Help please! Questions about chickens.

Postby kittyourock14 » Wed Feb 24, 2016 1:15 pm

Now I have a lot of money and I never used a coop in its entirety. I didn't understand how to. Now I have a getter idea. So I put hens and roostros together to make chickadoos. Now 1. Do those chickadoos grow into chickens? 2. Is there a limit as to how many chickens and roostro can be in one coop?
Why isn't there a Harry Potter slime? </3

1. Chickadoos will grow into Hen Hens of their type (Normal, Stony, Briar) or a Roostro rarely.
2. There is a limit that if you keep more than 12 chickens and roostros in a coop, their egg production will be halved so keep an eye on their amounts.

Another question! I am looking at my coop and I see an elder chicken! How did that appear?

3. If a Hen or Roostro are kept for too long, they get older. It takes them idk, 5-10 days in the game.
Both of the elder chickens are useless, since Elder Hen won't provide you eggs, and Elder Roostro won't help with doing them.

I was wondering, does having more Roostros in one coop yield more Chickadoos every day, or is only one Roostro necessary?

Not certain, but I believe that a hen hen will produce eggs at a constant rate as long as their is a roostro in their radius, which would imply that the amount of roostros makes no difference.

As correctly mentioned there is a limit in coops, which makes me wonder how many just free-range instead for better production.

The lack of a cap can be a curse as well as a blessing. I let chickens breed wild on the ranch for too long without having anything to feed them to. It took me a while to realize why the game was slowing down every time I came back to the ranch. ...because I had almost 200 chickens.

I created a new silo out of desperation -- 50+ stony hens, 25+ briars, 10+ roostros and I have no idea how many henhens. Now I keep a much closer tab on the population, but it can get out of hand!

That would explain why when i had 2 roosteros (i probably spelt that wrong) in one coop they became elders in a slower rate compared to when i only had 1 in that same coop.

Currently, chickens age as they sire offspring. So the more pressure being put on a single hen or roostro to make babies, the higher chance they're become an elder.

It takes about six eggs for a Hen to become an elder.

Roostros can sire three times as many chickadoos (that's eighteen) before becoming elders.

Correction: There is a limit that if you keep more than 12 chickens and roostros in a coop, their egg production will stop.

50+?

Try 400 Briar hens, 316 Stony Hens, 100 Briar Chickadoos, and 378 Roostros!

I find that more than one roostro increases chicken production by a lot.

I'm no chicken whisperer, but I think maybe chickens become Elders when they get "all worn out", so to speak. I mean, I once chucked a Roostro into the Overgrowth to see what would happen, came back an in-game day later, it was an Elder.

What more Roostros exactly do is lessening chances that one will get old.

I thought it was based on time relative to that situation.

Nick wrote:[...] the higher chance they're become an elder.

What about that lower chance of not?

I'm not even going to complain about that wording, so long as this exists.
