Laxative is an Item that can be found within common locations, including choice enemy Camps, given by Spouses, and rarely as a reward from Seasonal Festivals. Upon being picked up, all of the player's current and future Farm Animals will sometimes drop free Fertilizer on the ground on the Farm. This effect applies to all kinds of Farm Animals. They will do this in addition to the Fertilizer that can obtained from the normal above their heads. The rate Farm Animals will provide this Fertilizer is periodic and only awards a single piece at a time.
Compared to other means of gathering Fertilizer, Laxative rewards one of the lowest amounts of Fertilizer per action completed. Other means like Fraidy Fert or Mysterious Flower grant significantly more Fertilizer per their respective actions. In addition, Laxative's success is relative to the amount of Farm Animals the player has. Should the player not have very many at once then Laxative's effects may be felt only minimally. In this regard, Avian Placenta is similar, due to its success orienting around the player's amount of Chickens or Turkeys they have. In this sense, Laxative may be more versatile, due to working with all kinds of Farm Animals rather than specific ones. However, Chickens and Turkeys can be collected in much more abundance than other Farm Animals should the player have Fertile Eggs, giving Avian Placenta an advantage in that regard. Furthermore, Avian Placenta rewards much more Fertilizer per action completed than Laxative does. Likewise, all Farm Animals can already give Fertilizer through the over their heads. As such, should the player have the option between Laxative and other means of gathering Fertilizer they may want to take those other means instead.
