A Sheep Pen is a building used for the storage and care of sheep. Sheep living in a pen will reproduce as long as there is at least one male and one female present. They will consume onions and produce dung.

Slaughtering attempts on sheep in a pen are always successful. Some players build a pen with no intent to hold sheep long-term, but merely as a place to slaughter sheep picked up in the wild.

In previous tales, a contagious disease affecting sheep called Pox caused sheep to die. Animal Husbandry 2 allowed the development of a cure, Sheep Supplement, which is made in a Kitchen.


This building becomes available after you have learned the Animal Husbandry tech. Requires Animal Husbandry 0 (Skill).
