Peacocks grazing #
Peacocks of the Common, Red and Royal breeds can provide agricultural benefits in addition to their precious eggs. Once a season they can be released onto any plot of land prepared for sowing. The grazing process takes two days.
While grazing, peacocks eat insects, worms and other food, destroying pests and fertilizing the soil.
Important: you cannot put a peacock up for sale at a fair and put it out for grazing at the same time. First you need to complete one action, then start another.
Benefits of grazing #
You can get the following benefits from grazing peacocks:
- During grazing, peacocks feed on pasture without using up their grain reserves;
- grazing increases field productivity by up to 10% due to natural fertilizer;
- while grazing, peacocks continue to lay eggs as usual;
- Every 2 days of grazing extends the life of the peacock by 1 day.
However, while grazing, there is a small risk that the peacock may fall prey to the dragon. More expensive breeds have better protection against predators and have a lower risk of being kidnapped.

Number of peacocks on the field #
One or more peacocks of different breeds can be sent to each site. Moreover, their total value should not exceed 7 gold coins at face value.
By correctly calculating the number of fields and peacocks and creating a grazing schedule, you can do without feeding the peacocks with bread. At the same time, they will continue to produce products.
