    Hello,

    In a random search for chicken related material on the web i stumbled onto here.

    I work for an animation company who are currently making a short film titled Why Did The Chicken Cross the Road? and thought you guys may like to chick out our little trailer!

    You can find out more about our funny little film here:

    Hopefully it won't be too long until we can share the conclusion.

    Lets just say the answer is not as simple as first thought!

    I think he was trying to cross the road again when he escaped and he ate all our custard creams. The pesky little chicken!!

    It's true, chickens are partial to a few custard creams...

    I tried and was rubbish! BUT - I am blaming the mouse which just didn't want to respond. When I'm back at work we'll have to have a competition based on this one!! Thanks Jake!

    I had a go on Lyle's laptop and he likes his mouse much more sensitive than me so it made it really hard!

    My mouse just wouldn't move when I asked it to! Its usually OK so I assume it just doesn't like the game or the web site. It'll give me something to do when I'm bored at work (after I've spent a month catching up on the work I should be doing now!)

    My mouse was the same, Kate; suddenly 'jumped' to the top of the picture. Odd.

    Mine kept sticking at the side! Maybe its fixed so that we can't beat the score of the developers!! :wink:

    I have made the mouse cursor visible instead of hidden during the game, which should eradicate the sticky problem caused when the mouse slips off the screen!

    After a few more small tweaks, the stickyness should be smoothed out.

    Thanks for your feedback on the game.

    Good luck in getting to the top of the leaderboard!

    Keeper of the hens

    I seem to be doing rubbish at the catching the eggs game recently - mouse controls much better now too! I have a question, do the eggs get harder to catch the longer you're playing, or is it luck?! :smile:

    Applogies for such a delayed response.

    The eggs do indeed get harder to catch as the game goes on. Theres an increase in the amount of eggs generated as you play. An element of luck is involved which comes down to how many of the blue trill boxes you are lucky enough to see and catch! 980 is the current top score which has been there for quite some time!!
