Are any of the prizes worth it?

The chicken medallion board offers fences that are nice and a seed packet for the grand prize. The sheep races offer a nice LE pig. And the Election button is a nice chicken, but that one is about to end anyway.

Now, mind you, the fences probably don't really work to keep the chickens in.......lol.

    I love the chicken fences... and they will hold in the chicks if you place them properly, seems the gate is the culprit and you need to **** the gate tight against the fence! Love the pig from the election crate and have not yet won the chick from the sheep races as I have only completed 1 race so far, not putting a lot of effort in this... The seed packet is just that, another crop packet and I see it only as something to master before times runs out :)

    None of my fences are working well for well over 6 weeks now. And yes, I know how to set up fences.

    The writable sign (4th prize from the chicken medallion board) is totally worth it! The rest is all optional IMO. Some are nice enough, but for me the sign stands out.

    With the chicken nursery you can run the chick from the sheep races thru the nursery and have it give 2 fertilizer, plus once it's an adult it's actually a pretty good looking chicken, and if your big on the Black Sultan chicken, you can run those through as well and they become just as valuable, if not more, than the Black Arabian horses.

    The Black Sultan chicken gets hungry more often than the Black Arabian horse, so once it's been put through the nursery to become a poops-a-lot chicken, it's better'n a Black Arabian horse.

    Thanks for that tip. I'm at my coin limit and I'm tired of Hay Wagons. I will buy some Black Sultan's while my farm is at animal limit and they can go into inventory for later use.

    The problem with a ****-a-lot chicken is it don't give horseshoes.

    This is true Phil, but more fertilizer is better than less fertilizer. We can't win them all.........

    Which is why I said 'maybe more valuable'........I agree, they feed much more often than the horse does and is a good source of fertilizer to tide you over until the horses are ready.......

    Zynga, what we need is a HORSE nursery, for pete's sake... To make them hungry more often, kick off more horse shoes, and **** more. A chicken nursery is just not the same thing ;)

    I found that I can raise 8 black Sultan chicken WITHOUT the nursery in the same time it takes to put a single chick through the nursery :( So I won't be using it much, or actually at all. It's just easier to ask for 8 bottles than to ask for 4 bottles and 4 copper sheets, post for 6 training pages, post for 2 quilt pieces... OMG, too much work for a chick! A horse, yeah, I would do that for a horse.

    As for the original topic, the only nice prize right now (in my opinion) is the malay chicken from the sheep races because she's very pretty. No other reason :)

    As a low level player I am really enjoying the coin from the sheep races. I can expand my farms along the back edge with all the coin I am winning!

    I love the pretty Malay Chicken we win from the sheep races!

    I am actually enjoying the process of using the chicken nursery. I have collected most of the stuff in advance. Then I do a quick run through a couple times when I'm all ready. Don't really care about the fences or the seed packet.

    I love the chicken nursery. I always need eggs and now that I put them thru the nursery they are giving me fertilizer! So I can finally begin getting rid of the 50 or so reward chickens I have in inventory. I never used them precisely because they gave no fert!

    Why use Black Sultan over Gold Cochin?

    I feel that with all of the work involved, the prizes are generally not worth the effort. Animals don't produce much (eggs for chickens, etc. - I raised mine in nurseries so I could get some fertilizer.) I like the fences.

    Because after you run them through the chicken nursery the Black Sultan will give a guaranteed 4 fert every feeding. Gold Cochin will only give 2 guaranteed each feeding, occasionally you will get more if you happen to get one of the few random fert drops as well.
