Introduction to animals

Undoubtedly, one of the highlights of Hay Day is the animals available. They really give the game a lease-of-life compared to just having boring old seeds and crops. There are a large variety of animals that you can buy to help out on the farm, producing resources which you can then process, or sell on straightaway.
It is important to learn which animals produce what resources, so that you can understand those that are best to purchase for your farm. Animals are a big investment, so it’s a decision that you shouldn’t take lightly and requires careful consideration.

While crops do not require any care in Hay Day, unlike in real life to make sure they are well-watered, animals are more difficult to keep happy. You have to feed them before they will start to produce their relevant resource. Like crops, you also have to wait a while before you can collect the resources.


The Basics

During the tutorial, you are introduced to the animal pens. There is a variety of animal pens available to you, each one supporting a particular type of animal. For example, the Chicken Coop, fairly obviously, will only hold Chickens. You shouldn’t try to put a horse in there! You can find the animal pens in the top-tab of the store, while the animals themselves are in the tab below, marked with the picture of the chicken. You unlock more animals and pens as you rank up and advance through the levels.

To purchase an animal, find it in the Store and drag it to the correct pen. You will then have to feed it. To do this, tap the animal (a Chicken for example) and and drag the food (a bag of Feed in the case of Chickens) to feed them. You will lose a certain amount of the food resource depending on the number of animals you drag it over.



Soon you’ll have a thriving community of animals on your farm

You will then have to wait for your animal to produce something tangible that you can sell. As with most things in Hay Day, you are able to speed this process up. Simply click on the animal and then the speed up button to do this. You will notice to the right of the time-remaining indicator how many diamons are required to speed it up. The speed up button is represented by a lightning bolt. You will have to do this for every animal you want to speed-up, there is no bulk option here.

To collect produce from an animal pen, click on the animal, then drag the item to collect with over them. For Chickens, this would be a basket.

Animal Buildings

Below is a list of the animal-related buildings in Hay Day. You can find these alongside the Field in the first tab of the shop:
Chicken Coop:
Home for Chickens [Unlocks at Level 3]

Cow Pasture:
Home for Cows [Unlocks at Level 6]

List of Animals

Below you will find a list of the animals currently available in Hay Day. Note that since Pets were added in a later update to the game, these have been given their own section of the guide.

Available from the start.
Chickens Produce Eggs, which are useful in many items, particularly cakes and bread-based items.
The produce Eggs every 20 minutes that they are fed for.
They are housed in Chicken Coops and each Coop can hold 6 Chickens.

Unlocked at Level 6.
Cows cost 600 Coins from when you first get them.
Cows produce Milk every hour which is used to make various dairy-based products.
Keep Cows in a Cow Pasture – each one can hold 5 Cows.

Unlocked at Level 10.
They cost 500 Gold from when you first get them.
Pigs produce Bacon every four hours and is used for various produce items, including Hamburgers

You have to house them in a Sheep Pasture, which can contain up to five Sheep.

Unlocked at Level 32.
Goats produce Goat Milk, which takes 8 hours, and is used to make Goat Cheese.
Goats are kept in a Goat Yard, which can house up to four in each. A second Yard is available at Level 37.


Feeding your Animals

To Feed your animals you need to build a Feed Mill. This will provide you with the resources required to keep them from getting hungry. You can find the Feed Mill in the Shop, under the second tab down, which houses the production buildings. The Feed Mill works in much the same way as any other Production Building – simply tap it, then drag the bag of feed into the central bucket to begin production.

You unlock the second Feed Mill at Level 12, at the same time as the second Chicken Coop. You should avoid the temptation to build the second Coop first because it is cheaper. You should make sure you have the facilities to feed your animals before buying them.

Purchasing the Feed Mill first will mean you are able to build up a stockpile or Feed, then get the Chickens and keep them well fed for a long time to come.

