|Raise up to 20 slimes. Fill water troughs and slimes will create slime balls.|
|Build materials:||Stone (500) Refined Quartz (10) Iridium Bar (1)|
|Animals:||Slimes (any color)|
The Slime Hutch contains 4 water troughs which can be filled by the player in order for the Slimes to produce Slime Balls.
Slimes in the hutch will still attempt to hurt the player by jumping at them; obtaining the Slime Charmer Ring will prevent damage and debuffs from the slimes.
Occasionally slimes will drop Slime Eggs. These can be used in the Slime hutch to hatch into slimes. There are currently 4 kinds of Slime Eggs which will hatch into their respective slime colors: green, blue, red, and purple.
Sometimes, a Female slime might mate with a Male slime (which have the round antenna). If both slimes show a heart, they will create a baby slime (same HP as the parents, half the size). One might have a heart and the other an exclamation mark, which means the latter refused the advances of the former.
- Placing a Wicked Statue inside the slime hutch prevents the Witch from cursing it.
- It's possible that a Wood Lamp-post or Iron Lamp-post placed within 2 tiles of a slime hutch will blink in a spooky way. The conditions for this occurrence are unknown.
Safe Farm for Slime Hutch
One can arrange statues / other pathway blockers to isolate the slimes while still being able to collect the Slime Balls. The trapped slimes are still able to reproduce, and hatched slimes will also be in isolation. A copper or steel upgraded Watering Can can fill the water troughs without entering the isolation area (although the copper Watering Can can would only fill 3 of the 4 troughs depicted in the example image below). Slimes do not need to reach the water source, so enclosing them anywhere will do.
