Iformation About Sheep Pen Untruths straight from Zynga ((If You Lov It "Like"))


Yesterday Zynga decided to throw up some info about sheep pens,

But I'm guessing they didn't really fact check their info, so here goes a correction:

First, if you get a lamb of a particular gender three times in a row, you'll get a lamb of the opposite gender, guaranteed. The rest is up to chance.

Incorrect Its supposed to work this way, but seemingly doesn't. I know this because I just about 20 minutes ago got 14 ewes in a row. Also other people report the same thing. Good Job Zynga.

Second, any possible patterns are determined by the father alone. A lamb can inherent the pattern of the ram or none at all.

Also not true, I at least 20 times have got a Patterned animal after having a No Pattern Ram and a Patterned ewe, and so have other people. Maybe later on this will be true. Here is one example:

Third, the colors of the body and potential pattern are determined by the colors of both of the parents, which can be deviated somewhat from that color base for variety.

Can't really argue with this, but there has been plenty of times that a No Pattern Ram that's Maroon has relations with a No Pattern Ewe that's Teal, and it ends up a White No Pattern Ewe, but I guess technically white is a part of all colors or some such.

A few more things that aren't true… Someone emailed me and swore there were only FOUR possible outcomes for each pairing of sheep. Well I know that's a load of crap since I did the same pair 10 times and every time it was different.

Which brings me to my next point, I've been messaged a number of times about When are we going to post a "DNA List" well, we aren't. Why you may ask? Because there is no such thing. 100 people could make the same pair of sheep do the dirty, and all 100 could be different from each other. The difference could be extreme or just a slight shade difference. Here are 3 examples I saved the other day when I was curious if there was some all magical way to predict the outcome.

WHY CAN'T COLORS/PATERNS BE RANDOM ALSO WHY CAN'T YOU SAY MIX COLORS AND HAVE THEM WHAT TURN OUT AT THE THE COLOR THE MIX SHOULD BE WITH OR WITHOUT PATTERNS AT RANDOM..ALSO CLOVERS OR INTEINAS ETC..OTHER WISE THIS IS GOING TO GET BORING QUICK!!!

What am I doing wrong? I breed Brutus the ram with a Ewe that's white with maroon spots and only once have I gotten an ewe with spots! Love potions are much too hard and few in between to get, thus discouraging the whole making new sheep thing. And if what you say is true, then I could be trying hundreds of times and never get a spotted ewe or ram unless both ewe and ram have spots? When will there be a ram available to purchase that has spots? And for that matter, why aren't there any ewes or rams available to be purchased with coins? Is this England farm only for people willing to purchase Farm cash?
