FarmVille raise your baby foals and calves in the nursery barn

Have you built your Nursery Barn if so you can now raise your baby foals and baby calves in the nursery barn. With the chance that each time your harvest from your Nursery barn one of your baby animals will grow into an adult animal. So stock up your Nursery barn with nursery items. 


To know more about the Nursery barn we have attached a guide found on the official FarmVille forum by community manager Lexilicious.



“Nursery Barn:


Upon entering Farmville you’ll receive the following Message of the Day.After clicking the ‘OK’ button, you will be taken to your Gift Box where you will receive the Nursery Barn Foundation.You can also purchase the Nursery foundation from the decorations section of Market for 5,000 Coins.


Once you’ve placed the Foundation on your farm, you will be prompted with a message letting you know that you can post a feed to ask you friends for help building your Nursery.


Clicking the “Share” button will give you the option to post a feed to your wall. Up to 10 of your Neighbors can click on this feed to receive 100 Coins.


In order to use your Nursery Barn, you’ll need to finish building it. Selecting ‘Look Inside’ from your foundation’s menu will show you what you need to complete your Nursery Barn.


When you first place the foundation, you’ll have one Bottle already. In order to build a complete stable you’ll need 10 of each item. You can get these items one of three ways:


1. From neighbors via the Free Gifts menu.


Neighbors can send you the components you need to build your Nursery. Your Neighbors will be able to send you three of the five types of building components to help you complete your Nursery Barn.



Please note that the components displayed on the Free Gifts Page are randomized. As such, the components displayed on the Free Gifts Page may be different for each player. Each player should be able to send one of the two components specific to the Nursery Barn (Bottles and Blankets), and two of the components shared with the Horse Stable.



When neighbors send you a building component, it works exactly like any other free gift. After you accept the gift it will appear in your gift box.
After clicking the “use” button under the gift it will automatically be added to your Nursery Barn.



PLEASE NOTE: Since the Horse Stable and Nursery Barn share components, if you have both unfinished on your farm you’ll be able to select which building a component goes to when to click select.



2. Purchasing components from the Market,


You can purchase components required to build your Nursery Barn from the Market for 1 Farm Cash per item.


3. Ask For More


When viewing the interior of your unfinished Nursery Barn, each component that you have not yet received 10 of has an ‘Ask For More’ button, that when clicked will allow you to post a feed to let people know how many of each component you need. The link in this Feed will take them to the Gifting page where they can select a component to send to you.


When you reach 25 items, you’ll receive pop-up that will allow you to post a feed to your wall. The first ten neighbors to click this feed will receive a random building component for their own Nursery Barn construction.


When you complete your Nursery Barn, you will receive a popup asking you if you’d like to share the news with your friends. Clicking the Share button on this popup will give you the option to post a feed to your wall that will give up to five neighbors who click on it a free Grey Foal.


Once the Nursery Barn is complete, you’ll receive a Grey Foal of your own.’


You’re able to store up to 20 baby foals and calves in your stable and you may only have one Nursery Barn per farm.



Every 24 hours, you’ll be able to collect from the foals and calves stored in your Nursery. Eventually, you’ll be able to use the Nursery to grow your foals and calves up!” (Source: Official FarmVille Forum)

FarmVille Nursery Barn









FarmVille now has a brand new building for you to keep your calves and foals in, the Nursery Barn! Just like the Horse Stables, you'll need to build it with help from your friends or by purchasing pieces from the Market with Farm Cash.

Starting with last night's release the foundation for the Nursery Barn can either be found in your Gift Box, or available for purchase from the Market for 5,000 Coins. Once the foundation is placed, you can post a feed to let your friends know so they can help you get started. Up to ten neighbors can click the feed to receive 100 coins.

You can select Look Inside from the Nursery Barn's pulldown menu in order to see just what you'll need to build a complete Nursery. Five different items go into the Nursery Barn, and you'll need 10 of each of them. The Bricks, Wooden Boards and Nails are hold overs from the Horse Stable, but you'll also need baby Bottles and Blankets for the nursery. When you place the foundation, there's already a Bottle inside to help you get started.

In order to get all the pieces you need, each of them can be purchased from the Market for 1 Farm Cash each. You can also get them as gifts from friends from the Free Gifts page. Three of the five components necessary to build the Nursery are available to send, with a random three being displayed for each player. That way everyone has a chance to get each piece they need. Also, you can now let your neighbors know exactly what pieces you need. When you look inside your unfinished Nursery Barn, you'll see that each piece has an Ask For More button underneath. Clicking it will let you post a Feed that tells your friend exactly how many of each piece you need to finish your Nursery.

Once you hit 25 items, you'll be able to post a feed to let your friends know about your progress. The first 10 neighbors that click it will receive a random building component for their own Nursery. Once your Nursery is finally completed, you'll be able to send another feed that celebrates your achievement by offering up to 5 of your neighbors a free grey foal. You'll also have your very own grey foal waiting for you inside of your Nursery once it's finished.

You can store up to 20 foals and calves in your Nursery, and can collect from them every 24 hours, just like Horses and the Horse Stable. Eventually, you can use the Nursery to grow your foals and calves up, so stay tuned for more info coming very soon.

