FarmVille Stuffing and Breeding Guide
Stuffing is a time and click intensive chore which, when done correctly, can bring you AND your neighbors great rewards!
As of November, FarmVille Breeding has changed! There is now much less clicking to do!
1. have a Full building
2. remove 1 animal
3. put in 1 ready animal
5. share and repeat!
Go experiment with it and enjoy :)
**See below for tips, charts, and ideas regarding individual buildings**
Chicken Coop – See the Mystery Egg Chart for best chickens to keep in your coop. Stuffing will allow you to get a mystery egg if your previous harvest came up with only a coin bonus. Continuing stuffing after getting an egg within the last 24 hours will provide you with harvest coins and feeding bonus, but no more eggs to share (exception: sometimes there is a glitch that allows you to find multiple eggs per day to share).
Horse Stable – See the Stable Stuffing Guide for a video and step by step instructions. If you have a permanent stallion, you can stuff the stable to find and share multiple foals and consumables per day. If you don't have a stallion, you will need to find a wandering one the feed between stuffs if you want a chance at a foal.
Remember that Horses on your farm take 2-3 days to become fully ready, but in the Stable can be harvested daily. Use this knowledge to realize that putting in a horse at 34% will generally make the Stable ready and allow for stuffing/ breeding.
Note: The 'stallion is grateful for your kindness' bonus only counts once every 24 hours, additional bonuses will be removed when you reload the game.
Nursery Barn – See Nursery Breeding Chart to choose which babies will grow up into your desired adult. You can use the nursery to provide more babies for your friends, and use the adults as 'Seeders' for stuffing the Stable and Dairy. Adult animals bred in the nursery sell for 400 coins (except chocolate cow). The nursery is the only building that will not give you a popup after each harvest. Wait a bit to see if you get anything, then re-stuff and try again.
Note: The baby animal will RARELY grow into the mother of the same breed. Be sure you check the Nursery Breeding Chart before you put rare animals in there as they might grow up and be lost forever!
Dairy Farm – See Cow Chart for best seeders and breeders. See Dairy Stuffing Guide for more information! Once you get to level 75, focus on stuffing with the Belted Cow; it is the best way to make money in the game! Start by using bulls and high harvest cows as seeders until you have enough to start using Belted Cows as seeders and filling your dairy completely. You will level up very quickly if you keep buying Belted Cows and stuffing with them.
You must have a Bull in your Dairy if you wish to find a calf to share. Dairy Farms will be ready to harvest after 23 hours, but you must wait at least 24 hours between calves if you wish to find another one!!!
You can buy 5 dairies with coins and as many as you want additionally with farm cash. Try keeping 3 barns full and switching groups of cows between them as many times as you can.
Pig Pen – See Truffle Hunting Guide for a chart showing what each truffle can be traded in for. If you are level 55+ you can buy the Saddleback Pig which harvests for 1,000 coins/ day in the pen and is great for stuffing. Plus having pigs that find Black Truffles gives you the highest probability of winning the Strawberry Pig. This pig sells for 15,000 coins (other pigs sell for 100 coins max) and is the highest selling item you can get so easily!
- Animals at 1 day's growth are ready. 1 day animals =100%, 2 day = 50%, 3 days= 34%
- You can use as few or as many animals as you want when stuffing for breeding purposes. I have had great success breeding foals and eggs with 4-7 animals in the building per harvest.
- You should use as many high coin harvesting animals when you stuff the dairy and pig pen for coins.
- Keep these stuffing tips in mind whenever a new animal is released that fits into an interactive building! Your friends will worship you for always being able to share new foals, calves, pigs, eggs, etc. with them!
- You can expand most of these buildings or may be able to in the future.
- Don't do this too much, it's really bad for your wrist :(
