If you’re looking to add a few new animals to your farm, keep reading to find out how to purchase animals in Coral Island, how to start caring for them, and how to make money from their produce.

Updated January 4, 2024 by Connie Watson: Now that the full release of Coral Island is out, it is time to update our guide on animal care. Here you’ll find everything you need to know about how to get animals, care for them, and how you can make money with animal products.


How To Get Farm Buildings For Animals

Coral Island: Buying farm buildings from the Carpenter

Before you can have any farm animals, you must first build them a place to live. You’ll need to gather the required materials and gold, then visit Dinda the Carpenter to purchase the farm buildings you want.

Building

Materials

Price

Coop Level 1

  • 100 Wood
  • 50 Stone
  • 5 Bronze Bars
  • 10 Fiber

2,000g

Barn Level 1

  • 200 Wood
  • 100 Stone
  • 5 Bronze Bar
  • 10 Fiber

3,000g

Stable

  • 50 Scrap
  • 200 Stone
  • 5 Silver Bars

15,000g

Each building will take two game days to complete, and then you can buy your animals.

While you’re working on getting your farm buildings, we highly recommend
building a silo
as soon as you can. It can
store up to 300 hay
and connects directly to your coop and barn through a hopper. To build one you’ll need
20 Scrap
,
300 Stone
,
two Resin
, and
2,500 gold
.

As you begin collecting animals, leveling up in your Ranching skill, and increasing the town’s rank, soon it’ll be time to upgrade your farm buildings so you can buy more animals.


Coral Island: Upgrading the barn

To upgrade your barn or coop, go to the Carpenter again and select Edit Farm Buildings. Choose which one you want to upgrade, then select the upgrade option. Once you have the required materials, purchase the upgrade, and in two game days, you’ll have your upgraded building.

Here’s what you’ll need to upgrade your barn and coop:

How To Care For Animals

Coral Island: Checking the Animal Book

Once the animals are on your farm, you will need to feed them daily and pet them to keep them happy.

The happier the animal is, the more likely it will produce larger and better quality products.

You can get hay by cutting grass with your scythe, but you can also buy hay from Jack at the Ranch, along with a few other things that will help with taking care of your animals:

Item

Cost

Use

Hay

30g

Feed this to your animals.

Milk pail

300g

Use this to collect milk from cows and goats.

Shears

400g

Available when you unlock sheep. Use this to shear wool from sheep or llamas.

Animal Medicine

300g

If your animal ever gets sick, give them this.

Animal Whistle

500g

Use this to call an animal to your side.

Temperature machine

600g

Put this in your Coop or Barn to regulate the temperature.

To see how happy your animals are, go to the back of the coop or barn and look at the Animal Book. It’ll show you the happiness level for each animal in that building.

How To Get Ranching Upgrades

Coral Island: Buying advanced equipment recipes from Ling

Once you get your town rank up to E, you’ll unlock recipes to buy from Ling at the Lab for advanced equipment that’ll make caring for your animals much easier.

How To Make Money With Farm Animals

All animals (except the horse) produce items that you can sell for some gold. Additionally, you can use them to craft artisan items like Mayonnaise or Butter, for even more income.

Equipment you’ll need to make some of the artisan items from animal products:

  • Mayonnaise Machine
  • Cheese Press
  • Mason Jar (Butter and Salted Eggs)
  • Loom
  • Oil Press

To get
higher quality products
from your farm animals, talk to
