Farming Simulator 22 - Chickens
Chickens are one of the domestic animals you can tend to in Farming Simulator 22. To take care of them and use them for your benefit, you need to build a poultry house. Purchasing a poultry house is quickly done through the game store, check properties, and then buy it.
There are smaller chicken pens to buy, which are for hundred chickens, and a larger chicken pen for 400 chickens. To buy chickens, go to the front of the poultry house or visit the animal dealer. Also, you need to pay a certain amount for animal transport.
For those that wonder how to feed chickens, the answer is simple. Chickens are very easy to provide because they only need wheat to survive. Pour the wheat on the marked spots and let them enjoy eating. For smaller chicken pens, you need to leave up to one thousand liters of food and five thousand liters for the larger one. Remember to also clean the chicken pens from time to time.
Production And Sale
Chickens produce eggs that you can sell on the market. Every 15 minutes in the game, 20 chickens will generate one liter of eggs. That means a hundred chickens can produce 51 eggs every 15 minutes, or a total of 480 liters per day.
Chickens also reproduce, which is a good thing. If you have ten chickens, you will get a new one every 24 hours. Keep in mind that the rate of reproduction is higher if the chickens are of the same color.
Another thing to know is that you will not know the exact production rate when you start taking care of chickens. There will be no information available, but you should not worry. Be patient until you have more chickens, and then wait and see.
When it comes to selling chickens, you can sell them by going to the front gate of the chicken pen and then opening the menu. Select how many you want to sell.
Finally, the speed of reproduction largely depends on the number of chickens you have. If you wish to earn cash from selling eggs, you should know that it will take a long time to see a significant income. Selling eggs is a slow process, so be patient. The best thing about chickens is that you only need wheat to feed them, and they can bring you slow but consistent income.
