Prior to purchasing the Deluxe Coop upgrade, the maximum number of chickens a coop can hold before chickens stop breeding is 12.
Though many ranchers simply let their chickens roam the ranch, a coop is the tool of a serious poultry producer. Coops keep hens and roostros close, allowing for maximum egg-laying potential. Just remember to avoid crowding the coop: chickens won't reproduce when in close proximity to more than a dozen other hens or roostros. But give them room and watch the love bloom.

A special upgrade designed by Mochi Miles that doubles the number of chickens you can keep and moves elders out.
- The Spring Grass upgrade is stated to allow hens to produce eggs twice as fast. Instead, it grants chicks the ability to grow in three hours, rather than six. Egg production is unaffected.
- The Vitamizer upgrade is stated to allow chicks to grow into hens and roostros twice as fast. Instead, it grants hens the chance to lay two eggs instead of one. Chick growth rate is unaffected.
- This means that the Spring Grass upgrade functions as the Vitamizer, and the Vitamizer functions as the Spring Grass.
- The reference to "uprising" is likely a pun on the word "coup" which means uprising or revolt.
- A coop is not necessary to breed chickens; they can breed in the wild and free-range on The Ranch as long as a Roostro and any Hen Hen are in range. However, a fully upgraded coop speeds up the process.
- The TV in the Deluxe Upgrade sometimes shows something that resembles Jeopardy.
- The egg that covers Chickadoos are a temporary cover similar to the gel sac on Plorts when first produced. As such, it is still considered a chickadoo and is considered one when vacced.
- Two of the news screens on the TV resemble either Slimes, most likely, Pink, Tabby, Boom, Hunter, Tangle, and Tarr.
