The Slime Incubator is a machine that hatches Slime Eggs into actual Slimes. One incubator comes with the Slime Hutch and will produce slimes that live indoors. You can raise slimes outdoors by crafting a slime incubator yourself. Eggs take 4000 minutes (approximately 66.66 hours, or 2-3 days) to incubate. The Coopmaster Profession cuts this time in half.

Incubators outside the farm

It is possible to place chests and other crafted items outside the farm. Chests are useful for storing gifts close to the homes of Villagers who prefer them or to allow additional storage when Mining, Fishing, or Foraging. Worm Bins can be placed near fishing spots, Furnaces can be placed at the entrance to The Mines, or entire sections of the Valley may be utilized for Keg or Preserves Jar processing.

If a villager walks through the square where a crafted item was placed, the item will be destroyed. Below are player-created maps to indicate which tiles on the map are safe from villager-pathing.