Below you will see a list of the animal feed, and the composite parts required to create them:
Chicken Feed:
Production Time:5 Minutes
Ingredients: 2 Wheat, 1 Corn
Reward: 1 XP

Cow Feed:
Production Time: 10 Minutes
Ingredients: 1 Corn, 2 Soybeans
Reward: 2 XP

Pig Feed:
Production Time: 20 Minutes
Ingredients: 2 Carrots, 1 Soybean
Reward:2 XP

Sheep Feed:
Production Time: 30 Minutes
Ingredients: 3 Wheat, 1 Soybean
Reward: 3 XP

Goat Feed:
Production Time: 40 Minutes
Ingredients: 1 Wheat, 1 Corn, 2 Carrots
Reward: 3 XP



The cornerstone of any successful farm, and of doing well at Hay Day in general, is to plant and grow as many crops as you can. Putting heaps of seeds in the ground isn’t enough to make money, however. First off, though, you have to purchase a ‘Patch of Dirt’, upon which you can dig and plant seeds. These cost just 1 Coin from the Shop. You are limited to the amount of patches of dirt you can buy, to stop people from just spamming seeds. More are available to unlock as you progress.

Once you have harvested a plant, you can then process it, if you wish, for something worth even more Coins. Wheat and Corn results in Chicken Feed, for example. This works the same way that you can process Milk, produced by any Cows that you may have on your farm, to make Cheese.


The Basics:

You begin the game with three farm plots. Later on in the game, as you rise through the levels, you will be able to unlock more plots – generally this occurs by three more plots per level. You can purchase more plots in the Store under the Fields option in the first tab.

Tap on one of the empty farm plots and you are able to choose which crop you would like to plant. To plant, tap on the seed icon that you would like to grow, then drag it onto the plot in question. The seeds will then begin to grow! Each Field will produce two crops.

TIP: The fact that each Field rewards you with 2 crops means that you potentially get one to replant, and one to sell or use.

To plant new Fields, open the Shop menu. You will find Fields at the very top of the first tab. You will unlock three new Field plots at Level 3, which will be the first opportunity you have to plant more. Each Field only takes up one square of land, so you have to work quite hard to get a significant return on each one.

Note: The game will warn you if you are about to use up the last of a particular crop. The reason you don’t want to do this is obviously because you then won’t be able to replant it – instead you would have to use Diamonds or buy it from another player.


To harvest crops, in Hay Day, tap the crop that you want to harvest and pick up the sickle. Then, drag the sickle across the entirety of the crop. This will earn you both the item that you have harvested, along with some experience points.

Crops do not go bad if you leave them out, unlike in real life – you don’t have a time limit before you can harvest them basically.

TIP: Tap on a crop that has not yet matured to the point at which it is ready to harvest, and you will be shown the amount of time left until you are able to do so.

Just when you thought you had unlocked everything Hay Day has to offer when it comes to farming, you find out that there is in fact a whole other tier of items to buy, in the Trees and Bushes category! These are more than just pretty decorations, in fact they provide you with new items of produce.

Trees and Bushes

Trees and Bushes are somewhat unique, in that once you have purchased and planted them, you only have a limited number of uses before they wither and die. At this point, you can enlist a friend to revive it, gaining you XP and another batch of produce. After this, however, it will literally be an obstacle in the ground requiring you to cut it down to get back the space it occupied.

You can see the full list of these below:

Apple Tree:
Unlocks at Level 15

Raspberry Bush:
Unlocks at Level 19

Cherry Tree:
Unlocks at Level 22

Blackberry Bush:
Unlocks at Level 26

Cacao Tree:
Unlocks at Level 36

Coffee Bush:
Unlocks at Level 42



The basic story behind Hay Day is that your uncle has, unfortunately, decided to retire. We say unfortunately but if he wasn’t then there’d be no farm for you to inherit, so this cloud has a silver-lining. Your initial plot of land contains just a house, a barn, and a silo. The ground itself is littered with trees and rocks, which makes it seem like an unlikely spot for a fertile farm, but that’s before you get to work on it.

As you may have gathered, the plot to the game involves you upgrading the farm and making into a fruitful, money-making business. The game allows you to clear land, buy new buildings, animals, crops and generally everything you would expect when it comes to the life of a farmer.

