An exciting update just took place in FrontierVille, changing forever the game and finally fixing the chicken glitch that has sky rocketed the levels of so many FrontierVille players and drove us mad thanks to the tons of the chickens they had on their homesteads, slowing the game down like crazy. However, as I was saying, things are changing today thanks to the Chicken Coop Expansion that was just released, allowing us to store the chickens inside the coop and changing the way feeding them works! So read on for a complete guide on the chicken coop expansion, here on FrontierVille Info!
To say a few words about the story behind the introduction of the Chicken Coop expansion, we have Jacques who tells us that Coyotes are coming and they love chickens, therefore we have to build the Chicken Coop Expansion and store the chickens inside.
It is worth noting that your regular Chicken Coop can store, by default, 10 chickens, so if you don’t have a ton of them, you don’t have to actually build the Chicken Coop Expansion. However, if you do have more chicken that need to be stored, you have to start the expansion plans and for that, you require the following materials:
- 15 of each of Hammer, Nails, Brick, Paint Drill and Paint Bucket
- 15 Chicken wire (which can be obtained by asking your neighbors)
After you complete this upgrade, you will increase the storage capacity of the Chicken Coop to 25 and you’ll be able to start a new expansion: there is a total of 4 expansions you can build, meaning that there are 5 levels of capacity for the new FrontierVille chicken coop:
- Level 1 (protects 10)
- Level 2 (protects 25)
- Level 3 (protects 50)
- Level 4 (protects 75)
- Level 5 (protects 100)
So… do you really need the Chicken Coop Expansion, and storing your chickens in FrontierVille? By all means, YES, because coyotes are indeed coming to the game and apparently they will simply steal your chickens from the homestead.
Also, if you want to hear some bad news (at least for those who have millions of chickens): feeding chickens with the chicken coop now requires you to spend energy, and also you can’t feed more than you have stored inside the chicken coop. So a fully expanded and completely filled chicken coop would require 100 energy to feed all the animals inside. Finally, a great update!
What do you think about the new chicken coop expansion and chicken feeding mechanic? Are you for or against it?
