Bird Shed. In 3 days,
    it hatches into a cute gray puffball. In 7 more days, it grows into an
    adult Duck. A Duck born on your farm will be born at the level of its
    parent, and have 2 hearts. It insure that you hatch an egg from the
    correct Duck, follow these directions:
    1. Walk into the Shed.
    2. Pick one Duck; remember which egg it is sitting on.
    3. Look in your Rucksack, is it the Duck you wanted?
    4. If so, put the egg it was on in the Incubator; if not, try again
    1.11 Recommendations
    Starting the game:
    Buy 1 Chicken. Incubate the eggs until you have 4. Then, buy more
    Cow and Sheep Miracle Potions:
    For Cows, unless you are leveling up your Cows, I would just buy
    another Cow. Because, the money it costs to feed it is more than the
    money you save on the Potion. Plus, you get no Milk during that time.
    For Sheep, it can go either way. You don't save any money, but you only
    lose 2-3 Wool-clipping sessions.
    Put Lumber around your Animal and Bird Shed. Make sure it goes all the
    way around. This will keep your animals from wandering around your
    farm, cutting the time it takes to put them inside down considerably.
    Make sure that Cows and Sheep can reach mature Grass, and that Ducks
    can reach their Pond.
    Duck Pond:
    I would recommend getting the Duck Pond during year 2 or 3. During
    Winter is the best time, as you are not very busy. I would have the
    Orange Harvest Sprite team gather the amount of Stone (600) you need.
    Then, call Gotz and have him build it to you for 100,000G. You're Ducks
    will be happiest if they have access to the Pond, so put it in their

    2.0	Introduction for Crops
    Crops are very important on your farm. All they require is daily
    watering, and Tadaaaaa! You have crops! Just read the info about the
    type of crop you want. Please note this will not be organized like the
    animal section, as plants are different than animals, obviously.
    2.1 Watering
    You have to water crops everyday. There are two exceptions:
    1. When it rains
    2. A tree once it is in sapling stage.
    To fill your Watering Can, just go up to any water, even the Duck Pond,
    and use the can. It will fill up. To water, just use it next to
    unwatered, tilled land. You can also hire the Light Blue Harvest
    Sprites to water every square of tilled land, including those with
    crops on them. The squares must be in the areas you hired them to work
    in, and must be outside. That's it for watering, pretty easy, huh?
    2.1 Ground Crops
    These are the crops you grow outside and on your field. Some examples
    would be potatoes or strawberries. They grow in different stages until
    they grow the produce. Some disappear once you pick them, but some
    return to a certain stage, and then continue growing. These crops will
    need to be watered everyday, unless it is raining. The Light Blue
    Harvest Sprites can be hired to water these for you. These are the most
    common type of crops. Also, you start out with a couple bags of Turnip
    Seeds, plant them immediately, they will be one of your main income
    sources at the very beginning of the game.
    Planting: Till a 3x3 square of land. Stand in the middle, and then use
    the Seed Bag.
    Purchasing: These can be bought from the Supermarket, Vesta, or the
    Harvest Sprites. Each sell different ones. They all cost different
    2.3 Trees
    Trees are my personal favorite crop. You start out with one Peach Tree
    in the middle of your farm. This is what a mature Tree looks like.
    Trees also stay where they are planted forever, unless you cut them
    down. Trees go through many stages:
    1. Seeds in the ground. You have to water these.
    2. Sapling. You won't have to water these.
    3 and 4. Middle tree. You don't have to water these, they look almost
    grown up.
    5. Mature tree. Bears fruit. Doesn't need water.
    A mature Tree will have flowers on it the season before it bears fruit.
    Then, it will have one fruit on it. Pick the fruit. After a few days,
    the fruit will grow back. Here are the grow times for each type of
    tree: (Please keep in mind that treed go dormant in Winter, and stop
    Banana: 40 Days
    Orange: 43 Days
    Apple: 52 Days
    Grape: 58 Days
    Peach: 58 Days
    Planting: Till a 2x2 space of land. Stand in the upper left corner. Use
    the bag of seeds. You will only have to water it until it becomes a
    Purchasing: These can be bought only from Vesta. They cost in the low
    thousands of Gold.
    2.4 Basement Crops:
    Basement Crops are very similar to ground crops. Here are the
    They are underground, in your basement.