Hay Day features two distinct types of currency. These are Diamond and Coins. Each has its own use, though Diamonds are considerably more valuable than the everyday, run-of-the-mill Coins.

As you begin your journey into Hay Day you will be guided along by a friendly scarecrow. He will teach you the simple things in the game and make sure you get past Level 3 without any major issues.

For starters, there is a brief section where you are required to paint your buildings. You are able to paint your house by tapping it, then dragging the paint brush across it. This also applies to the other starting buildings in the game, so don’t be afraid to give them a lick of paint. This will also remove the debris and muck that surrounds your buildings early on.


Naming Your Farm:

During the tutorial you will be introduced to a new character paying a visit to your land. Tap him and you will be asked to input the name of your farm. This can be anything you like, but be aware that this is how other players will identify your farm, so nothing too ridiculous!

TIP: If you choose a name that you later regret, however, you are able to change it. Simply tap the settings menu by selecting the cog icon in the top left-hand corner of the screen, then choose ‘Change Farm Name’.

Moving and Changing Objects:

You can alter, move and remove an object by tapping and holding it. Then, you can rotate it using the arrow signs, remove it by using the trash can icon, or move it around, simply by dragging it.


Diamonds are the premium currency in Hay Day. This means that generally, the way to acquire them is to buy them with real money. This won’t be for everyone. Some gamers will want to just download the game for free and never pay a penny to Supercell, but this does put you at a severe disadvantage and means you require far, far more patience to succeed than those willing to splash the cash. Diamons can, for example, be used to rush buildings through production, reduce waiting times to harvest, and so on – it’s easy to see the attraction of buying these to help your advancement in the game. Especially if it helps you compete with your friends!

You currently begin the game with 30 Diamonds.

How to Earn Free Diamonds:

Getting free Diamonds in Hay Day is much simpler than it has been in other ‘social’ games, where premium currencies are tightly controlled. Below is a list of all the ways to get free Diamonds in Hay Day, along with a guide providing more information on each one.
Getting free Diamonds in Hay Day is much simpler than it has been in other ‘social’ games, where premium currencies are tightly controlled. Below is a list of all the ways to get free Diamonds in Hay Day, along with a guide providing more information on each one.

– Every time you level up, you will receive 1 or 2 Diamonds. This will become the staple of your diamond supply, so is not to be sniffed at.

– You receive 1 Diamond from following Hay Day on Facebook.

– Login to Facebook using Hay Day to get 5 Diamonds

– You can get 2 free Diamonds for disovering a movie ticket and watching a 30 second trailer for another game.

– Diamonds are unearthed randomly when you search through mystery boxes.

– You can get Diamonds through mining once you reach Level 24.

– Complete an achievement to earn a Diamond.

– Finally, enter competitions from Supercell when contests are held on their Facebook page.

Speeding Up Production:

It is possible to speed up production in Hay Day by tapping the object. You will see the amount of time remaining in the bar at the bottom of the screen, and the cost of speeding it up represented by the diamond icon to the right. Click the lightning bolt symbol to confirm that you would like to spend those diamonds, if you have them, on rushing the production.


Coins are the everday currency in this game. You will use them to buy pretty much everything in Hay Day apart from the scarce, premium items which tend to give you an advantage, or set you apart from your friends’ farms. Fortunately, as they are needed so frequently (mainly to buy livestock and equipment for your farm), Hay Day’s Coins are easy to collect. It will take a long time before you have as many as you might want, but they are earned through most actions.

You get Coins primarily from selling the produce that your farm produces. While the main currency to buy with your actualy money will be Diamonds, you can also buy Coins should you be running low.

How to Earn Coins

The best and main way to earn Coins in Hay Day is to sell your produce. See the section of this guide entitled ‘Selling Your Produce’ for more information on that. You can also purchase Coins using real money, should you so wish, and buy other players’ items to sell on again later, hopefully for a profit!