The red border coolie can be purchased for 300,000 coins from the market, currently this is the only breed and color that can be purchased for coins and you can also change it's color. If you change it's color you will be charged farm cash for your purchase. when you click buy a pop-up will appear letting you know that you'll need to feed your puppy everyday in order to keep it from running away. Clicking ok on this pop-up will take you to the puppy customization screen, at this point you can pick a name and a gender for your puppy. Once your ready to purchase the red border coolie click the buy button. You will also receive a pop-up reminding you to feed your puppy kibble once every 24 hours. If your puppy runs up to you with a thought button over it's head with kibble inside it means your puppy is hungry and needs to be fed. In order to keep your puppy from going to the pound you need to feed it kibble once every 24 hours. Kibble can be purchased from the market for 5 farm cash or you can ask your friends to send you kibble. Clicking the "Ask Your Friends" will give you to option to post a feed that if clicked, will allow 3 of your neighbors to send you one bag of kibble each. This feed will remain active for 24 hours or until 3 neighbors have clicked it. Each neighbor that helps you will receive a 100 coins. All the kibble you receive either from the market or your neighbors will automatically go into you gift box. To find the status of your puppy simply mouse over your pet and you'll see how many times out of 14 that they have been fed. If they are currently hungry you will see how much time they have before they run away. If they have already been fed you will see a timer showing you how much time there is before they are hungry again. 


If you neglect to feed your puppy it will end up in the pound and you would need to pay farm cash to get it out. If your puppy runs away there will be an icon on the left hand of your screen with picture of your puppy behind bars. Clicking on this icon will inform you that your puppy is in the pound. From the pet section of the market you will have to pay 3 farm cash to free your puppy from the pound. 


Remember you can only have one coin purchased puppy, that means if your puppy goes to the pound you cannot get another puppy for coins. You will have to release him from the pound or purchase a new puppy from the market with farm cash. 


If you do not want to deal with the stress of a coin puppy you can buy the golden retriever sheep dog and border coolie for 65 farm cash each. Each puppy has the option for three different colors along with the same options as the coin puppy. The cash puppy also comes along with a two week supply of kibble. You may purchase as many farm cash puppies as you want and they will not run away if they are not fed. All puppies well taken care of will become full grown dogs in the future.

Pets have finally come to FarmVille.You can now buy a puppy of your very own in our Market! Your new puppy will follow you wherever you go, and will eventually become a full grown dog! Here’s how you can get one.


How to get a puppy in FarmVille


Coin Option – Buying Your Puppy
You can purchase the Red Border Collie for 300,000 Coins:





When you click Buy, the following pop-up appears, letting you know that you’ll need to feed your puppy every day in order to keep it from running away. You are NOT charged for the puppy at this point. Clicking Okay on this pop-up takes you to the Puppy Customization screen:

PLEASE NOTE: The only color available for the coin Border Collie is Red. If you select a color other than Red, the price will change from 300,000 Coins to 65 Farm Cash:



Once you’re ready to purchase your Red Border Collie, click the Buy button. You’ll receive a popup reminding you to feed your puppy Kibble once every day, or it will run away:



Clicking Okay will take you to your Farm to place your new puppy. You are only charged for the puppy when you place him or her on your Farm. Once your puppy is placed, it will run up to you with a thought bubble over its head with Kibble inside.



This means that your puppy is hungry and needs kibble!
Coin Option – Feeding Your Puppy
In order to keep your puppy around, once it’s hungry you’ll need to feed it Kibble once every 24 hours for a period of 14 days. You can get Kibble one of two ways:

Purchasing it in the Market for 5 Farm Cash (one bag per 5 Farm Cash):



Or you can ask your friends to send you Kibble via Feeds. Selecting Ask for Kibble from your puppy’s pulldown menu will bring up the following popup:



Clicking Ask Your Friends will give you the option to post a feed that if clicked will let up to three of your neighbors send you one bag of Kibble each. This feed remains active for up to 24 hours, or once three neighbors have clicked. Each neighbor that helps you receives 100 Coins.

All Kibble you receive whether from Neighbors or from the Market will automatically go to your Gift Box. To feed your puppy, when you have Kibble available and they are hungry, either select Feed from the puppy’s pulldown menu.

To view the status of your puppy, simply mouseover your pet, and you’ll see how many times out of 14 that they’ve already been fed. If they’re currently hungry, you’ll see how much time you have before they run away (the “Feed Now” timer). If they’ve already been fed once for the day, you’ll see a timer showing how long you have before they’re hungry again.



Clicking Pay Fine will take you to the Pets section of the Market with a ‘Rescue My Dog’ option.



Clicking Buy will take you back to your Farm and give you the option to place your puppy.
Farm Cash Option – Buying A Puppy
You can buy the Golden Retriever, Sheep Dog, and Border Collie for 65 Farm Cash Each. Each Puppy has the option for three different colors, along with the same options as the Coin Option puppy. The Cash puppy also comes with a 2 weeks supply of Kibble.



You may purchase as many Farm Cash puppies as you want, and they will not run away if they are not fed for a day.

Eventually, all puppies, if well taken care of will become full grown dogs!
PLEASE NOTE: Your Farm Cash will not be deducted until you place your puppy on your Farm.

Remember that you may only have one Coin purchased puppy. That means that if your puppy goes to the pound, you can not purchase another Coin puppy. You’ll have to retrieve your original puppy from the pound.
Rescuing Your Puppy From the Pound – Coin Puppy Only
If you forget to feed your puppy, they’ll end up in the pound, and you’ll need to pay to get them out. When you enter FarmVille after your puppy’s run away, there will be a HUD icon in the upper-left hand corner of your screen with a puppy behind bars. Once you click on this HUD icon, you’ll receive the following pop up:
