Rick is Popuri’s older brother and works at the PoPoultry Ranch.
His birthday is on Autumn 27th. If you set your farmer’s birthday on the same day, his birthday will be on Autumn 23rd instead.

As you continue to raise your friendship points and heart level with Rick, you can unlock heart events that allow you to get to know him better.
During the cutscene, your farmer will have to respond with one dialogue option. Choosing the correct response will give you 3,000 LP with Rick, otherwise you will lose -2,000 LP.
Below is a list of each heart event and the requirements needed to trigger them.
|Heart Event||Love Points Required||Location||Requirements||Correct Dialogue Option|
|Gray (1)||0 LP||PoPoultry Ranch (1st floor)||
||“They’re most eggcellent!”|
|Gray (2)||5,000 LP||PoPoultry Ranch (1st floor)||
||“About three days!”|
|Purple||10,000 LP||PoPoultry Ranch (1st floor)||
||“You’re not boring me at all.”|
|Blue||20,000 LP||Inn (1st floor)||
||“Would you? Thanks.” or “What a gentleman! Yeah, sure.”|
|Green (Confession)||30,000 LP||Any location||
|Yellow||40,000 LP||PoPoultry Ranch (1st floor)||
||“You’re doing your best, babe.”|
6 friendship notes with Popuri
6 friendship notes with Lillia
||“Let’s both keep at it.”|
|Red (Marriage)||60,000 LP||Any location||
Remember that you can only view a heart event once you’ve successfully seen all the previous ones, so make sure you’ve checked every single one on the list!
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.
