Its probably a bit early for many people to know this, but what is the most optimal way to utilize the collector? I was reading that the pen must be full before the collector will store excess animals. Does this mean the best way to do it would be to have 2 breeder sets, or does she only collect if there is 1 breeder set and 2 eggs/child animals in the pen.

I imagine the later option is the correct way to do it because it would almost be like you had double the chance to breed if you could put 2 breeder sets in the pin and then all the eggs go to the collector.

Thanks for any responses/feedback about this.

No one knows how the breeding code works. It is obvious that 1 male and 1 female will breed as normal, but what happens if you have 2 males and 2 females in the breeding pen?

Three things could occur:
1. Both pairs will breed as normal
2. Only 1 pair will breed as normal
3. The 2 males or the 2 females could try and adopt an animal

I think the safest way would be to have 1 male and 1 female breeding pair, and then have 2 other animals of younger than adult age, but have the 10 bean babysitter(s) applied to the breeding pen so that they won't interfere with the breeding process.

That's not a bug. You can have 4 animals in the breeding pen.

then shouldn't they say that when buying the farmhand or at least when you hover cursor over them
edit* seems i glanced over it to fast on front page seeing the changes to other farmhands from stream info.

Make sure your breeding pen is full, if there's empty spaces it'll fill those up on your next visit and nothing more. But if it's full and you go away and come back the collector should work and have a bunch extra.
