I also have an issue with the counter, it wont register the numbers when I feed the adult goats. Stuck and cannot proceed to next part of the mission


Unfortunately, Zynga Support is the only one you can contact. Good luck.


who do I ask for my money back. I paid for a lot and nothing happened. The goats didn't go clear the field (lol) but the cash was deducted. I will try to contact Zynga but any other suggestions would be apreciated. thanks


First, make sure you are feeding non-Prized Goats. Prized Goats don't actually get fed. Instead, you take them to the fair. Prized Goats are the ones with blue ribbons over their heads when it's time to show them off.

If you are sure you are feeding non-Prized Goats, you can try the steps below to see if they fix the problem. If they don't, then your only option is to contact Zynga Support, explain the problem to them, and politely ask them to complete the tasks.

Good luck.

I have two missions waiting because the feed adult goat counters are not working. Any suggestions?


@Allan Light - Sounds like you have been playing the game over on Zynga's website. I would suggest trying to play it on Facebook and see if that solves the problem. If it doesn't, and you are sure that you have received more of each item than has been recorded, you will need to contact Zynga Support.



Thanks a lot Alan !!!
Now I can prepare better.. :)


I just started the Shady Trough and am unable to acquire more than 5 of 8 for each of the bedding or the shingles. Is anyone else having trouble getting more than 5 of these items and how can I get past this problem? I have been receiving shingles and bedding from zFriends and neighbors far above the 5 that is being shown. PLEASE HELP!!!
