Sims 4: Cottage Living DLC introduces new animals to the game including cows, chickens, and llamas. These animals can be fed treats to make them happier and can even change their appearance. Treats can be purchased from the Crumplebottom stall in the Finchwick district of Henford-on-Bagley, received as a reward for winning a Finchwick Fair competition, or received as a gift from wild animals.
Once a Sim feeds a treat to an animal for the first time, the Sim will learn the recipe to craft that treat. Animal treats can be crafted by interacting with the refrigerator and selecting "Create Animal Treats", then selecting which one you would like to make.
Certain treats will change the appearance of animals and give them interesting status effects. Here is the full list of treats with recipes and status effects included.

Evil chickens tend to lay obsidian eggs and can protect the property by attacking enemies, foxes, vampires, and the Grim Reaper. Rainbow cows will appear with multicolored splotches but does not seem to change any gameplay effects besides producing rainbow milk.
