    They'll end up being roughly the size of the dragons. Sweet, thanks for the outline. XD I hate, hate, hate doves - LOL they took me three tries and still looked like they were severely malformed. X_X

    Hmm, for a cockatiel egg, I'm thinking it should be dark grey with orange spots around it, resembling the two orange cheeks on the tiels. And maybe some eggs could just be one plain color. Like a lovebird egg would just be green for example. Just giving ideas!

    Can't do the plain color because I'm already using plain colors for 'mystery eggs'. I used one orange spot for the Cockatiels, maybe two could work.

    I hope they're cute enough, though. Parrotlets are possibly some of the cutest birds in the whole world.

    Re: Making an Egg Game: Updated 11/21

    Still designing the game, but now we're off of graphics and a little onto figuring out all the features and functions. Don't want to read my GIGANTIC but detailed view on what everything does? Don't want spoilers? Well, here's the low down:

    Have an egg you don't want: You can smash it or leave it in an incubator for others to raise as their own. Eggs can be fertile or infertile, but eggs won, traded, or earned will always be fertile.

    Another feature that will be available is hiatus, which means if there's something like a family camping trip your eggs won't die! Rather than drop and hope the right person grabs your egg or chick, you can gift it to someone, or trade eggs and chicks!

    You are allowed to DNA sex your chicks at any stage, but only as needed. Obvious males/females automatically become labeled when they get their adult feathers. Chicks and adults can be placed in stasis so they don't age. Elder birds cannot be bred but can be retired to a sanctuary. Once this is done, you recieve a new egg for free, and your beloved bird can be viewed forever on your profile page (untouched by time).

    Re: Making an Egg Game: Updated 11/21

    Trying to teach myself enough JavaScript so I won't feel bad ordering my programmers around. LOL. HEADACHE inducing, this coding is.

    My idea was if you 'abandon' your egg or chick, then they go to different place. Obviously, different levels of care, right? Potential actions that may or may NOT be available depending on the mood of my coders and my sanity at the time. *Evil cackle*

    Available to ALL birds irregardless of status or stage of life:
    Hiatus: Places all of your birds in stasis temporarily, so you can go on vacation and not worry about any of your babies dying.
    >Put them in Stasis: Places all of your birds in stasis
    >Cancel: Undoes the process
    >Get Code: Allows you to retrieve the code for all your babies.
    >Examine: Allows you to see all the known stats for your birds, compiled
    for your convenience onto one page.
    Eggs may be fertile or infertile/dead. Infertile eggs get tossed out after a certain point.
    Message: You toss the egg into the trash bin. No point
    in keeping it.
    //There are various reasons why this could happen in the game. Usually a result of poor conditions (ie not enough views), deliberate action, or possibly parents being too young. Eggs won in games, aquired through trade, or found in the incubator will ALWAYS be fertile.
    Possible Actions:
    >Candle=Message: Your egg is at stage [X], and should hatch in
    [X] days.
    Gives you all the known stats on the egg.
    >Surrender=Message: You surrender the egg. Hopefully someone
    will take good care of it.
    The egg goes into the main incubator, where anyone can pick it up to keep.
    >Freeze=Message: You freeze the egg, to stop it's progress.
    >Un-freeze=Message: You unfreeze your egg so it can continue
    to develop.
    These are for people who aren't going on vacation but for whatever reason need to stop the growth of their egg. This prevents progress, and can help you co-ordinate hatching times.
    >Smash=Message: You smash the egg. It breaks.
    If you don't think your egg will be picked up, or you have been stuck with the egg and can't surrender it, you may smash the egg before it can hatch. Once it begins to hatch, you cannot do this!
    >Gift=Message: You give the egg to [Input name].
    Allows you to give an egg to a specific person. Prevents those insane "I drop, you catch before five million others try to grab it too" sessions.
    >Confirm
    If you are offered a gift you may confirm. Gifted eggs may go over your limit, so be careful if you were thinking of surrendering some excess eggs. Once you are over the limit, you will not be able to surrender any eggs but must wait for them to hatch or smash them,
    >Trade=Message: You offer the egg to [Input name], in the
    hopes of obtaining [Input request].
    Trades must be directed at a specific player. You then pick what you wish to recieve in return. You may ask for anything, including chicks. The other person need not offer what you ask for, though. It is only a suggestion.
    >Accept=Message: You accept the offer, and the
    trade proceeds. This cannot be undone!
    As it says, you accept an offer given.
    >Reject=Message: You reject the offer.
    If you don't like what is offered, the other person can try again.
    >Offer=Message: You offer [X] in exchange for [X].
    If you are the one offered a trade, you can offer up whatever you want. You have a maximum of 4 chicks or eggs, though.
    >Cancel=Message: You stop the trade from
    going through.

    I'm basing the system of maximum birds allowed on their size. I know this is not a flawless way of doing it, but it means that people can have more small birds. Some things have been changed too; some birds have been moved up or down a size depending on what needs to be where. Then maximum amounts would grow based on how many birds you've sucessfully raised to adulthood.
    Bird or Egg Sizes:
    Tiny=1 Slot
    Small=1.5 Slots
    Medium=2 Slots
    Large=4 Slots
    __________________
    Max # Eggs = 8 Slots
    Max # Chicks = 12 Slots

    So...
    You could have 8 FInch Eggs, 12 Finch chicks.
    Or you could have 2 Macaw Eggs, 3 Macaw chicks.
    Or a mix of 1 Macaw egg and 4 FInch eggs, 2 Parrotlet chicks, 1 Macaw chick, and 5 Finch chicks... You get the picture. Obviously, i'm still adjusting maximum and what gets labeled what. Advice needed!

    1. If won in a game, then they are color coded by rarity, and each one has a certain percent of being a specific species. So you would only know that you won a rare egg (or whicever) until it is in your inventory when you identify it!
    2. If they are bred, than the species will be the same as it's parents! Mutations are always random. Genetics will NOT be coded as of this point, as it would be too complex. Certain mutations are rarer than others, however. For example, if you adopt a canary it has a small % chance of being red-factor. I know, I know, this isn't very realistic.
    3. When picking up an egg at random the only thing that can be determined is the approximate species (ie. Finch or Macaw. But the species is NOT known.) This may change, but this adds to the aura of mystery.
    4. When finding an egg through egg hunts, the only thing that is known is the size. Nothing else is known, not even the rarity.


    Some eggs, like the Spix's Macaw (extinct) are very, very rare!
