Buttercup is an awesome heir. In total, she had 15 eligible babies. We’re over a fourth of the way there (27!).
For Generation 2 for the Build Newcrest challenge, we put Buttercup in the Painter (Patron) career. She finished that so we tried one of the new “influencer” careers. Which is also topped. (I mentioned she was awesome, right?).
Like her mother, we had an odd mix of males and females, only this time skewed to male. Out of the 15 babies, four were girls and once again, despite being fertile and living on a ley line – lots of those babies were singles.
Our first four boys were all adorable creatures. Sage, Fennel, Cayenne, and Foxglove.
It was a lot of fun to watch the boys play together. They were great friends to each other and very helpful around the house.
Then came our twins Cotton and Indigo. I have a random color generator that I use to generate their “favorite” colors so I can dress them properly and tell them apart. Both Cotton and Indigo came up with Orange. (Sigh.) They’re not quite identical (eyebrows and mouth) – but only just.
Finally, after six boys, we had our first girls! And our first red-headed Flowers. I always have a soft spot for redheads. Daffodil and Dhalia. Sadly I knew they couldn’t be our heirs unless Buttercup stopped having kids a lot earlier than she needed to.
Then we returned to having boys. Dill and Tarragon, and then twins Saffron and Sesame.
I’m not opposed to having a male heir, but I thought I’d give Buttercup one more chance and she pulled through with triplets! Mint, Magnolia, and our heir Star.
The triplets are pretty cute, eh? The sad part of reaching the end of the generation is seeing everyone – especially Buttercup growing old. But she doesn’t seem to mind nearly as much.
And she’s got a large loving family who visit often.
Time for the next generation.
