Pickin’ Chickens Drumond Park Review

We have been sent Pickin’ Chickens to review from Drumond Park.

Jake was super excited, as he has seen it advertised on TV.  Before I had even gotten the chance to speak to him he had told me all about the game and how to play it! Fair to say, he was super excited!
The contents of the box includes :- 16 coloured chicken (4 red, 4 yellow, 4 blue and 4 green), 12 chicken coops, rotating game base (field circle), 4 double-sided chicken cards, 1 farmer card and instructions.
This game is aimed at age 4+ with 2 to 4 player

  • Save your chicks from the Jumping Fox!
  • Help Farmer Giles to keep the chickens safe!
  • 1st player to collect 4 chicks wins!
  • No batteries required
  • For 2 – 4 players

There are 2 ways to play the game – one for younger children and one for older children. The aim of the game is to be the first player to collect all 4 chickens. Any colour chicken for younger players and 1 of each colour for older children.

We began by placing all the chicken coops on the board by slotting them in we put the chickens and the farmer card to the side. We pressed the foxes head down in the middle of the tree trunk and were ready to play!

Playing The Game

Everyone takes a Chicken Card (This card is reversible to use for the ‘younger game’ and ‘older game’). So for our first game we played the younger game, as Grace was playing with us so these rules would more be suited to her.

Youngest first so we let Grace start. You spin the game around clockwise when it stops you then take 1 chicken coop away of your choice. Underneath will be either be a farmer or a coloured chicken. If there is a red chicken underneath, you would then take a red chicken from the pile of chickens and place it on your card or if you chose the farmer you would pick the farmer card out, who will protect you from the fox.
You take it in turns to spin it around, collecting chickens as you go. But if you spin and the fox pops out the tree everybody loses 1 chicken from their collection. If you are lucky enough to be holding the farmer card your chickens will be safe and protected. But you must return the farmer card after it has been used!

The first one to collect all of their chickens is the winner!

We think Pickin’ Chicken is a winning game and we thoroughly recommend it.

  1. I love sheep. I used to have a pet lamb as a child, a brilliant companion and taught me so much caring for an animal. They are gentle and friendly and very loving.

  2. It’s cows -used to love milking them when I was younger and still do when I go on holiday to visit family -they are more like pets than farm animals

  3. I love donkeys, they have always been my fave animal, they look so innocent and fed up, I just feel the need to cheer them up 🙂 🙂

  4. Pigs i love the look of them they are friendly and very intelligent. I even like the smell of them. A recent holiday in Denmark was sheer bliss

  5. It’s goats for me – especially the baby ones! Love watching them jump around and play, and love the noise they make!

  6. Just got back from the farm! My favorites was the goats, especially the one that stole my daughter’s cup of feed to have for itself!

  7. I don’t do “favourite” depends on context & my mood but I love sheepdogs as they are working animals that clearly enjoy themselves and we don’t eat them.

  8. I love horses. Was lucky enough to have my own (lost him a few years ago) but have loved them since I was a child. Majestic and strong, they can also do a variety of jobs.

  9. There are so many lovely animals on a farm; especially as there are also specialised farms with Al Pacas and Ostriches…. but my favourite are: Pigs

  10. I love Cows because they are so inquisitive – we are surrounded by miles and miles of countryside and farm animals.

  11. My favourite farm animal is the humble chicken, not only does it lay delicious eggs but it produces very cute chicks!

  12. I quite like goats because they can be really friendly and cute! Especially the babies who love to sit in your lap for a cuddle!

  13. My favourite farm animals are sheep as my daughter loves the noises they make and tries to copy them which is always hilarious 🙂

  14. I’ve always loved cows and their calves, worked on a dairy farm in my teens, love their big eyes & feeding calves

  15. Pigs. Yes I know they are smelly and don’t do much lol, I actually think they are cute! I would love a little pig as a pet!

  16. My favourite farm animal has to be the goat. When I was a child we had a goat called Monday, she stripped the bark from our apple trees and nibbled the cuffs of your jumper when you petted her – but we loved her anyway.

  17. My favourite farm animal is a chicken, because I love the way they amble around with (apparently) no real purpose, and I love eggs 🙂

  18. My favourite farm animals is the pig, I’m obsessed with them, they are just fantastic and really clever and never fail to amuse me

  19. I love sheep. I had a pet lamb when I was younger that wasn’t accepted by his mum so we had to feed him. He was so loving and I loved the little bleating that he did. I love seeing sheep in their woolly jackets. Like fluffy little clouds.. with legs lol xx

  20. My daughter absolutely loves lambs. A friend of ours has a pet sheep and has 2 little lambs and my daughters going her small-holding and bottle feeding the lambs when they were small, and now they play with them in the field! They are so sweet and always come running when they see my daughters.

  21. I love pigs- they just don’t care, have a nap when they feel like it, roll around in the mud and get messy aswell as leaving a little snort here and there. They’re a mix of lazy & fun!!

  22. I love chickens, they are cute and funny also great pets if you have plenty of space outside, would be great to have own eggs : )