Hay Day Guide


Game Introduction – Hay Day

Hay Day is a farming simulation game from Supercell in which you will build a farm, tend crops, and earn lots of money in the process. Making sure you have a farm that can cut the mustard can make all the difference in a game like this, but with our quick start guide you’ll have all of the tips, tricks and walkthroughs you’ll need to stay ahead of the game.

Quick Start Guide

Getting Started

Hay Day

  • To get playing Hay Day as quickly as possible, go ahead and click on the “Play Now” button at the top of this screen. The game is a free download, so there is absolutely no risk to trying it out for yourself.
  • You will need an active internet connection in order to play Hay Day, so make sure yours is stable before attempting to play the game.
  • Once you’ve started the game, an introduction video will play showing you what to expect from the game including the setting and goals.

Hay Day

  • Eventually you will meet Mr. Wicker, a scarecrow that will help guide you through the game and build your farm.

Building and Managing your Farm

Hay Day

  • At this point is where you will start building and managing your farm, so let’s go over how to do so.
  • One of the first actions we will need to learn how to do is harvest crops. To harvest crops, all you have to do is tap on them when they are fully-grown.

Hay Day

  • Once they’re fully grown, tap on one square of crop and then on the scythe icon that pops up.  You can hold on the scythe and then drag across the entire group of crops to harvest an entire group of crops at once.

Hay Day

  • Planting crops is done largely the same way. Tap on an empty plot, and then on one of the available crops. You can then drag the crop around the plots until all of the empty plots have seeds planted in them.
  • Once a crop fully grows, it will multiply the supply you own, so you will always be making money on each crop you plant. Always make sure to have crops growing, even if you won’t have time to harvest them for a while.

Hay Day

  • You can customize some of the buildings that are around the farm. The farmhouse can be painted by tapping on it, and then on the paint brush icon. Dragging the icon over the house will completely paint it, giving it a fresh look in the process.
  • You can then take these painting skills and use them in several of the buildings scattered throughout the farm. If you don’t like the color or look of some of the buildings, try painting them as an alternative.
  • Having barnyard animals on your farm is a crucial point of success, so let’s go over how to buy them.
  • There will be an animal pen located on your farm. Tap on it to access the animal store menu.

Hay Day

  • From here, there will be various tabs you can pick from with plenty of items to choose from.
  • In the animal section of the store, you can purchase several different types of animals including chickens, cows, pigs, sheep and more.
  • To buy an animal, tap on it in the store and then drag it to the animal pen. This will buy the animal and place it in your pen automatically.
  • Simply having animals is just one aspect necessary to keeping animals; you have to feed them to keep them around.
  • To feed animals, tap on the hut within the pen.

Hay Day

  • From there, you can tap and drag on the feed to feed it to your animals. When your animals are fed, they are more likely to produce eggs and be happier in the process.
  • Chickens will produce eggs for you, but it will take time to complete. If you do not wish to wait for chickens to lay eggs, you can speed up the process using Diamonds.
  • When the eggs have been laid, you will need to collect them with the basket. You can access and use the basket from the hut inside the pen just as you did with the feed and then drag it across the chickens to collect the eggs.
  • What you do with your crops and eggs is up to you, but one of the things you can do with them is create baked goods in the bakery. Let’s go over how to build a bakery that you can use to make more money for your farm.

Hay Day

  • Tap on the cash register icon in the bottom left corner of the screen. From here, you can tap on the buildings tab (third option down) and then drag the Bakery out to your farm.
  • Once the bakery has been placed, you can drag bread into it so that it can bake it and create XP and coins that will allow you to enhance your farm in the future.
  • If you ever get stuck and are unsure which action to complete next, you can always check back with Mr. Wicker. Mr. Wicker will often have helpful advice you can follow so that you can make sure you’re always making the best decision possible.
  • Another additional way to make money is via the delivery truck. The billboard that can be found on your farm will have orders available on it.

Hay Day

  • When you tap on the bulletin board, you can then tap on any of the available orders to complete. These orders will require you to have certain items on hand that you can then sell to your client.
  • In an example order, you must sell 3 eggs to a kindergarten. To complete an additional order, you’ll then need to wait for the delivery truck to come back first.
