Save the Chickens - Free Online Games

Updated on December 22, 2012

Save the Chickens!

It's tough being a chicken. Without question we all have problems, but our issues pale in comparison to the daily stresses endured by out avian friends. We sentient humans often stare down the barrel of querulous dilemmas such as whether or not to super-size our fries, but  imagine the eternal angst caused by watching your eggs plummet earthward.

This extremely helpful online free chicken game fills a much needed void in the genre of free online chicken games. You, the player, are provided with a bottomless egg-catching device. A simple twist of fate leaves you standing under a hapless chicken who desperately needs your assistance. Without your manual dexterity, her eggs will suffer a fate worse than Denny's.  You absolutely must guide the device along the bottom of the screen to catch as many falling eggs as humanly possible.

Don't be intimidated

At first blush, your egg-saving task may seem virtually insurmountable. We rarely find ourselves looking up at infinite numbers of eggs while holding nothing but a magic basket that never fills.

The eggs just keep on coming. It's like sorting letters at the post office, except the retirement plan is better.

Simply slide your basket left and right. That's all there is to it. You aren't required to grade the eggs or deliver them to market. Keep the basket moving: be ever vigilant. Every egg counts.

You don't even need to click. Your computer mouse (not a real mouse - chickens hate mice) is somehow virtually connected to your egg-catching basket. As your wrist flicks, your basket slides in perfect unison. Henrietta Hen appreciates your effort and clucks appropriately.

What could go wrong?

Your worst-case scenario: an egg escapes your basket and splats upon the virtual ground. Henrietta shrieks in horror. The game ends.

We all need to face adversity. Missing an egg in this free online chicken game offers a proper analog for failure in real life. Never again will you cringe in horror when you drop a real egg at a real supermarket. Never again will you sink into depression when you lose your real job and end up writing free online chicken games for a living. Play this game a few hundred times to build up sufficient mental callouses. Real life will feel like a picnic after struggling to save Henrietta's kids from imminent splatter.

The game has levels

Level One releases 12 eggs. Catch all of them and find yourself rewarded with Henrietta's eternal gratitude. Click on the "Next Level" button to release the Krakken of Level 2.

As with all online free chicken games, successive levels become progressively more difficult. We easily surmounted Level 1 with great aplomb. Level 2 became problematic shortly after the first few eggs dropped from Henrietta's hideout.

We never saw Level 3. Only players with a background in extreme egg-catching should expect to attempt these advanced levels. Perhaps additional hazards appear: we wonder if a red-headed freckle-faced farm boy pops out from behind the virtual hay bales to abscond with your captured eggs. Maybe Colonel Sanders puts in an offer for the current harvest.


It's fun. Go play.

      nicomp - you forgot the disclaimer: "No chickens were harmed in the making of this hub." Eggs perhaps, but no chickies.
