Silver Lakenvelders

Amaretto likes to base some of their breeds on real animals. In this case they used the Lakenvelder chicken. Also known as “Shadow on a Sheet,” Lakenvelder chickens are as beautiful as they are useful. In Dutch, their name translates to ‘white spread over a black field;” with laken meaning sheet and veld meaning field. This is a wonderful description of these stunningly white birds accented by their black hackles and tails. They’re an attractive breed of chicken with blue legs, deep red eyes, and long flowing tails.

The breed is found only with a single, medium-sized comb that, for hens, stands uniquely erect. The history of Lakenvelder chickens is a bit clouded, but reveals an ancient lineage. The breed may have been developed in southern Holland, just over the German border. The Dutch painter Van Gink wrote that as far back as 1727, the breed could be found near the village of Lakervelt in the southeastern corner of Holland. The breed’s first appearance in poultry shows was in 1835 in West Hanover.

Lakenvelder chickens are noted for egg production; their porcelain white eggs being quite plentiful and nicely shaped. They are great foragers, very active, and vary wary. Their active and wary nature is not unlike that of the Leghorn chicken breed. Lakenvelders have delicious tasting meat, though they are not plentifully fleshed with males weighing 5 pounds and females 4 pounds. Lakenvelders are a non-broody breed of chicken.

On Dec.18,2015 Amaretto wanted to celebrate Christmas with some 2015 Holiday Edition Barnyard Birds.
These 2015 Holiday Edition Barnyard Birds have a chance at getting the eyes as well as hidden surprises from any breeding.

The hidden Surprises was the Silver Lakenvelder!!!

Gobble…Gobble!!

In 2017, Amaretto had a Random Drop for Thanksgiving, this could only drop for 24 hours on Thursday, November 23rd 2017. It was the amazing 2017 Thanksgiving Horn of Plenty, which was released for Horses, K-9s, Barnyard Birds and Ponie Pals.

All four of these were amazing so let’s take a look at them:

The coat/style/breed could not pass but the amazing eye could. And on the K-9s the collar also had the ability to pass. Here are the eyes that could pass:

And finally here is the collar that could pass from the K-9.

The coat/breed/style cannot be breed now but you might get lucky and find someone selling one someday. However you can get your hands of those eyes and collar and see what creations you can make.

Have fun everyone!!

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the start to your weekend and having an amazing day!

Today the spotlight is shining on the Amaretto Haven Horses.

Amaretto Breedables offers a reward system called Horse Haven. When you send your Horse to Horse Haven you will receive a number of points based on the number of traits and age for a particular Horse. Once you have accumulated enough points, you can use these points to purchase an array of items from the Horse Haven Vendor such as Pet Food, Healing Kits and our unique Horse Haven Horses.  You can read more about Horse Haven on the wiki https://horse.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=Horse_Haven

Let’s take a look at these beauties that are currently available to us!!

So how do you get one of these? You can go to any Amaretto Horse store and get your favorite by using your Haven Points. Each of these are available at a cost of 250,000 points. Time to get on over to one of the stores and pick up your favorite today!! https://amarettobreedables.com/pages/locations

Don’t forget by breeding any of these beauties to any other horse you get a slightly increased chance of getting a Charmed and additionally breeding any haven donkey to another horse you could get a mule!

Until next time this is Snookie hoping you have a terrific weekend and an even better week ahead!

Happy Breeding!

Home on The Range

Lets talk a litle about range. What is it? Range is the distance your Amaretto Breedable can reach for food and breeding. The default setting they’re born with is 5 meters, but using the menu, you can change that to a higher number if you need to.

To change the range using the menu, hit settings>set range and you will see a notice in local chat like this “Clyde Wind: Say the range value you want in local chat.” Remember to be in chat range or shout if farther away and you will see a notice like this ” Clyde Wind: Scan range set to 5 from home.” Or whatever number you choose. You can select anywhere from 1 meter to 96 meters, although in my opinion 96 meters is too far. Remember your horse will need to be in range of food/salt in order to prevent it from getting sick and its mating partner in range in order to breed. Think of the range as a circle, and whatever can get inside that circle or touch it’s edges can affect your horse.

So if you set the food inside, the horse can reach it whether it is on movement or not. Also even if your horse is on a certain range like 5 meters, another horse set too closely on a higher range can reach inside that circle and possibly breed with your horse. The same goes for all the Amaretto Breedables when it comes to range. Remember the range is set by menu, so wherever you first rez or set home on your Amarettos is where the circle of range is.

Have you ever heard of a Kirin?
A Kirin is a mythical hooved chimerical creature known in Chinese and other East Asian cultures, said to appear with the imminent arrival or passing of a sage or illustrious ruler. It is sometimes called the “Chinese unicorn” when compared with the Western unicorn.

Because of the changes in Linden Labs rules on random purchases and gachas the packs that we sell have changed a little.

Setting for sale!

Hello everyone! Its hump day! Here we are almost in the thick of the holiday season!

I wanted to talk to you guys about something that most of you probablly do already with out any problem, but there may be some of you just figuring it out, and thats setting things for sale!

Now I am showing you on the viewer I use so if you do not use firestorm your options may differ slightly,

This also applies to any objects that you are setting for sale in world not just breedables!

In this first photo this is how objects not set for sale when i rez them out appear, notice that for sale check box is not checked and all other options in the selling options are greyed out. This tells me its not set for sale.

Now when i price the bundle at 300 lindens you will see my options change in the picture below

I have now checked the for sale box and listed my price for 300, but we arent done yet, there is a drop down menu there and concerning breedables you should not change this drop down, you will also see now the apply button is no longer greyed out. In this state the bundle is still not for sale.

Now i have double checked my price and hit the apply button my options now look like the photo below:

For sale is checked, my price is applied, and the drop down menu shows original. This means this bundle is now for sale and anyone can purchase it for 300 lindens.

Using this method to sale your items insures that no one will buy the bundle until you have applied the price at which you want to sell it out. Its important to always check your price because once you price something even if it is a mistake anyone can come and purchased your item set for sale.

I hope this has helped some of you! Happy breeding everyone!
This is Ava over and out!
