Regarding the quote below, I take this to mean that even if I have no room on my farm for animals, I can take the sheep/animal action/s (and whatever animals are there) and cook the animals immediately using one of the fireplaces/ovens into food.
For example. I have a farm with 1 sheep in my house and no pastures or stables. But I do have a fireplace. There are 10 sheep sitting around on the sheep action. So I take the sheep action and immediately cook them all into 2 food each. Is this right?
This quote below is from the "common mistakes..." thread.
-With a Fireplace or Cooking Hearth, animals and vegetables can be converted to food at any time, even immediately after they are taken from the board. The only limit is that animals cannot be made into food during the Breeding phase of the Harvest. Thus, a player could take animals for the sole purpose of cooking them immediately (a player can even take animals and simply let them all go if he does not have an improvement to cook them or room to place them on his farm).
