                                                             UPDATE 

Well it still looks like any of the flasher we previously had are still breeding basic BLACK & WHITE sheep. ive heard from some people who bought the new market ZYNGA VERSION's and they are doing exactly the same for them, they are getting only black and white. 
Have they gone to far and ruined there own sheep aswell or is this just a simple miss-calculation of DNA stranding or have thy not remembered to activate the breeding feature to allow for colour changes.

MAKE YOUR DECISION AND POST YOUR COMMENT LET USE KNOW IF THEY ARE WORKING FOR YOU. ( IF YOU HAVE BOUGHT THEM THAT IS )  

                                                             UPDATE

Please read this post http://gamersunite.coolchaser.com/topics/63322-farmville-25-farmville-cash-email-questions-about-illegal-market-sheep-answered-live-support
Support has said that our old flashers and any sheep produced from any illegal sheep will only reproduce basic solids Mostly Black & White.

                                                             UPDATE   
Vanessa Galpin - OK I AM CROSS... I bought the two for my home farm - ONE OF EACH.. and bred 10x both of them.. and all I get is the patterns and straight colours.. NO CHANGE COLOUR OFF SPRINGS. 
undefined Was on live Chat.. they are not up to date on what is going on.. waiting for the e-mail from his supervisor.. I think you were much nicer than me..
                                                                                              

                                            UPDATE 15:15 U.K TIme 29th April

Starting new tests of sheep bought the Rainbow Dots From the market i have also bought a WHITE ewe for 700 coins, They said tht it had to be 2 from the market they did not mention which 2. Just putting my Pen togethero n my home farm then will follow up with images RESULTS. 

                                            UPDATE 16:25 U.K TIme 29th April

Well, Well, Well, Whatdo we have here another proven case that there sheep in the market are corrupted due to there own mis calculation of there own DNA breeeding.

How come the XML Hackers Could get it right perfect with so many different kind of sheep, Yet Zynga are having a problem with the simplicity of just 1. See Results Below.
 

                                Brand New Spotty Ram And Basic Ewe From The Market

                                                   Zynga Can Not Blame Hybrids

                                          Mixed 5 Times See Results Below

So now you can see zynga it is not us who is contaminating the sheep it is you. 

Get your finger out ya ***** and get this sorted i will be expecting all 50 Bottles Returned and my purchase amount for the ram when i speak to live support shortly, Full convosation will follow.

 

I AM DOING THIS AND TAKING THE FRUSTRATION SO OTHER PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE TO WASTE THERE MONEY TO BE RIPPED OF BY ZYNGA, THIS IS GETTING OUT OF HAND.

