FarmVille English Countryside: Build and expand the Sheep Pen

One of the most hotly anticipated new features in the English Countryside expansion in FarmVille is the ability to breed sheep. You'll receive two free, plain white sheep (not specifically Ewes or Rams) for free when you start working on your second farm, but if you'd like to jump into Sheep Breeding itself, you'll first need to build the Sheep Pen in which to house them.

The Sheep Pen is available to purchase from the store for 5,000 coins. For that price, you'll receive just the frame, which must be built up with building materials: 10 each of Wooden Boards, Nails, and Bricks. Most of you will have saved up more than enough of these materials in preparation for your trip to England, but if not, you can meet us behind the break for a guide on how to earn more building ingredients, and how to continue your work on building the Sheep Pen.

Once you build the Sheep Pen, you'll have a new building that can hold 20 Sheep, Ewes, or Rams by default. This building can be expanded twice, adding 10 more storage slots with each expansion, to a total capacity of 40 sheep. Both of these expansion require more building ingredients for the last, but remember, expanding right now is an entirely voluntary process. Once you have room to store 20 sheep, you can freely use those extra building ingredients to build things like the Horse Stable or Garage.

If you choose to expand, your first expansion of the Sheep Pen requires 15 each of Wooden Boards, Nails, and Bricks, while the second (and final expansion as of this writing) requires 20 of each part.

Here's a rundown of where to get extra building ingredients, should you not have enough on hand (or have used them elsewhere):

- Purchase them for 1 Farm Cash each
- Click on the "Ask for Part" button and send individual requests to friends for ingredients
- Open Special Delivery Boxes which can contain the parts you need
- Look out for wall posts from your friends that share excess building parts as they complete their own buildings on their farm(s)
- Have friends send you these ingredients from the free gifts page

While you can use your Sheep Pen just a storage building, remember that you can also use it to breed sheep. We'll have a full guide on that feature for you in the near future, so keep checking back. Check our full guide to Sheep Breeding right here.
