When nourished every day, sheep will maintain weight or improve it (an average of once every three days).
Sheep ranchers are encouraged to join The Sheep's Owners and Weavers Guild (SOW).
The following are the available weights:
Every three days (or every day, or any day...) sheep can be sheared for wool. Every single day a sheep gains 0.5 of wool on their pelt. They can be slaughtered for hides at any point in their life, preferably near the end. You can not slaughter or shear sheep without a knife in your home.
Remember that if this is a second field, your yields will be lower (approximately 3/4 of a full yield).
It is recomended that you hire one with decent intellegence, to get a reasonable amount of wool
Proposed sheep cycles Edit
Proposed sheep cycle one
Day 0: buy all sheep
Day 3: shear (get 6 balls of wool)
Day 6: shear (get 6 balls of wool)
Day 9: shear (get 6 balls of wool)
Day 11: slaughter one sheep
Day 12: shear (get 3-4 balls of wool)
Day 13: slaughter a surviving sheep (if there are any left. (an average of 3 hides))
(Sheep start dying on day 8 on average, so with this cycle, you may not get many hides)
Proposed sheep cycle two
Day 0: buy two sheep
Day 1: buy two more sheep
Day 2: shear (get 3 balls of wool)
Day 3: just feed
Day 4: just feed
Day 5: shear (get 6 balls of wool)
Day 6: just feed
Day 7: just feed
Day 8: shear (get 6 balls of wool)
Day 9: slaughter one sheep (get 1-3 hides)
Day 10: slaughter a sheep (get 1-3 hides)
Day 11: shear (get 4 balls of wool)
