Since they breath anything it's very sustenable. Can you help on how many i need to kill each turn for 20 dupes? I haven't done pufts for a very long time so there's a chance my math is wrong, but the same calculation matches up with my hatch numbers so I think it's accurate. 5 pufts should be able to feed 2 dupes barbecue forever. (1 puft laying an egg approximately every 5 cycles, 2 pufts worth of meat makes 1 4,000kcal barbecue so 1 puft feeds 1 dupe for 2 out of every 5 cycles.) This is approximate due to not all pufts will be happy all the time (grooming delays), replacing dead pufts, and the inevitable puft prince shenanigans. The key to this is that it takes time to get going as most of us don't incubate the extra eggs, just the ones for the ranches. We tend to drop excess eggs in water and just let them drown upon hatching. If you want to incubate everything, it'll produce meat sooner, but ultimately just at the same rate. Note: Since I mentioned it, a full stable of 8 hatches will feed 5 dupes. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
