Description

This single-screen action strategy game puts you in control of a chicken farm. There is a procedural element to the gameplay - you throw seeds which the chickens eat, which cause them to lay eggs, money (and, in the case of the magic eggs encountered later, valuable gems). Grab the coins; the eggs can either be hatched or taken for further money. Hens can be bought (though it is more efficient to hatch your own, once you have a few hatching hens) or sold on. After the first few levels, upgrades gradually become available - a mouse wandering around the scren picking up coins is perhaps the most useful.

There are further complications to contend with - at random intervals a hen will become sick, and must be clicked on quickly. Ravens swoop overhead trying to take your chickens - click on them Operation Wolf-style to prevent this. Green ?s appear at random intervals - click on these for an outcome which could be positive or negative.

Each level has a different victory criterea - on some you msut make a certain sum of money, while on others you must have a certain number of hens (with limits imposed on how many you can buy) and on others you keep a target number of a particular variety of egg. Some of these are played against a time limit.
