Become a virtual egg farmer and build your own hen-pire
Cheeky Chooks is the RSPCA’s virtual game where kids (and adults alike) can put their farmer hat on and take care of some cheeky chooks. Get to know your hen’s cheeky personalities and make sure they’re always safe and happy. Build coops and perches, keep food and water full and add lots and lots of fun things to your farm. The aim? To keep these smart and curious birds playing and laying eggs!
It’s completely free, with no in-app purchases, and it’s available now from your favourite app store.
Playing cards with Cheeky Chooks
You don’t have to play Cheeky Chooks online, you can also download our interactive card game. Follow the activity with kids to create a fun lesson in the home, which teaches children about the individual personalities of these quirky birds.
