Animals

There are several types of animals you can raise, both as household pets and livestock. Some you have to order from town or buy from Ban, while others you get only through special events.

Dogs

At the beginning of the game, you get to choose from two different dogs: a floppy-eared one and one with pointy ears.

Be sure to put food in the dish by your house every day! Your dog will like you a lot more if you do. Anything edible you put into his bowl will turn into food, including herbs you find around your farm. If you do this, it might keep Murray away from trying to steal food from your storage room. When it rains, you don’t have to bring your dog into the house (in fact, you can’t) so don’t worry about it in bad weather; your dog will be fine. Call your dog by pressing the R button once. Also, make sure you pick it up every day to increase its affection.

Cats

If you’re good friends with Romana, she may stop by one day in Fall with a cat. This typically happens on the first day of Fall, after waking up, but it can happen any fall after or during the 1st year of Chapter 2.

The cat doesn’t do much; it mostly walks around your farm. You don’t need to feed it or anything. You can pick it up, though, to increase its affection.

Horse

Takakura comes one day in Summer or Fall of year one and brings you a horse–for free! You can ride the horse around the village, which will drastically reduce the time it takes to get places.

When it’s in the barn, be sure to feed your horse; bring him out to the pasture on nice days. He only eats once a day, unlike the other animals. You cannot sell it.

Call your horse over to you by pressing the R button twice. This’ll bring him from anywhere he is or where you might’ve left him to right where you are.

Chickens

Similar to most other games, chickens are the easiest animal to take care of and will probably be the first animal you buy. They’re kept in the chicken coop, and the females lay eggs for you to sell.

Chickens must be fed fodder you order from town, but they don’t need to be fed every day–just when the food box is empty. You may also leave your chickens outside in the pasture when the weather is nice.
Taking good care of any chicken may result in it laying a golden egg.

Giving Birth:
If you want to incubate eggs, you must have both a hen and a rooster, and the hen has to lay a fertilized egg. Yes, there is a difference between a regular egg and a fertilized egg, so make sure you check which one it is. Only the fertilized eggs can be incubated. It will take five days for the egg to hatch and approximately five more days for the chick to grow up. Whether you get a male or a female is random. (Tip: This means that if you didn’t get the gender you wanted, you can restart the day and try again!)

Cows

Cows are typically the most productive animal in a Harvest Moon game, although they’re a bit more work this time around. You start out with one normal cow, who will give milk until near the end of Chapter 1. Other cows you have to pay for, and you must also pay to have a cow seeded.

Each cow will not give milk until she has a calf, and will only give milk for about a year after the calf’s birth, so you’ll have to keep impregnating them, and… selling the cows, perhaps. That’s what some have chosen to do. If you have a cow mate with one of the bulls on your own farm, then it will cost nothing to have it seeded. When you buy a new cow, you have to wait 40 days for it to mature before being able to have babies.

Keep all your cows outside when it’s sunny. When the weather turns bad, bring them back in. Be sure to feed the cows twice a day when they’re in the barn–and brush them and talk to them too, of course. If your cow gets dirty (You should be able to see it on your cow), then take it outside and push it to the small water fountain to the left of the pasture entrance. Make sure it’s positioned correctly, and when you see the icon in the little window on the upper-right, press the Y button to wash your cow. Note that Good Fodder does not count as actual food, but a “snack.” You still have to feed them regular fodder too.

Giving Birth:
Calves (and their mothers) require special treatment. For one, the mother cow must be kept separate during the last few days of her pregnancy, and will be kept in the barn. Since she can’t leave the barn, be sure to feed her every day! She’ll be pregnant for 30 days.

Once the calf is born, it will be kept in a special “calf hatch” built by the Harvest Sprites at the edge of the pasture. The mother cow will give special milk, Mother’s milk, for a few days after she gives birth, so give it to the calf twice a day. After a while, the mother cow will stop giving Mama’s milk, so the calf will have to drink regular milk instead. After a few more days, the calf will stop taking milk and will only eat fodder. Once this happens, it will soon be ready to leave the calf hatch and join the other animals!

Produce:
As stated before, cows can be milked for four seasons after they’ve given birth. The kind of milk will be different depending on what kind of cow is giving the milk. The grade of the milk depends on how well you take care of your cows. Once you purchase the Milk Processing room, not only will cows milk themselves, but you can make cheese and butter. You can only make regular butter/cheese and good butter/cheese. The quality of the butter/cheese depends on the type and quality of milk.

Sheep

Sheep are the second hardest animal to take care of, next to cows. They are kept in the barn along with the cows, goats, and horse. They need to be sheared about once a season, so be sure you have a pair of shears! The quality of the wool will be different depending on how much your sheep likes you. Also, because you can only buy sheep (i.e., no males), they can’t reproduce.

Sheep are taken care of the same way the other barn animals are. Make sure you feed them twice a day when in the barn, bring them out when it’s sunny, and brush and talk to them too. If your sheep gets dirty (You should be able to see it on the sheep), then take it outside and push it to the small water fountain to the left of the pasture entrance. Make sure it’s positioned correctly, and when you see the icon in the little window on the upper-right, press the Y button to wash your sheep. Note that Good Fodder does not count as actual food, but a “snack.” You still have to feed them regular fodder too.

Ducks

First off, you need to have a pond built during Chapter 1, and must be raising at most 4 chickens (so that you have room for the two more ducks who will come). One day, during Summer, typically the first day, your wife may wake up before you and tell you that ducks came to the pond! You can choose whether to keep them or not.

Ducks are taken care of in the same way chickens are. They’ll eat the same feed, and can be let out in the pasture on nice days as well.

Giving Birth:
If you want to try to have more ducks, you can always put the eggs in the incubator as with chickens. In five days a chick will be born, and approximately five days later it’ll grow into either a male or female at random (Tip: This means if you don’t get the gender you want, you can restart the day and try again!). However, for some reason, ducks do not sit on their own eggs. This means that all the eggs you find will still be under your chickens–in other words, you’re not getting any extra eggs. Until you hatch it, there’s no way to tell the difference between a duck and chicken egg. Eventually, some of the eggs that you put into the incubator may start hatching as ducks instead of chickens!

Goats

Starting in the first year of Chapter 2, Van will sell a goat during Spring. Goats produce milk, and will give milk for about one year. They are kept in the barn along with your other animals. Unfortunately, you can’t sell the goats; the only way is to kill them.

As with other barn animals, make sure to feed your goat twice a day when in the barn, let it out when it’s nice, and brush it and talk to it. If your goat gets dirty (You should be able to see it on your goat), then take it outside and push it to the small water fountain to the left of the pasture entrance. Make sure it’s positioned correctly, and when you see the icon in the little window on the upper-right, press the Y button to wash your goat. Note that Good Fodder does not count as actual food, but a “snack.” You still have to feed them regular fodder too.