info: You are now chatting with 'Joanne M.'
Joanne M.: Hello clinton! I am a Zynga Customer Support Representative.  How can I help you today?
clinton: ( Hello Joanne M I Apologise in Advance Sorry If This Seems Abit Rude ) Ok so ive purchased one of your flashing rainbow spots rams and ive been running tests on them breeding them with a basic white sheep from the market aswell. Here are the results over a test of 5 breedings i got one spotty sheep but no flashing and all the rest were bsic solids. which is the exact same thing that is happening with the illegal spotty flshing ram which i have on my EC farm what i adopted. So Zynga are screwing with us ( PARDON MY LANGUAGE VERY FRUSTRATED ) Ive paid for something that is obviously a HOAX and it will not work because you still have them blocked. I would like to talk to a senior Assistant about getting a refund for the spotty ram i have purchased and all the 50 bottles i have used and the 25 Love Potion i have used to breed these sheep to prove that you still have not allowed us to breed flashing rams which are clearly in the market from Zynga. Im not the only person who has these results even the Chameleon Ewe is giving the same results and my fcebook feed is full of UNHAPPY CUSTOMERS. Do you want back feedback from all 47,000,000 PLAYERS AND GIVE ZYNGA A VERY BAD NAME FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE OR ARE YOU GOING TO REFUND WHAT I HAVE ASKED FOR AND GET THIS FLASHING SHEEP BUISNESS OF ZYNGAS SORTED. THANK YOU FOR READING AND SORRY I KNOW THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT AS YOU ARE ONLY AN ASSISTANT AND NOT THE DIRECT CULPRIT FOR THE PROBLEMS EVERYONE IS EXPERIENCING BUT I KNOW YOU WILL UNDERSTAND MY FRUSTRATION.
Joanne M.: Let me read it first
clinton: i will.
Joanne M.: thanks
Joanne M.: I am sorry to hear that. Regarding your issue please refer to this link for more informationhttp://support.zynga.com/CP_ArticleView?Id=kA160000000GoURCA0&gameId=63&loc=en_US 
clinton: I have read this already and i have spoke with an agent this morning i have the convo sation saved i was talking to lilian B. She said that if the flashing sheep bought form the market were clearly bred with none hybrids and none illegal sheep that other flashing sheep would be produced. Sp im getting one story from them and another from you. Sorry but you seem to be avoiding the real Question Why is the breeding not working when zynga have clearly released 2 forms of flashing sheep to the public.
clinton: i would like for you to refer to this http://support.zynga.com/CP_ArticleView?Id=kA160000000GoVjCAK&gameId=63&loc=en_US
Joanne M.: when did you purchased the flashing sheep?
clinton: about 4 - 6 hours ago
Joanne M.: Can you please give me the exact name of that flashing sheep
clinton: let me check the market
clinton: Ram (Rainbow Dots)
Joanne M.: ok
Joanne M.: It's not a flashing sheep
clinton: yes the dots change colour. and this is not being reproduced like lilian B has said.
clinton: Also the Chameleon Ewe is not passing on its Pulsating Colours to its lambs 
Joanne M.: Clinton, please be inform that breeding sheep is totally random.
clinton: Then why is it that nobody has been able to reproduce these sheep and everyone and i mean everyone is getting basic sheep. ( BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT ALLOWED THE SYSTEM TO DO SO ) Zynga is taken out FV Cash and not giving what is advertised which is false advertising.
Joanne M.: Here's what I can do. I will be forwarding your issues to  our Game Developers. They will run a full investigation in your account and find an immediate fix.
clinton: That would be the simplest and faster possible solution ? & Can i recieve and email notification of this for future reference if the matter is not fixed in the near future.
clinton: fastest*
Joanne M.: I will be sending you an email after this chat session, you can contact me through that and I can also send you an updates.
Joanne M.: I will be sending you updates on a daily basis until this issue is resolved, but I hope you don’t mind if I ask you to send me any feedback within 24 hours each time you receive my response so that we can have a constant communication coz I really want to see to it that your issue will be resolved the soonest possible time and make sure that we can maintain your impression of FarmVille being a very enjoyable game.
clinton: I will send feedback and i will continue to test the sheep this is going to cause even more frustration for me and everyone else but if this is the only way that Zynga can take action on this then hat else can i do.
clinton: It seems like we are getting punished for the people who introduced the illegal sheep which is highly biast against everyone and not just them.
Joanne M.: i apologize
clinton: and now players like me have spent lots of bottles, Love potions and even 30 FV cash - 50 on both new sheep to get back to pulsating breeding and we are losing out again.
clinton: i do hope this matter can be resolved ASAP
Joanne M.: I will be adding potions and bottles in your gift box
clinton: ty Joanna like i said i know you are not the cause and im sorry if i have been rude its just very frustrating being duped into something that can not be done.
Joanne M.: I understand
Joanne M.: Let me add 30 fv cah in your account
Joanne M.: as one time courtesy due to this issue
Joanne M.: can you please provide me your user id
clinton: yes 1 moment
Joanne M.: ok
clinton: *****
Joanne M.: thanks
Joanne M.: one moment please
Joanne M.: thank you for patiently waiting
clinton: Thank you for your time and patience and hopefully this can be good news to all my neighbours that this problem is now being looked into & updates will be provided. 
Joanne M.: the 30 fv cash is now in your account
clinton: ty joanne
Joanne M.: you're welcome
Joanne M.: Is there anything else I can help you with today?