    They can be grown any season.
    They need daily watering.
    They can't be watered by Sprites.
    The Basements also are different than normal land. First off, you will
    need the third Mine. In the floors ending in 1,2,3 and 4, you can find
    the Seasonal Suns. You will need 1 of those for each floor of your
    Basement. (You can have three floors). Okay, lets say you find a Fall
    Sun. Ask Gotz to build you a Basement. (You must have your House
    upgraded first) Then, when it is done, put the Fall Sun in the Sun
    Holder. Now, you can plant any Fall crops on this floor!
    Things to remember: These need daily watering. If one Basement
    collapses, so do the ones under it. If a Sun is removed, the crops on
    that floor die. Suns can be switched at any time. On the third Basement
    is a water patch for filling your watering can.
    Planting: The same as Ground Crops.
    Purchasing: Use the same seeds as Ground Crops.
    2.5 Mushrooms
    You can even plant Mushrooms! Here are the steps:
    1. By a Maker Shed and a Mushroom Shed.
    2. Find Mushrooms in the wild or buy Shiitake seeds from Vesta.
    3. Put the Mushrooms in the Seed Maker. (Well, you have to buy that for
    the Maker Shed first.)
    4. Put a piece of Lumber on one of the pallets in the Mushroom Shed.
    5. Sow the Mushroom Seeds on the Lumber.
    6. Water everyday.
    7. Harvest after a while.
    The longer you leave the Mushrooms, the bigger they grow! To get rid of
    a Mushroom, just Hammer the Lumber. You have 6 pallets in the Shed,
    too. Here are the grow times for the three Mushrooms:
    Shiitake: 35 days for Small
    Matsutake: 59 days for Small
    Toadstool: 42 days for Small
    2.6 The Different Fields
    There are several different Fields. They all have different growth
    Slow Growth: The fields in the main part of the Valley, the fields by
    Turtle Pond, and the Circus Grounds
    Normal Growth: Your Farm and Basements
    Fast Growth: The Goddess Pond and Mine Fields (heh heh)
    Super Growth: Hidden Field behind the Waterfall. Use the Legendary
    Sword to break the rock blocking your way. It is in a cave, so you must
    water every day
    Slow Growth will slow down the growth of crops by a day or two.
    Normal Growth is just the normal growth time.
    Fast Growth will speed the grow time by one day.
    Super Growth will speed it up by two days.
    Please note that the regrowth time is the same, just the original
    growing time changes. The only exception seems to be Sweet Potatoes.
    2.7 Leveling Up Crops
    What you need:
    A Maker Shed with Seed Maker
    Watering Can
    Two bags of Seeds
    First, plant the two bags of seeds on top of each other. Water them
    every day until they mature. Harvest them. Some will be level 1, and
    some will be level 2. To check, look at them in the Rucksack. Sell all
    the level 1 crops. Then, put the level 2 crops in the Seed Maker. Plant
    the level two crops over each other like with the originals. Lather,
    Rinse, and Repeat. Seeds can go up to level 100, and their price goes
    up the higher level they are.
    You will also need Mythic or higher Axe
    First, plant two bags of seeds on top of each other. Water the tree
    until it becomes a sapling. When it matures, pick fruit. Turn the first
    2 into seeds, as long as they are level 2, plant them over each other.
    Let the other tree live the rest of the season, so you can sell its
    fruit, or you can use it in recipes. Repeat.
    2.8 Giant Crops
    Ground Crops have an additional feature. Giant Crops! There is a random
    1 in 255 chance of a crop becoming Giant. Since you can't pick it
    yourself, because it is four times the size of a normal crop, Thomas
    and some Sprites from Mineral Town pick it for you. It sells for 10
    times the normal price. If you want to get a giant crop, but aren't
    have any luck, save the night before crops mature, and keep reloading
    until you have a Giant Crop.
    2.9 Recommendations
    Starting your Game:
    Immediately plant the seeds you start with, and then grow those. Mine
    until you can afford a Chicken and Bird Barn.
    Cows and Sheep:
    Plant grass seeds before you buy your Cow or Sheep, so the Fodder will
    be ready when you first get the animal.
    Plant Trees on a large field you aren't using for Crops. I like to use
    the Mine Fields, because I don't use them often, and Trees take a long
    time to grow.
