After a Hen and Gobbler have been placed in the coop, there is a delay of several days before the hens will begin laying eggs. After the hens begin laying, they can lay around an egg a day. (Hens can lay eggs faster than this if you remove the eggs as they are laid, but this will prevent the eggs from ever hatching) One gobbler will make an entire coop of hens lay eggs.
Turkey eggs appear in the space beneath the Turkey Hens. If the space is full, the hen will not lay eggs. Turkey eggs that are moved at all will never hatch, even if they are picked up and immediately placed back into the same spot. Once an egg has been hatched into a Turkey Poult, they may be moved without issue. (although poults can starve just like hens and gobblers)
Turkey droppings appear in the bottom left spot and work their way across before moving up the next row. This is important to remember, because it means that turkey hens in the bottom row will often be unable to lay eggs because the turkey droppings will block the space beneath them.
The turkey coop can be opened like a container to manage the turkeys inside.
Destroying a Turkey Coop:
A Turkey Coop can't be destroyed by normal means, but require the use of Smelling Salts; first to take down the purity, then to damage/destroy it. Each Smelling Salt reduces the purity with 0.50 or deal 20% of damage.
Egg purity increases randomly when it is laid, based on the turkeys and the coop. Each time an egg is laid that has higher purity than the coop, the coop purity can go up.
Dragging a variety of items over the Turkey Coop and right clicking on it will give then to the Turkeys as food supply (identical to the compost).
Items that can be placed in the Turkey Coop:
The Turkey Coop has a 200 point food capacity. The table below shows what items can be added to the bin and how many fill points they provide.
To add food to the turkey coop, left click it in your inventory and then right click on the coop.
- Note - The table is currently incomplete and is missing many items and their point values.
