The Chicken Farm Game - Help

Aim of the game:

You have to cure chickens suffering from the disease beriberi, which is caused by a lack of vitamin B1 in their diet. Feeding ill chickens with the correct food will cure them, but choose your food wisely. Examples of food containing lots of vitamin B1 are brown rice, lentils and peas. Don’t get caught out. Remember that brown rice contains the shell that houses the valuable vitamin, and that this shell has been removed in polished white rice.

You only have one minute to cure the chickens, so the goal is to be as quick as possible. If you don’t succeed, you will have to start all over again. If you do succeed, you will move onto the next farm. And if you are really quick you could end up on the “farmer of the month” list!


Help - the Chicken Farm Game
Stear the spoon with the arrow keys.
1. Put the food containing lots of vitamin B1 onto the spoon and take it to the chicken that look most in need of feeding.
2. To feed the chicken, make sure you position the food next to the beak.

You can only feed the chickens when they are alive and are standing. If you collide with a running chicken, the food will fall off the spoon.