Michael C. : Hello clinton! I am a Zynga Customer Support Representative.  How can I help you today?
clinton: Hi I know this is not due to you as i did not speak to you so im sorry if you take any offence. I spoke to a representative yesterday named Joanne M about all the problems with the new market sheep ive been having she said she would return the 30 FV Cash i had spent on the Flashing Dots Ram and also return the 25 love potions and 50 bottles i used to grow them as your clear statement on this zynga update http://support.zynga.com/CP_ArticleView?Id=kA160000000GoVjCAK&gameId=63&loc=en_US is FALSE and MISLEADING which you also contradict yourselves on http://support.zynga.com/CP_ArticleView?Id=kA160000000GoURCA0&gameId=63&loc=en_US taking into account the one mentioning it is possible to breed these to create flashing sheep is posted and updted after the one about the list of breedable sheep i have the transcript saved if you need evidence as i had it emailed to me. i received my 30 FV Cash back but not the bottles or love potions and due to this i am not a happy person as your representative has lied and mis-leaded me into thining i would get my items back when i clearly have not what is going to be done about this. I was also told thati would be updated on the situation at hand and i have not heard anything may i ask what is being done about the sheep breeding problematic situation.
Michael C. : I'm sorry to hear that, Clinton.
Michael C. : I'll be glad to restore the items that weren't added to your gift box.
Michael C. : Just to check, are your sheeps producing plain white lambs?
clinton: they are producing plain white rams and ewes i had one orange ewe which when bred with any other produced another white lamb / ram
clinton: ive been heading around zynga forums that they have actually blocked there own sheep from producing gentic lambs to flash, so i think it would be clearly right to update the zynga posts ive mentioned in the first comment
clinton: hearing*
Michael C. : I see. Regarding sheep breeding, if the Ram was purchased in the Market, they are considered legal and shouldn't be affected,
clinton: this will clear up any problems people think they are having and also give alot of people peace of mind untill they have fixed these problems in the near future
Michael C. : The change only applies to sheep that were collected from the news feed or were illegally produced.
clinton: i bred the flashing lamb from the market with another market lamb
clinton: i have all this data saved and stored as i update my group page to let me mebers know any updates as not 1 and i do mean not 1 has been able to pass on these genetic markers
clinton: members*
clinton: only the camo and stars have been able to be pased on
Michael C. : I see. Currently, we just have the issue with the sheep producing the plain white lamb.
Michael C. : Since your sheep were purchased from the Market, they shouldn't be affected.
Michael C. : I'll report this to our Game Developers and have them check your account.
clinton: i hear what your saying michael but should and ARE NOT is 2 different things
clinton: there was a post in the forum earlier which explained what zynga had done and why the flashing market sheep are not producing these genetic markers i have this saved and can produce it if need be. The post was deleted by the moderators as it explinaed that zynga had blocked all genetic coding with DNA f0 - f10 inside there DNA stranding and explained that zynga used charls XML editor to create the sheep like the hackers did who first inplanted there sheep into the game.
clinton: so basicly this told everyone the market sheep to produce flashing lambs were being falsely advertised. 
clinton: and nobody would be able to create genetic lambs from these as zynga had also blocked there own 
clinton: and the mods removed it to hide the truth
Michael C. : I'm very sorry if that's the way it is coming out, Clinton. I admit that I am not aware of this development.
Michael C. : The only position that we have on sheep breeding is on this link:
Michael C. : http://support.zynga.com/CP_ArticleView?Id=kA160000000GoURCA0&gameId=63&loc=en_US
clinton: you have 47,000,000 players who would like straight answers from people higher than you in ranking ( NO DISRESPECT INTENDED ) as i know they keep alot of stuff from the reps
clinton: also why is the royal steed only producing Knight Foals and not Royal Steed Foals like these is on the farmville freak website which is zynga approved i have access to this infomation and an image of dark farms farm with hisRoyal Steed Foal
clinton: There is alot of issues that need to be answered and zynga keep pushing the matters to one side as if they are disregarding them and just making more ideas to creat an income.
Michael C. : This issue with the Royal Steed producing the wrong foals has actually been reported to our Game Developers and they are currently working to resolve this as soon as possible.
clinton: thats a good result with the royal steed and im glad to hear.
clinton: Do you know anything that is being done about these flashing ZYNGA APPROVED SHEEP in the market not producing flashing ofspring or are the reps being kept in the dark over this matter aswell.
Michael C. : I'm very sorry Clinton however we are also waiting on updates from our Game Developers regarding that.
clinton: They do know there game has took a nose dive in the last week + due to all the new problems and on the table of weekly players they have lots between 3 - 5 million players last time i checked. Would they take more noticed and speed things up if they lost another 10 million. As if i may speak freely ( Money seems to be there only concern ) 
clinton: lost*
clinton: itsn ot just zynga but all gaming Coprs are the same.
clinton: corps* sorry for the typos having a bad day.
Michael C. : No problem. I assure you that as soon as issues are reported in the game, our Game Developers try to address them as soon as possible. 
Michael C. : By the way, I've restored your 25 Love Potions and 50 Bottles into your gift box.
clinton: TY FOR RESTORING THEM. reply to your response before the gifts. >> Well i hope so as ive really come to enjoy playing the game since ive returned and i dont want to stop playing but if there is a constant continuation of problems and faults and mis-leading advertising to dupe people into buying things that do not work as annouced i may have to find alternative gaming. 
clinton: Thank you for you time and assistance i will not keep you any longer and look forward to seeing a new zynga update on these matters ASAP in the near future.
Michael C. : You're welcome, Clinton.
Michael C. : Thanks for contacting Zynga Customer Support. To receive an email with the transcript of our conversation, click the envelope icon and enter your email address.

