    This still will take hours to grind out but if you play Red's Mighty Feathers Egg Defender #1, you'll have unlimited birds plus it keeps track of the birds you've launched. All you have to do is fling away and leave the pig alone. Remember never to exit the game or back to zero you go.

    Mighty Hoax 5-17 is the place to grind this. You start with 7 Yellow ''Sniper'' Birds, and I calculated if you're fast enough, you will sling 26 in a minute, so it should take less than an hour. With few breaks here and then it should still be around 1 hour since I calculated 26 birds x 60 min are way more than 1000 birds, it's actually 1500.
    Just make sure to send them backwards if you don't like the screen to go far away from the level (become bigger). If you send them forward the screen will follow and you will use more time because you will have to go all the way back to the next bird.

    But I suggest going for 3 stars for the cheevos first, then you should have just a few 100's left so, I guess the grinding would be like 20 min or so, depends how good/bad you are getting 3 stars and how many birds you have slinged to beat the levels. If you want a quick guide for 3 stars I would recommend angrybirdsnest.com, they have all episodes. So yeah, hope this helps, and good luckclap

    Mastah Ghostthis achievement is bugged for me as well as 5 , 15 and 30 hours of gameplay.
    The game doesn't save progress, so when you turn of the game you start from 0.
    I left my phone for 30 hours to get those achievements and had to play 5-17 map 715 times in one go in order to get Bird Slinger achievement. So If you are 100% sure you have more than 5000 than you will probably need to do this without exiting the game.
    You can pause the game and your screen can go dark but but can not exit the game.
    I hope this helps.

    HolyHalfDeadThis game would crash on startup after getting this achievement, so they released a patch in May 2013 that prevents progress towards this achievement from being saved. This means you have to get this achievement without quitting the game.

    Grinding isn't fun so I automated this. If you're familiar with AutoHotkey, this solution is for you.

    Compile the following script:
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    What to do:
    1. Create an empty file named birds.txt in the folder where you compiled the script.
    2. Run Project My Screen app in fullscreen windowed mode.
    3. Plug your phone to your computer (ofc agree to file transfer and screen sharing), run Angry Birds and run Poached Eggs 1-2 (there are five red birds).
    4. IMPORTANT: zoom out the view in the level to the maximum!
    5. Execute the script.

    What it does:
    It just shoots all the 5 birds (in a way that level won't complete) and resets the level and so on. Every five birds number 5 is appeneded to the txt file so you can track your progress. Just count the number of written fives (in notepad, MSWord or an online tool, whatever) – when it reaches 1000 the journey is complete. To break the script, press Escape.

    Leave it running for the night as it will take almost 5 hours.
