Hay Day Guides: The Animal Shelters on the Farm

A simple guide to Animal Shelters on your farm!

Hay Day farms are havens for both working and non-working animals. You can purchase, and are sometimes given, animals you can use around the farm.

You need a place to keep the animals you have around the farm. These buildings are called Animal Shelters. Each shelter is a safe haven for a specific number of animals and costs a specific amount of coins.

Some of the different types of Animal Shelters are available more than once and the cost increases with each shelter you add.http://hiddenshadowsguides.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/hay-day-animals.jpg
