Hungry Chickens

How to Play:

Everybody is given a number, either 1 or 2. Ensure there are more 2s than 1s. The 1s are told they are chickens. The 2s are chickens in disguise. The announcer announces "chickens" At such a juncture everybody walks around bobbing their head, flapping their wings and making chicken noises. The announcer then proceeds to announce "Hungry chickens". At this point all of the chickens in disguise reveal their true identity and hold out their hands flat as plates. Every real chicken must find a plate and start pecking at it with their hand in the shape of a chicken's beak. There may only be one chicken per plate, and every chicken who fails to find a plate dies of hunger. Tell a few of the plates that they are now real chickens and then the game continues by the announcer announcing "chickens". The game continues until all the chickens have died of hunger bar 1, ie the winner.