Default Breeding Update - 5/2/2011!

Hey Farmers,

We have been made aware that current in-game messaging regarding Sheep Breeding is inaccurate and confusing to our customers. This messaging implies that the success rate for color/pattern inheritance is 100% guaranteed, when in fact, it is not.

This messaging was unintentional, and we sincerely apologize for any confusion or frustration.

The text will be updated to reflect the feature's intended design as soon as possible. If you purchased a Ram and/or Ewe from the Market under the assumption that the success rate was guaranteed due to this messaging,please contact our CS department and they will refund your account accordingly. (This means your purchased Rams and/or Ewes will be removed, and the equivalent amount of Farm Cash will be restored to your account.)

Due to the volume of emails from customers during this time, it may take longer than normal for a CS agent to assist you, but they will respond to your request as soon as they are able.


Breeding and White Sheep:

Please know that the intended design of this feature was never a 100% success rate for color/pattern inheritance. We have seen reports from the community indicating that prior to the release of Pig Breeding, the pattern inheritance success rate (from Rams) was unusually high (80 – 100% success rate). This was a bug and the feature is now functioning as intended.

We have also seen reports from players indicating that an unusually high amount of White Sheep are being produced when breeding. As white is a color, it is possible to produce white sheep when the feature is operating normally.

However, we are investigating player reports to determine if more white sheep are being produced than anticipated. Please know that this process is not an easy one and will take time for us to address.


Chameleon Sheep only producing White Sheep:

Currently, the Chameleon Ewe and Rainbow Dots Ram are producing almost exclusively plain white sheep. This is a bug that we are actively working to resolve. We will be releasing a fix for the Chameleon Ewe and Rainbow Dots Ram sometime this week which will result in the color/pattern inheritance success rates to be on par with the other Rams/Sheep in the game.

As always, we appreciate your feedback! If you would like to share any thoughts or opinions, please make sure to follow the FarmVille Forum Rules and Rules of Conduct when posting.


Thanks!

Whatever Lexi you knew there was a problem from the start and you never brought it to surface. The players had to find out the hard way and now you say you will refund them all if they contact CS. Well what if they dont know how, you should send an apology email out to everyone and refund them in the emails. 
So stop telling lies and get to the facts, You knew the problems would arise when u blocked the illegal sheep as blocking them also blocked your own, When you fix this people will not buy they will adopt and you know this also, but Zynga is always thinking about the MONEY. Whatever you think is right you are wrong you need to give the truth as soon as you know and not dupe all the innocent players into buying sheep that is obviously a HOAX. That all said and done you will never get another penny from me untill you start speaking  100% truth 24/7 and not just a bunch of phrases stuck together in a rush to try and calm down all of us angry players.

I ALSO POSTED THIS BOTTOM COMMENT IN THE ZYNGA FORUM WONDER HOW LONG TILL ITS DELETED.


WELL THEY DIDNT JUST DELETE MY POST THEY BANNED ME FROM THE FORUM OK STUMPGRINDER LETS HAVE A FIGHT SHALL WE I WONT BE BANNED LONG WHEN I TAKE ACTION WATCH AND LEARN. THIS PROVES THY ARE TRYING TO SHELTER THE TRUTH BEHIND A WALL OF B*** S***. 

DO THEY REALLY THINK THAT THEY CAN BAN SOMEONE WITH OVER 50 IP ADDRESSES, THEY REALLY NEED TO LEARN. LOL ACCOUNT NAME HIDDEN INCASE THEY WATCHING G.U AS WE KNOW THEY ALWAYS ARE.

I wish I had read this before buying them. I have nothing but legal sheep on my farm. I have tried 4 different times to bread them with no color changes coming out of them. Seems as though the more money that Zynga gets, the more they rip us off.
