Amaretto Barnyard Birds & Class

No Gravatar

Happy Friday Everyone! Hope everyone is having a good breeding day!

Today I would like to tell you about some of the the Amaretto Barnyard Bird, Exotic Birds and Class.

Farm Class

Amaretto Breedables all begin with the “Starter Breeds” that are sold in farmers and clutch packs as well as individual Hen or Rooster packs at all the Amaretto Barnyard Bird stores.
The Class stat classifies the bird’s stats.
They each come with possible hidden breeds and traits. The hidden breeds/traits may or may not be Non-Starter. When breeding new starters together, it is important to remember that the hidden breeds/traits may or may not drop in the first nest or even the last nest. You just never know!
Remember, once a starter always a starter.

Jester Class

The Jester Class does some amazing things to your Barnyard Bird. Benefits of Jester Class are:
Never go below 75% vivacity
The Jester Class CAN pass!

Bird of the Line Class

Bird of the Line Class does some amazing things to your Barnyard Bird. Benefits of a Bird of the line are:
They will never sleep!
They never go below 100% stamina.
They never go below 75% vivacity (Jester Class)
Bird of the Line also gets any traits from future classes released.
Bird of the Line CAN pass.

Romeo Class

The Romeo Class does some amazing things to your Barnyard Bird.
They never go below 50% vigor
The Romeo Class can pass!

Exotic Birds

Egghead Barnyard Bird
Rubber Chicken
Robotic
Egghead Noir
Egghead Rainbow

Exotic Birds are Special/Rare Birds that will give a gradual boost to the Vivacity of birds within 10 meters over a period of time
Exotic Birds are very special birds that can be born at random from ANY bird breeding combination.

Egghead Barnyard Bird

The Egghead is NOT able to pass their breed or eyes. However, you could get extremely lucky and birth another Exotic Bird.
When you breed an Exotic Bird (whether it is with another Exotic Bird or any other bird) you DO have an increased chance at receiving another random Exotic Bird.
The non-Exotic offspring of Exotic Birds do NOT have an increased chance of producing Exotic Birds.

Rubber Chicken

Exotic Birds are very special birds that can be born at random from ANY bird breeding combination.
Exotic Birds are NOT able to pass their breed. However, you could get extremely lucky and birth another Exotic Bird.
When you breed an Exotic Bird (whether it is with another Exotic Bird or any other bird) you DO have an increased chance at receiving another random Exotic Bird.
The non-Exotic offspring of Exotic Birds do NOT have an increased chance of producing Exotic Birds.

Robotic

The Robotic does NOT pass their breed or eyes. However, you could get extremely lucky and birth another Exotic Bird.
When you breed an Exotic Bird (whether it is with another Exotic Bird or any other bird) you DO have an increased chance at receiving another random Exotic Bird.
The non-Exotic offspring of Exotic Birds do NOT have an increased chance of producing Exotic Birds.
Egghead Noir

The Egghead Noir is NOT able to pass their breed or eyes. However, you could get extremely lucky and birth another Exotic Bird.
When you breed an Exotic Bird (whether it is with another Exotic Bird or any other bird) you DO have an increased chance at receiving another random Exotic Bird.
The non-Exotic offspring of Exotic Birds do NOT have an increased chance of producing Exotic Birds.

Egghead Rainbow

The Egghead Rainbow is NOT able to pass their breed or eyes. However, you could get extremely lucky and birth another Exotic Bird.
When you breed an Exotic Bird (whether it is with another Exotic Bird or any other bird) you DO have an increased chance at receiving another random Exotic Bird.

As an added twist to the Barnyard Birds the Exotic Birds that are Special/Rare Birds have the possibility of being found in the Starter Packs**

Happy Thursday Everyone!  I wanted to remind you all about something that happens at the Ranch every week …. the Picture of the Week contest!  This contest is fun and easy and everyone can enter.
To enter the Picture of the Week contest all you have to do is take a photo including your favorite Amaretto Breedable (Horse, K-9 or Bird). Once you have a photo that you are happy with (you can edit it, that’s allowed) upload the photo to SecondLife, make sure it is full perms and put it on a notecard with your name. All we ask is that you keep them clean, no nudity or profanity.

There are 3 locations to turn in your notecard:
The main Horse store:
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Amaretto%20Ranch%20Horses/93/146/22

The main Bird and K-9 Store:
