Buying All Animals in Sims 4 Cottage Living

How To Buy A Barn Or Coop

Sims 4 Buy Coop

The first step you have to take before you can buy animals for your Sims is buying a home for them. You will need to buy a barn if you want cows and llamas, or a coop for chickens. Simply head over to Build/Buy mode like you do to buy anything for your lot and go to the section titled “Outdoor Activities.”

There you will find a barn and a coop. Keep in mind that you can only have one animal per barn, so you will need a couple if you want both a cow and a llama.

How To Buy A Chick, Chicken, Or Rooster

Sims 4 Buy Chickens

If your Sim is looking to raise chickens and have some farm-fresh eggs, make sure to first place a coop on their lot. Then, simply click on the coop and select “Purchase Chickens” to see your options. You can get different colored chickens as well as chicks and roosters!

How To Buy A Cow

Make sure to buy a barn before considering cows for your Sims. After you’ve done so, you just have to click on the barn and “Purchase Cow” to see which colors you can choose from. There are a few different colors, so be sure to pick your favorite cow.

How To Buy A Llama

Much like with the cows, your Sims will need to have a barn on their lot before they can buy a llama. Once they do, you can click on the barn and “Purchase Llama” to pick out your fave one. Make sure to choose the one that looks the best to you. These guys are temperamental, after all, so you’ll want to be their best friend.
