The farming Winter Weekend says it'll give "more beans" for selling animals.

How many more beans? Preparation for this has gotten me somewhat obsessive, even though I know the amount I can sell is capped, I'm hoarding animals anyway and hoping to know what to expect. One thing's for certain: the 130 animals in my bank so far are getting claustrophobic.

10%? That's a lot less impressive than I was expecting. I only found out recently that info is available under the "Events" tab (It's been 6 months, I've forgotten stuff!)

My bank ran out of space and I finally started selling some of these. There's no way to sell more than roughly 36 small, 16 medium, and 8 large pets anyway over that weekend.

Found this timer though, which I will totally use to maximize that regardless of the fact that 10% bonus isn't mindblowing.

10 % more beans is equal to the bonus you get for having the master farmer outfit equipped - it's an extra and it is at least 200 more beans for each dragon sold.

As for your bank space problem - release surplus rabbits, chickens, sheep and cows - no reason to keep them - you can re-breed them so easily. If you're breeding more advanced animals bank space shouldn't be an issue anyway - and then those extra beans suddenly have some impact.

Also 12 large animals, not 8 - it's 6 per cycle.

You've calculated it wrong. The weekend begins at 12pm Friday and ends 12pm Monday in the UK, which goes through 3 daily resets. However, you can also get the bonus for the weekend on Friday, provided you sell after 12pm Friday but before 12am Saturday. Thus, it is actually 48 small (4 resets), 16 medium (2 resets) and 6 large (1 reset).

I have to agree here. I have no idea how players can run out of bank space from POF. The only reasons I can think of is that they're keeping fast breeding animals such as rabbits, chickens, sheep, etc, and they have a ton of junk in their bank. There's no legitimate reason to be hoarding junk, unless it's an ironman/woman account.
