Breed
First select which farm animal you want to breed. You will then be able to choose what suits you best among all the farm animals available to breed.

The farm animals' species and coats will depend on that of their ascendants. The capacity (and the maximum level that can by reached without bonuses, items...) depends on the average of their ascendants' natural Selection Index and capacity.

Your animal will then need to wait 1 month before new farm animals can appear.

Don't forget on D-Day to perform the corresponding action (give birth). This action will cost you 200 farmz'. If you don't have that amount, you will lose 5 reputation points. If you forget to do the action, you will lose the new farm animals and 1 reputation points. If you perform this action but that your farm animal is not in a farm, you will lose 5 reputation points.

Your animal will be able to breed again but you must wait 3 months.
The progression stars
When a Purebred animal appears on Farmzer and has the best capacity among all the animals of its species, it wins a progression star.

This is a very prestigious reward, because it means it's the best animal of its species in the game!

It will stay this way until a new Purebred animal of the same species with a better capacity appears.

The number of progression stars awarded since they started playing appears on farmers' page.
Offer to breed
Breed with two farm animals allows new farm animals to appear with progressing capacities, this part of the game is as a result very important! If you are the farmer of the farm animal that agrees to breed, you will welcome new farm animals. If you are the farmer of the farm animal that just offer to breed, you will get farmz' corresponding to your offer and some of your farm animal's characteristics will improve!

Each farmer is free to set the ~~CARACTERISTIQUE[59][NOM]~~ according to his/her farm animal's characteristics and his/her capacity and natural Selection Index in particular. The higher these two characteristics are, the higher the ~~CARACTERISTIQUE[59][NOM]~~ will be.
Rewards for progression stars
Progression stars let you win farmz' ( 10 for each progression star), reputation points (1 for each progression star).

And finally, you get  1 for free every time you accumulate 30 progression stars.
Offer to breed
Choose one of your farm animals to breed. This offer will be published immediately and all the farmers will then be able to answer this offer with their animals.

You can also send a private offer to breed to a farmer: The farmer will then be able to accept or refuse your offer.

For each breeding done by one of your animal, you get farmz' and your farm animal's characteristics improve! If you want to offer to breed, this will cost you 0 farmz'.
Information to breed
Breed is the only way to make new farm animals appear with increasing capacities. There are always two farm animals that come into play, they are called the "ascendants" farm animals. The "descendant" farm animal is the result of this action.

The "ascendants" and "descendants" farm animals form together a lineage. If a lineage is made up of farm animals of the same and unique species, these farm animals are then called Purebred. If these farm animals have multiple species, then they are qualified as non-Purebred.

According to the average of the two ascendants' natural Selection Index, the new farm animals' capacity will be higher or lower than the average capacity of the ascendants. If the average of the two ascendants' natural Selection Index is equal to 50, the capacity will remain the same. However, if it is higher, the capacity will improve.

The higher the average of the two ascendants' capacities, the more the new animals will be able to soar!

To breed, you must have at least 1000 farmz', in addition to the price asked the animal's farmer. Otherwise, you may not be able to properly take care of your new animals.
Be careful, if you wish to breed but are not sure to have the means to properly play with the new farm animals, we recommend that you refrain from doing it ; there are already too many abandoned farm animals!
I want to breed, can I get a specific coat for my farm animal?
An algorithm randomly defines your farm animals' coat. However, note that it is still possible to get a specific coat if you choose farm animals who have the exact same coat and species!
How to breed in order to get better farm animals?
To breed in order to get a farm animal with a higher capacity, you must first find the ideal partner in the game! He/she must have a capacity and a natural Selection Index as high as possible.

Don't hesitate to choose the best farm animals by narrowing down your search as much as possible.


Remember that the descendants' species and capacities will depend on your choice: the higher his/her capacity and natural Selection Index are, the biggest will be the chances that your descendants have a higher capacity than their ascendants!
Send a private offer to breed
You can offer to breed to a particular farmer. You just need to indicate his/her username then to see his/her farm animals that are likely yo accept your offer.

Afterwards, you choose the farm animal that suits you best. The farmer will then receive an invitation for his/her farm animal that he/she can accept or refuse.
What are the links between the capacities and the natural Selection Index?
The natural Selection Index is an indicator which shows what a farm animal is really worth. The higher this indicator is, the more likely it is that the capacity of the new farm animals that you will get thanks to this farm animal will reach the top!

If the average genetic Index of two farm animals is 50%, then the new farm animals' capacity will stay the same! If it exceeds 50%, the more it nears 100%, the more the capacity will improve!

The two indicators are intimately linked and they are the ones that define, for the most part, the ~~CARACTERISTIQUE[59][NOM]~~ and selling price of the game's farm animals: the higher the capacity and the natural Selection Index are, the higher the prices will be! It's up to you now!
Natural Selection Index
A animal's natural Selection Index (or genetic Index) takes into account different criteria:
- the age of a animal;
- its number of wins in the agricultural fairs;
- the relation between its level and capacity.

The natural Selection Index of your animal is at 0% when it first enters the game. It's up to you to progress your animal to reach 100%!

Each of these criterion make up one third of the overall score. In other words, for the natural Selection Index of your animal to reach 100%, it must:
- be at least 2 years and 9 months old;
- have won at least 34 times in the agricultural fairs
- have a level equal to or greater than its capacity.
What determines your farm animal's species?
Your farm animal's species depends on the partners which will breed. Those two partners are called the "ascendants" and the new farm animals the "descendants". If both partners have the same species, the new farm animals will by default have the species of the partner which accepted the offer.

The "ascendants" and "descendants" form together a lineage. If a lineage is composed of farm animals of the same and unique species, these farm animals are then called Purebred. If these farm animals have multiple species, then they are qualified as non-Purebred. If you choose to cross species between two partners, The new farm animal's species will correspond to the majority percentage of the two partners.
How to increase my farm animal's capacity?
You can't increase your farm animal's capacity. It is only possible to increase the capacity of his/her lineage by choosing the right partners.
