What do baby calves and foals grow up into on FarmVille

FarmVille now allows all baby foals and calves to grow up into adult animals that you can keep. Depending on what animals are in your nursery barn you have a chance of them growing up into a chocolate cow, Holstein cow, black horse, cream draft horse and a light blue pony. 


You might notice that baby animals do not grow up into their exact counterpart. The reason for this is the cows and horses that can produce calves and foals can only be purchased for farm cash and it would not be fair to people who spent cash on purchasing these adult animals to have their neighbors get them for free. 


Here is what the baby calves and foals grow up into.


Cows

  • Chocolate Cow – Pink Patch Calf, Fan Calf, Neapolitan Calf, Pink Calf, Kelly Green Calf

  • Holstein Cow – Calf, Longhorn Calf, Brown Calf



Horses

  • Black Horse – Foal, Grey Foal, Mustang Foal, White Foal

  • Cream Draft Horse – Clydesdale Foal, Percheron Foal

  • Light Blue Pony – All Pony Foals




These are the rumored transformations provided by FarmVille Freak Oliver:


  • The Brown Foal, Gray Foal, Pinto Foal, White Foal, Appaloosa Foal will grow up into a Black Horse.


  • The Clydesdale Foal and percheron foal will grow up into a Cream Draft Horse.


  • The Pink Pony Foal, Purple Pony Foal and Brown Pony Foal will grow up into a Blue Pony Foal.

  • Mustang Foal – ?


  • The Pink Calf, BOV1NE- 09 Calf, Neapolitan Calf, Pink Patch Calf, Kelly Green Calf, Fan Calf will grow up into a Chocolate Cow.


  • The Regular Cow Calf, Brown Calf, Longhorn Calf will grow up into a Holstein Cow.

  • Tuscan Calf – ?

FarmVille Bushels and Farmer's Market

FarmVille now has a farmer's market. So if you are at level 15 or higher the farmer's market allows you to collect bushels from harvested crops that can be used to get bonuses for yourself or give them to neighbors. To collect bushels all you need to do is harvest your regular crops in the same way you can harvest bunches from flower crops. You will be able to collect bushel;s from all permanent crops available in the market. Once you find your first bushel you will get a market stall. If you do not wish to wait you also purchase a market stall in the building section of the market for either coins or farm cash. The limit to market stalls is five. You farm can have a maximum of five stalls. Each stall you have can sell one type of crop. Once you have your market stalls in place you can then start collecting bushels to use yourself or let your neighbors collect by harvesting your crops. 


To access the market stalls menu you would need to select farmers market from it's pull down menu. Inside you can see what bushels you've collected from your neighbors under the my bushels section. What bushels your neighbors have available in the get bushels section and what bushels your stall is currently offering in the my stalls section. Clicking the get bushels button will show you what bushels all your neighbors are currently offering. Clicking any available bushels will display a list of bushels that each neighbor has available and how long their stall is open for. Selecting a specific neighbor will take you to their stall. Bushels taken from your friends stall are added to your inventory and can be seen in the my bushels section of your stall. 


Once you collect bushels either from your farm or your neighbors they are all stored in your inventory. You can hold up to 50 bushels in your inventory. Each bushel can be shared or used. Clicking the "Share" button on any bushel will allow you to offer up a number of bushels of your choosing to your friends via a feed. Clicking the "Use" button consumes one of the bushels and gives you a bonus. The type of bonus will depend on whether you have access to the crop or not. If the bushel used came from a crop that you did plant you receive a bonus of +1 mastery whenever that crop is harvested on your farm for two hours. If you have already mastered this crop the bonus is +1 Experience Point per harvest. If you use the bushel of a crop that you are not high enough of a level to play in you'll receive a licence to plant that crop that lasts for 2 hours. 


Whenever neighbors use your stall you can choose to receive a reward of your choice. If you neighbors have used your market stall an arrow will point to the appropriate stall. Viewing the interior of your stall will show you the three rewards that you can choose from. Coins, Fuel and Experience Points (XP).

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 how to get the Wild Mustang and Wild Mustang Foal

FarmVille has now got Wild Mustangs roaming around and visiting farms. If you see a wild mustang on your farm you will need the help of 5 friends to wrangle her if you would like to keep her. There are also wild mustang foals.


So go and search your farm now for a chance to complete the challenge and get a wild mustang to keep on your farm. 


There is also another catch FarmVille will insist that you give them permission to contact you via email. So if they have your mail ID and you have a minimum of five neighbors then while you are tending your farm this message will pop up.







When you click "Ask For Help" you must choose a minimum of 5 neighbors and a up to a maximum of 15. 


If the friends you are asking for help have not given FarmVille their email IDs. The Following message will pop up.





This is a three day challenge and your friends need to respond really fast. To be of any use to you they should have also signed up with FarmVille to receive notifications via email. 


Once you have started wrangling your wild mustang you can check your progress at any time by hovering your mouse over the wold mustang icon. 





Once you have received enough responses the next time you login to FarmVille you will get this pop-up. Remember a minimum of 5 responses are needed.





The mustang will wait for you in your gift box. Once you place the mustang on your farm you can them post a feed offering a foal to 5 neighbors within 24 hours. 


If you have been unable to find five neighbors then you can still purchase the mustang for 20 farm cash. If you have let's say 2 neighbors who offered help then it would be 20 farm cash minus 2 and so on.


If you do not want to go through this whole process and would like simply to purchase the wold mustang for 20 farm cash. You would need to click on the " Buy Help" button.
