The best of the bunch is without doubt Chuckie Egg, by A&F Software. It is destined to become an all time Spectrum classic.
Crash! (Mar, 1984)
An excellent arcade game, with high addictivity built in. But it's very expensive at almost £8 - the one drawback.
Home Computing Weekly (Nov 15, 1983)
I did find the musical interludes annoying after a while but on the whole it's a most enjoyable fun game and very addictive, if a trifle pricey. Try it.

The inclusion of a giant caged duck (we'll call him Ed) raises a few questions (not least the moral question of cross-breeding), but play through the standard levels and Ed is set free to fly around the screen with even more menace than those clucking hens. Further play throughs then see Ed and his ladies team up to defend their potential offspring and you will need to prove that you're no chicken if Chuckie Egg is to be beaten.
