Sion Chickens were created in Second Life by Sion Zaius. These chickens are scripted to grow, eat, breed and lay eggs, develop their own personalities, and eventually die to make way for more chickens. As the Sion Chickens became increasingly popular, people began to build farms and create their own products and accessories to be used with the chickens. The purpose of this blog is to post product reviews, tips and information on raising your Sion Chickens, updates and news, and other fun stuff. Below is the text taken directly from the Sion Chicken notecard. Please visit Sion Corp in world at: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Boardman/76/134/23
Each of the sionEggs will hatch into sionChickens!
Watch them grow up within weeks, made possible by the new seamlessGrow(tm) technology.
Like in real nature, you’ll have a fifty percent chance of getting a rooster or a hen. The gender will be picked by the integrated genderRandomize(tm) mechanism.
Sion Corp Research is proud to present another new breakthrough: pathfindAlgorithm(tm) – which makes it easy for your pet to walk around obstacles like boxes, or avatars.
In combination with saneSense(tm), your chickens avoids neighbor parcels, water, or slopes.
sionChickens need food to grow up. Put a bowl on the ground and watch them find their way to the bowl!
As your pets get into puberty, they will be ready to mate.
If you happen to be the lucky owner of a grown up hen and a rooster, you will most likely find laid eggs on your land after a while.
With infiRepro(tm) you can now watch the next generation hatch, or do you want give those eggs away as a gift? Its possible, so do it!
Bought eggs are not copyable, but laid eggs are copy- AND SELLABLE!
It even gets better!
Each Animal has its own color which emerges from it’s mother and fathers color.
With herediMix(tm) you can now breed chicken with your own special color.
Do you want to sell a chicken with a special Color? Do it!
Laid eggs have the same color as the Chicken will have, which enables you to discern between them.
Sold Eggs will only have the color red, green or blue.
If you want to have a purple child, let a blue rooster marry a red hen!
Watch out for the black egg, which carries a hereditary defect and kills all other animals!
Those chickens are completely physical.
They can be cuddled or pushed around, they can even be killed by weapons. So take care of them!
Do not bump or step on them, as they will remember you and it will take them a long time to trust you again!
Also, avoid putting a living chicken into your inventory, it will get crushed.
Only feed your chicken with Sion’s biological chicken food to provide optimal health!
Four food bowls contain enough food for three chickens to get into puberty.
