I didn't see any mention of it else where but the stacks for some food items when dropped looks different. Bowls are stacked vertically and things on plates look like they're crisscrossed on one plate.
If you go to squeeze chickens that are under the influence of a chicken stick, they are unable to fly very far off the ground or run away with the speed and range that free-range chickens do. This makes squeezing stick-dwelling chickens much easier than the free-range variety.
Doing an auction search for "cubimal" brings up some interesting (albeit greyed-out) options, but so far I've been unable to put one up for auction. What can it mean? Why are only the commonest ones shown? Are cubimal auctions on the horizon?
The piggie/tree thing has been that way for several months at least...pretty sure it's been since at least late Jan/early Feb if not before; that was around the time I noticed it, if I recall. I think there was a bug forum post by players on this as well--called 'piggies starving' or similar?
I had a piggie tree once. Damn things get loud when they're ripe. And they grow like zucchini or dandelions -- I had to give away buckets of piggies everyday, and I still had tons of piggie left. I did look up a lot of interesting recipes, such as piggie brownies, piggie salad, and so on, but man, if I never see a piggie tree again, I'll be happy.
(Re: the shucking question: the herbs which always yield more than one flower at harvest [yellow, silver, and purple] have always [or for a long time anyway] yielded only 1 or occasionally 2 seeds when shucked.)
