Well I just wrote a whole reply, last sentence and accidently deleted it lol.
You made a good point about the crops, I only plant if something is running low to keep them all art 75 but it's a pain so makes sense. But being it will stay I'm in know rush, especially since I want to finish the mermaid quest.
As for where they go, my baby petting zoo/nursery I keep one of each animal in it so extras will be adopted out! So my doe might get a brother and sister and any others I have, or if I just have two that are a pair they can adopt one lol.
Kittens and dogs already have a daycare just for them so I'll have happy baby monsters adopted out to all kinds of animals
Clearly you can tell I am about making sections and fun areas in my place from the picnic area with tea to the haunted section. If only I didnt have to constantly store it to make room for events that involve high quantities of a building
