  • Where: Grocery Store
  • When: 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM, (except Sunday)
  • Pay: 180G, free egg

You help Ronald by taking care of his Chickens in the coop outside. He will give you the chicken feeds. All you just need to do is to feed each of the chicken and collect their eggs. There are a total of 6 eggs you need to collect. After calling it a day, Ronald will pay you 180G and will give you free egg. This free egg that he will give you can be useful early in the game because you can place it in the incubator at your own Chicken coop in your farm and after 3 days, the egg will hatch. This let's you avoid having to buy your first chicken from Bob's Ranch Store!
