The Clucking Machine: Clues and Clarification!

To help you in your quest, we'll reveal some choice tips on how to get your 10 golden eggs... and MORE!

Hola, amigos!

(For those who are somehow not yet aware, the game itself is explained here.)

GG fellas, but some of you are lagging a bit and barking up the wrong trees for the hidden golden eggs. They say to leave no stone unturned, but some of you are practically flipping our desks. Yes, it is the principle of hunting, but you've broken us a bit so we're ready to give you some tips, Riddler - style.


Submitting an FML that talks about eggs or Easter (or anything else) will NOT win you an egg. It does nothing more than make the moderators grumble (not just us, but regular users too). *insert shameless plug for the moderation page / rankings* Moderating is fun! Woohoo!


If you don't have the FML app, download it and log in. You'll get 50 eggs just like that! Yeah, seriously. If you have it already, just log out and then log back in. Boom: 50 eggs for you too. Magical, right? (Thing: Don't forget that your baskets max out at 100 eggs! It may be unwise to collect the app eggs without cashing in some of your surplus first.)


The Chicken Radar will now be less responsive because y'all are stealing that hen at mind-blowing speed. Wave goodbye to the profile picture of the chicken... It's gone now, so stealing from other players will be trickier. You'll have to work a bit more to find out who's got a chicken (by spotting the "steal the chicken" button on their profile, for example). An extra tip: as the chicken lays eggs on the hour, it's better to nab it at 3:59 than at 16:01!

Blue's Clues?

For the rest, the clues are too easy. Random even. We'll follow-up with the fact that we're not necessarily at the top since there are no photos of when we partied this weekend for one of our birthdays. That's not the way we're going to get a badge, though. We'll have to go read the rules again.

Score-Based Daily Bonus Eggs

As the competition goes on and scores climb higher and higher, the bonus eggs dry up. For those who aren't at the tippy top, that kind of sucks. For that, Fleox is again upping the stakes. Pleased? Go hug him! Displeased? Go suck an egg. (I'm kidding, of course. I just wanted an excuse to use that phrase.) Anyway, the new scale is as follows:

  • If you have between 0 and 10,000 points, you get 30 eggs.
  • If you have between 10,000 and 20,000 points, you get 15 eggs.
  • If you have more than 20,000 points, you get 0 eggs. Nothing. Nada. Sorrynotsorry.

The Winners

As for the winners, everything will be announced at the end of the game. Be patient, friends. We're giving out a mug and gift card each day along with everything else, so we're not publishing a daily list. Ain't nobody got time for that. All we be revealed in the end!

That's it for the game news of the day. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask below!

PS: Fleox says it's only possible to get 2 of the 10 golden eggs through the app. Have you found this to be true? I'm usually on desktop myself. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If for whatever reason you don't get the app notification, from what i can tell you can only see if you still have your chicken by going to your profile. The usual "steal the chicken" button instead says "You have a Chicken".

Yep - thanks Violat3r! I just tried and it worked. To whatshername?! - I'll send you a screenshot so you can see for yourself.

I did try logging out and back in again. When I started the most I ever had in my cart was around sixty from finding the eggs (and before I had downloaded the app). I understand if there's nothing to be done, but wanted to bring that to your attention.

same problem here

  yotsu  |  14

Same. It's frustrating.

What sort of phones are you using? Android or iPhone? I tried it on my iPhone this morning and it credited me the eggs. Send us a message to [email protected] or send me a PM if you want.

I received my bonus eggs the first day, but I haven't received them since. I'm only at 7000 points. Do I need to log out and log in everyday? Same with getting the app, never got those bonus eggs

  Vaella  |  16

Yeah me too only the first day did i get any for that. I thought when i read that today was i needed to hug the guy for it to work. But Cali said that wasn't it.

Seems like we aren't getting what we are supposed to. I wonder if its just a few people or everyone?

Bonus eggs should come automatically, but bonus eggs for those with over 4,000 points just went into effect today (same with the 50 app eggs). If you think there's a problem with your account feel free to email support @ fmylife . com for more help!

Is there a badge for guessing how many more arbitrary rule changes will be enacted? Anybody who had a strategy is adversely affected, yet again. The only people being rewarded are players spamming f5 to refresh the site to find the random single egg. If the product wasn't ready for roll out, why rush it? FML members are nothing but guinea pigs -- we knew this from the start -- but not you're increasing the number of irritated guinea pigs.

  Alan  |  49

Hey, Druu, chill out man. It's just a game. The changes make the game fun, and fair for all. It's not a mandatory game, and the f5 people need to get a life. Or they need to be commended for their tenacity. The guinea pigs part is sort of true, in that we intend on doing more competitions with big prizes on them, and we're pretty new to giving out expensive stuff, so it's like sex, the first time isn't going to be amazing but it's still worth giving it a try! And who knows, you might win something, man. Don't give up hope!

Do you have an older phone or an old version of the app? Was your egg basket already full? If everything is up to date and empty and you still have no bonus eggs, send me a message or send an email to: support @ fmylife . com

@Alan, I cannot reply to you in the chat thread, so here's a new post:

I speak for the people! Vive la revolucion! My comment hasn't been downvoted to oblivion quite yet, so at least some people feel similarly. I went over the rules again, and see that the rules of the contest are subject to change. I'm just curious whether the new rules were ever deposited with the bailiff per Article 7? It's a wild goose chase for updated rules on the site, which would adversely affect the newest players that the changes are supposed to benefit.
Speaking for myself now: Apt analogy, but you're not really my type. Let's just be friends, Alan. :D
