FarmVille Bug Report: Color changing sheep suffer problems; high pattern inheritance was a "bug"


So, remember when Zynga released some color-changing sheep (The Chameleon Ewe and Rainbow Ram) to the FarmVille market to appease users that wanted to legally breed color-changing sheep in all of their multi-color glory? It turns out, Zynga might have jumped the gun on their release, along with other items, as the FarmVille forums have exploded over the last 24 hours with users demanding refunds, screaming of scams and false-advertisement. Why? These color-changing sheep currently don't breed properly, resulting either in solid color sheep with no patterns, or completely white sheep time after time, with no color-changing being carried into the offspring.

While some users have used the Rainbow Ram (an orange Ram with blue polka dots) to successfully breed offspring that too have dots, as you can see from AL13N's image at the top of this post, the majority of users' attempts are resulting in drab, even white sheep with no color-changing to be found, even if the Ram's pattern is carried down to the Lamb.
