I’ve been on hatchling level 3 for quite a while and have accumulated a lot of apples, 500+. I can’t find anywhere what the level 4 feeding requirement is and don’t want to upgrade just to find out.
I can’t for the life of me figure out how this is an advantage. The challenges & MEBC don’t seem any easier and every arena competitor I face has the same hatchling level so no advantage there either. So I was thinking of upgrading just to clear out my stash and see what happens.
Level 4 requires 50 apples. You can’t sustain that and eventually you need to spend money for apples. Level 5 is 100.
Thanks. I would never spend money for apples. I figure I could go 2-3 months at level 4 with my current stash, taking advantage of whatever extra powers that would result, then just let the little bugger go away.
The hatchling eventually becomes a “parasite” that starts eating your RL $$$.
Apples per level:
Level 1 – 5 apples/day. Level 2 – 10 apples/day. Level 3 is 25 apples/day (this is the max for most players). Level 4 – 50 apples/day. Level 5 – 100 apples/day (only Russian clans make it to this level).
Some have a misunderstanding of how the hatchlings work. Each level will increase your FP by 7- just like a hat set. A higher level hatchling does NOT make it easier to finish levels. It DOES increase your FP which aashould increase the score you get. M.
A level 800 player does not finish levels ‘easier’ than a player with a 400 FP. The 800 FP player will have a significantly higher score then the 400 FP for doing the same amount of ‘damage’ to the structures & piggies plus playing thru the same number of levels.
I hope this helps,

Yep, it does, thank you. Comparing the hatchling level to a hat set is especially helpful.
Maybe when I get the surplus of apples up to 2000 or so I’ll level all the way up and live in the Russian clan world for a while!Dezsike@dezsike
Each level onwards require 50 more apples. Level 6 is 150, level 7 is 200, level 8 is 250, level 9 is 300, level 10 is 350 and this is the maximum level. But you need to spend $100 per week to reach this far.
I kept my level 4 hatchling for about 7 weeks with a starting stash of 230 apples, so you could keep one for months if you have 500.
Buster Douglas, I bet you Mike Tyson nightmares to this day. LOL.
<p style=”text-align: left;”>I know the question was not for me but I will help you out in that leveling up your hatchling is 7 FPS increase for each level</p>
<p style=”text-align: left;”>”Was the power noticeable”. 7 FP will not increase your scores enough to notice. Personally, I would much rather have a legendary hat for 1 bird (10 FP) than a level 2 hatchling (14 FP).</p>
Here is an example: Lets say you start with a FP of 400 and do not have a hatchling at all.
<p style=”text-align: left;”>HATCHLING LEVEL FP no hatchling 400 FP</p>
Level 1 407 FP
Level 2 414 FP
Level 3 421 FP
Level 4 428 FP
All the way to level 10
Level 10 470 FP
*** Your other question: If your hatchling leaves, you have to start over with hatching a new one. You Start with the 24 hours wait for one to hatch. You don’t have to have one or can leave it at any level you choose.

I think my FP was in the 500s when I leveled up my hatchling to a 4. Obviously increasing FP by 7 doesn’t make a noticeable difference since it’s between 1 and 2 percent. I’m at FP 632/693 (without or with Stella) now so I’m just keeping my hatchling at level 3. The advantage is that I can feed it about 5 or 6 times a week, almost every day, and get 1500 feathers every time. I’ve been picking Stella feathers.
Level 4 should be 28 FP + your original 500’s (not specific) + Stella. If Stella is ~70 FP, then you have right at a 100 FP boost with the hatchling & Stella together.
Remember, the promotional +13 hats will be +3 only- very soon! Of course, buying the ones you are missing to complete your set will add 7 FP back.
Ah, okay. Good feedback. I had been trying to conserve apples by feeding every other day, which resulted in this surplus, which is now about 550. I like the idea of feeding more frequently to get extra feathers. That seems more productive than leveling up to 4.NAS@nas76
I’m in the same boat as you, during the last CvC I promoted my hatchling to 4, I have about 650 apples. By feeding it 50 apples every 48 hours I think I’m losing about 10-15 apples between feeds so it isn’t sustainable in the long term. I think that I will keep feeding it until it’s ready to go to level 5, play that for 48 hours and then let it die.
Hopefully by then I still have a handy pile of apples left.
Level 3 is the last sustainable level to keep accumulating apples.
I guess I should have explained more thoroughly. I was really just talking about the 7FP increase from a level 3 to a level 4 hatchling. Since that’s only a 1-2% increase for a lot of mid-level players, it’s not going to result in a very noticeable increase in one’s score. I would rather just keep a level 3 hatchling for the extra 21FP than have a level 4 hatchling for 28 more FP, especially with the rainbow feather award. Even if I could sustain a level 4 hatchling, I would definitely only be able to feed it every other day, giving me an average of 1000 feathers a day. I prefer to feed it 1500 feathers about 5 times a week, which gives a slightly higher average. It’s a moot point anyway since I can’t get 50 apples every other day.
Also, I had my hatchling at level 4 during the summer. That’s why I don’t remember what the exact FP was. I’m currently at 632 without Stella, so my base FP with no hatchling would be a 611. I don’t really know why you thought that you needed to explain all of that to me. Have a nice day!
I agree with you 100%. I keep mine at level 3 also as an additional 7 FP is not worth 25 more apples.
I am sorry. I did not mean to insult you by my post. I did explain it way beyond what was necessary.
I get questions from clanmates & others almost daily about the best level for hatchlings or what affect they have on your score. Maybe the post will help answer questions someone else may have.
