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 – ?

Mafia Wars Subterfuge Crates

Mafia Wars has launched brand new subterfuge crates in the Marketplace. Crates are filled with limited edition items and users will love. The pictures below show a Con Man, Fake ID and Poison filled ring. The art of subterfuge is to dodge and escape.




The Subterfuge Crates are available in the same setup as other crates in the game, and can be purchased either one at a time, or in groups of three. A single Subterfuge Crate costs 12 Reward Points, and the trio costs 35, for a savings of a single Reward Point when buying in bulk.



Either way, you have a 10% chance of receiving a Rare item from your crate, a 30% chance of finding something Uncommon and a 60% chance of finding a Common item. Some of the items you might find within are Con Men, Poison-Filled Rings, or even Fake IDs.

What did you receive inside your Subterfuge Crate? Let us know in the comments – we’d love to hear if you thought it was worth it!
