In this guide, we will discuss how to build a chicken farm and get eggs in Valheim.
How to Unlock the Eggs:
First of all, you need to defeat the Yagluth. You will not be able to get your own chicken farm until you defeat him. Because it will then unlock the eggs that you can buy from the trader. This is the most expensive item that you can buy from Haldor. Each egg will cost you 1500 and you need at least two eggs to bread.
How to Build Chicken Farm:
Now you need to build a chicken coop. The length should be three meters this will keep the coop warm. Build a fireplace and cover the fireplace with the barricade. Also, make a little space in the coop roof. You need to place the eggs one by one near the fireplace. Because the eggs need to be warm in order to hatch them. Don’t place the eggs in stacks otherwise, they won’t hatch. It will take a day for eggs to hatch.
You also need to feed them. You can actually feed them any seed. Always close the door of the coop otherwise the chicken will escape and you can’t take them back into the coop. The chicken will eat a seed per day.
It will take two days to grow the chickens into hens. Just make sure to protect them because the small creatures will come and attack them. When two of the chicken grow they will start laying eggs. They will also tell if they are hungry or happy so make sure to pay attention to that.
You can feed the seeds in a load of stacks so you don’t need to worry about feeding them. You cannot make the farm without a roof this will make them feel cold. To warm them you can also make a fire inside the coop.
Chicken Meat and Recipes:
Farming will also reveal some new chicken and egg recipes. You can also get the meat from the chicken by killing it. Cook the meat in the oven and eat it to fulfill your HP. It will give you 60 health and 20 stamina. More importantly, it will give you 5 HP per tick. These are the recipes that you can cook.
