I repeated this process two or three more times and, in the end, I had 212 rabbits, not 250! Will the missing rabbits come back? And if they do, will they appear on their original farm (A River Runs Through It), on their new farm (Lone Tree and a Pond 2) or in their hutch on the new farm?
Ajmiz,
I moved your post to the subject thread about animals.
First you should have moved the rabbits directly to storage from the hutch and not put them on the farm.
When you moved them to storage did it show 250 rabbits in storage before you put them in the hutch?

The remaining rabbits will probably show up on the original farm. Try unchecking everything for Show in your preferences, go to the original farm and see if you find any rabbits as animals are not hidden when you do that.

I was going to fill chicken coop with ostrich on farm 33. So bought 113 to fill it, put them on the farm without looking what was happening prior to putting them in the coop but I cant see them I know they are there I've checked that. The farm is a little layered but I haven't had had this problem with any of the others.
Is there any way round this without removing stuff or do i just leave them and put up with the farm maybe loading slower.

Hi kevat508,

Adding anything to a farm that is layered just adds to the risk of losing things.

Clicking in the same spot without waiting for it to show up, can cause you to be charged for something but not actually get it. With animals it's always best to find a clear spot on a farm where there is nothing else there and try not to be tempted to buy too many at a time before you store them.

When you add animals to a farm that has layered items on it, especially if you're not waiting for the animal to finish loading and just carry on clicking, if you happen to be clicking where there is a layered item or clicking in the same spot where you may have already clicked, a few of things can happen.
  • If the animal doesn't show up where you were clicking once the saves have finished, it's because the game wasn't able to place one there so it will try to place it in the next available space it can see which could be all the way over to the edges of a farm or underneath something else
  • it may just not have loaded the graphic for it.
  • you could have lost it due to trying to place too many items in the same location.

So the best thing to do now, is to hide everything in your preferences, then reload the game and go back to that farm and see if any more show up for you. Those that it was able to set down should then show up for you somewhere on the farm. If you bought them in rapid succession you may need to reload that farm more than once for the rest to show up.

If you find any that you can't click on to move to the animal shed or to storage just use the yellow hand to move the animal to another spot on your farm and then it should allow you to click on it. Animals can get stuck when placed on layered items, especially crops/fields. If the fields are not planted, you may find it easier to plant them then hide everything, then reload and see if they show up.

Also check your storage and make sure none ended up in there.

Ok kevat508,

See if any more turn up over the next few times you go to that farm, or perhaps tomorrow, if they don't I'll take a look, we might be able to clear the loose invisible animals, but if we do that it would also delete any other loose coin bought animals on the farm as well including any decorative ones from the animal section of the store, and you don't get the coins back for those.

It won't delete any that are in their animal sheds or any FC animals you may have.

If you would like us to try that, we will need the link to that specific farm please.

Just had the fish harvested on the farm and 107 ostrich appeared and search says that's them all. Only lost 3. Thanks again for the help. I should have waited instead of wasting your time.

Hi loadnsassymommaCollar,
Yes you can sell them. When you are in Trading market and selling, click on the Item storage tab and then select Animals for the filter.
