feed-the-chickensStarting today, there is an increased level of interaction between us and our FarmVille neighbors’ farms as we can now feed the chickens in the chicken coops of our neighbors! If you want to know all the details about this new Farmville Chicken Feeding event and how does it work, read on!

The announcement, as you can see in the image (click to enlarge) reads: “Feed the chickens that are in your friends’ coops and you may find MYSTERY EGGS! Happy, well fed chickens are more likely to lay Mystery Eggs!”

How does that translate in English: you can find mystery eggs to share with your friends while feeding the chickens in your friends’ chicken coops and you increase their chances of finding a mystery egg when they collect the eggs! That’s what teamwork means and does!

So, how do you feed the chickens? Simply visit a neighbor who has a chicken coop and click it (it will be glowing blue). NOTE that you can only feed the chickens AFTER you fertilize your neighbor’s crops! After feeding the chickens you will get one of the following messages:

– that you did not find any mystery eggs
– that you found a mystery egg you can share with your friends.

On your farm, there is an increased chance to find a mystery egg if somebody feeds you chickens. If you don’t get one, you will still receive a message that you’ve earned some extra money for “some extra nice eggs” (160 coins in my case).

All in all, this new Feed the Chicken Coops thing is a really cool new feature, right?
