Black Heart

First Event

Time: 11:00am - 4:00pm, Monday - Saturday

At enough friendship points, going to the Poultry Farm will trigger a cutscene where Rick and Popuri is arguing about their chicken, being killed by a stray dog.

Popuri then leaves to the Hot Spring. Talking to her would release an options. However, either you picked won't increase Rick's Points.

Purple Heart 

After expanding your Chicken Coop, Rick will come by to ask you to take care of their 5 chickens because of her mother's frail condition. Rick also offer to give you more Chicken Feed and claim all their chicken's egg.

Accepting the offer will make you obligated to take care of their chicken. At these days, the Poultry Farm will be closed. Rick will be back after some days and will take back all their chickens in your coop. If he mentions that their chicken is sick, he might lose points for you. Opposite if the chickens are healthy.

Green Heart

Putting at least one of your chicken's outside the coop before skipping the day will trigger the event the instant you went outside of your house. 

Rick will warn you that putting your chickens outside their coop without protection might be harmful for their health.

Yellow Heart

Going to the Clinic would trigger a cut scene of Rick buying a medicine for her mother. Saying that you hope Rick's mother's condition will be better will increase Rick's points for you.

Orange Heart

Going to the Inn would trigger a scene about Karen and Rick hanging out at each other. You may be choosing options. Choosing to hang out with them will likely to increase Rick's Affection to you.

Red Heart

Again, leave at least one of your chickens outside to trigger the last cut scene. Skipping the day would trigger the cut scene.

You will be woken up by yourself and going outside will let you see Rick protecting your chicken from harm from the Stray Dog. Then Rick will be bitten by the dog. Both of you will go to the Clinic and let Rick rest. Afterwards, he will ask you to marry him. If you accept, both of you will be married next week.
