Raising your chickens and gaining love points with them will earn you some bonus LP with Rick. After all your chickens collectively reach an average of 6 hearts, you’ll earn 2,500 LP for each succeeding average heart level (until you get 10 hearts with all the chickens).

Rick is also a marriage candidate, and being friends with him will give you access to PoPoultry on Sundays.
