Display Animal Age in Assign to Chain/Cage/Pasture Menus
« on: October 07, 2019, 11:12:33 am »

It would be helpful to know an animal's age when assigning them to various places.  Otherwise death by old age strikes much more unexpectedly than it should.  It doesn't have to be their exact age in years, even a young/adult/old descriptor would be sufficient.

In years? I think, in years and days will be better for giant rats and other pets with small lifetime.

The exact age would be ideal, but any indication of relative age would certainly be an improvement.

I second this suggestion! As someone who loves to have fortress livestock, this would help me decide on who to slaughter and when.
