Cheeky Chooks is a free, educational, computer game about farming egg laying hens, created for 8-13 year olds with easy links to the Australian curriculum.
The game introduces players to the quirky and inquisitive nature of layer hens and highlights the things they need to have a good life. With 5+ million hens still confined to battery cages in Australia, Cheeky Chooks aims to help people form a connection with hens through a fun and interactive resource. RSPCA Australia has developed materials for a classroom activity that prompts discussion about animal’s needs, and what animal welfare is. This activity can be modified for parents or guardians wishing to spark conversations about animal welfare at home and how it relates to the food we eat - whether it be at home, at school or when eating out.
