• Lemon
• Carrot
• Sky
• Russet
• Peach
• Coconut
• Charcoal
• Glitter Gold

Duck Beak Color traits were released hidden inside of starter ducks on October 8, 2018 with the release of version 1.0! The Duck Beak Colo trait comes from breeding “Starter breed” together or one starter with any other Duck.

There are so many other traits you can breed with the ducks, check here for more information on what traits are available: https://duck.amaretto.wiki/index.php?title=List_of_Barnyard_Duck_Traits

Where Are The Wild Hairs?

Where Are The Wild Hairs?

Help! I can’t find such and such a wild hair, where is it? The Amaretto wiki does not have separate pages for wild hairs, but if you type the name in the search bar on upper right corner it will give you a list of pages with the horse that the hair comes from. If it’s still too hard for you to see, there is another option.

https://www.theamarettofamily.com/


Our very own Amaretto moderator, Bastian Hax, has developed a great site called theamarettofamily.com. If you have a wild hair you haven’t seen before, you can go to Bazza’s website to search for it. That’s right, this site has a page for wild hairs where breeders enter a picture themselves of the wild hair they may have. To enter a picture you will have to sign up, but it’s easy and fun. The site has tons of helpful information and pictures.

https://www.theamarettofamily.com/index.php?/forum/39-wild-hairs/

There are instructions on the page on how to search for one you want to see the look of, and if you can’t find it, on how to enter one you may have. Be sure to turn on full sun when taking your picture, have the horse fully sideways so the mane shows. Wild Hairs should be “clean”, No hues, luster or gleams. You can save the picture to your computer which is free, and use that to enter on the site. Here’s an example of one I entered that I really love

https://www.theamarettofamily.com/index.php?/topic/120-wild-hair-amaretto-rfl-search-for-a-cure-day/


There are different categories to enter the hair under or to search for it such as starters, charmed, albino, etc.
It is Bazza’s dream to eventually have all the wild hairs on this site, an ambitious project, and a good start has been made thanks to the breeders who submit their pictures. Happy Searching!

Are You Coulrophobic?

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

With their big red nose, white painted face, and over-sized polka-dot tie, clowns are a staple for circuses and childhood birthday parties — but, also, horror movies and nightmares! In fact, some people are so scared of clowns (roughly 7.8% of the population) that there is an actual term for it: coulrophobia.

The history of the clown dates back to the jester or fool of ancient times. In those days, the clown was given permission and, even, expected to represent the deviant side of human nature. As time went on, the jester morphed into the trickster, a more sinister figure with intentions that were less than honorable.

But, how did this fear of clowns develop? There are two commonly accepted schools of thought. One is that the fear is based on a negative personal experience with a clown at a young age. Their strange costumes and masks only add to the creepy vibes they give off.

The second theory is that mass media has created a hype surrounding evil clowns. While, obviously, the vast majority of individuals are not scared of clowns in a day-to-day context, a clown’s face has become part of a scare culture. So much so that those who are not personally exposed to clowns are trained to dislike or fear them.

Over the years, urban legends began to focus on killer clowns lying in wait for hapless babysitters. By the 1980s, author Stephen King tapped into the national consciousness with the definitive killer clown work of fiction, It. Thereby, putting the colorful circus performers right up there with vampires and werewolves on the list of iconic horror villains.

Amaretto has created a Creepy Clown that you don’t have to fear!

Never fear, Amaretto is here! Until October 31st, you can get a horse or chicken version of our own Halloween Creepy Clown to add to your collection! Their eyes CAN pass, plus, they hide some spooky surprises! Read more about them here: https://amarettobreedables.com/connection/?p=20536

Don’t miss out, get yours today!

Until next time…Happy Halloween & Happy Breeding! 🎈

Tips for when there are SL Issues!

Hey guys! Whats up? Are you having a good Monday? I hope you are! Well i was trying to come up with something you guys might actually not already know all about! I was thinking about all the maintenance that has been going on lately and some important things to remember! This may be true with not only Amaretto products but any no copy objects you may have.

If you are experiencing issues with Second Life, you can check to see if there is a known problem with the Second Life grid. Go to http://status.secondlifegrid.net/ for the latest updates on outages and other known problems. This page also shows the calendar of planned server rolling restarts.

Occasionally during LL Maintenance sessions their servers cause things to happen to the Horses/K-9’s/Barnyard Birds that shouldn’t. Anything that does happen can be fixed but in order to minimize the chances of something happening here are some helpful tips to pass along:

Do not pick up or attempt to rez out Horses/K-9’s/Barnyard Birds/Ponies/Ducks or Bundles/Kennels/Nests/Baskets or any other products such as food or consumables as sometimes the asset server gets a hiccup and decides to eat them. If you must pickup or rez a orses/K-9’s/Barnyard Birds/Ponies/Ducks or Bundles/Kennels/Nests/Baskets please copy down its FULL API from the description field before doing anything, to make recovering the orses/K-9’s/Barnyard Birds/Ponies/Ducks or Bundles/Kennels/Nests/Baskets Possible

Do not attempt to send a Horse/K-9/Barnyard Bird/Bundle/Kennel/Nest to Horse Haven/Puppy Paradise/Bird Sanctuary as the maintenance can prevent that communication from going through.

Do not attempt to birth Bundles/Kennels/Nests as the maintenance can cause the Bundle/Kennel/Nest to not birth correctly.

Do not move Bundles/Kennels/Nests/Baskets from under the mother until the hover text says it is ready!

If one duplicates don’t rez out 10 more expecting a different result! If you rez any Amaretto animal and it starts duplicating stop rezzing! Dont make a bigger mess than you have to!

In most cases Amaretto can recover lost or missing breedables but you MUST have some information such as UUID or name.
If you need assistance just file a ticket!
Happy breeding everyone this is Ava over and out!
