Golden Chickens can be obtained by incubating a Golden Egg in a Coop. These eggs have various sources but are available in the video game’s  later stages. Golden Chickens produce eggs daily with a selling price of 500g to 1,000g depending on their quality.
These can also be turned into Mayonnaise, with their quality always being gold. However, the selling price for the egg is higher than its Artisan Goods version.
Ducks, though less common, produce Duck Eggs every 2 days. These eggs sell for around 95g to 190g each depending on quality, and can be used to create Duck Mayonnaise which is sold at higher prices.
Duck Feathers, which occasionally ducks drop, is also a valuable profit. Ducks can be bought at Marnie’s Ranch for 1,200g each.
Rabbits don’t produce edible items but provide Wool every 4 days, which can be made into Cloth using a Loom. They may occasionally drop Rabbit’s Foot as well, which sells for around 565g to 1,130g, making it a great source of income.
Rabbit’s Foot is also a popular gift among the villagers. Rabbits are purchased at Marnie’s Ranch for 8,000g each.
Dinosaurs are hatched by placing a Dinosaur Egg, an artifact, in the Incubator. They produce eggs every 7 days that sell from 350g to 700g each depending on their quality. Dinosaur Mayonnaise is the most expensive mayonnaise, selling at 800g each.
It’s best to incubate the first DInosaur Egg you get than to donate it to the museum, as you can always get another one to donate.
