Tips and tricks to keep your animals happy in LEGO Fortnite

Animal happiness can be maintained in a few ways such as assigning a villager to take care of them, grouping animals together, petting them, emoting near them, and feeding them Animal Treats. I've explained each of these methods in more detail below.

It is always better to assign a dedicated villager to care for the animals instead of manually caring for them. Doing this allows you to focus on other essential tasks and avoid the chores related to maintaining the animals, like feeding and maintaining the barn. So, assign a villager with traits like resource gathering and cooking to your barns. The particular villager will take care of everything and improve the quality of life of your animals, making them content.

Feed them Animal Treats

Indicative of its name, Animal Treats are special food for your animals. You can use them to tame or bring animals to your village and periodically improve their mood. I usually feed at least one Animal Treat every 3 to 4 days to every animal on my farm. So, if you feel that your animals are unhappy or bored, make some treats in your Grill and feed them.

Petting animals

Like real life, petting your animals in LEGO Fortnite will also improve their mood. Before leaving your village, pet every animal on your farm once every day or two. Doing this will create a bond and naturally make them happy. Go near them without any food in your hand to pet the animals.

Emoting in front of animals

Along with petting, you can also emote in front of animals to cheer them up and keep them happy. So, press B on your keyboard or D-Pad on your gamepad to open the Emote wheel. Choose the Emote of your choice to dance in front of your animals.

Building Interactable Structures

Building specific structures, like rugs, can also make your animals happy as they can sleep on it. Construct and place such items around the barn/farm area to keep your animals jubilant. Remember, do not overdo it; keep only one such item per animal.

From my observation, having a variety of animals or at least a pair of the same breed maintains the happiness level of the animals. So, keep as many animals as possible on the farm with multiple animals like sheep, pigs, and chickens.
