Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Crazy Coot

How to play:
The Eurasian Coot (Fulica atra) lays a huge clutch of eggs - typically 12. Infant mortality is extremely high though with only 1 or 2 of the original clutch making it to adulthood. Surprisingly enough the reason for this is infanticide - adults become so enraged at the constant demands of their small tribe they kill them off one at a time.

In this game you control a parent coot determined not to follow this evolutionary path. Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to direct the adult coot towards the eggs (in their nests) and in so doing collect the chicks behind you. Do not run off the edge of the pond and whatever you do - don't run into your growing flock of chicks.

The game ends when you collect 50 chicks. Good luck.

If the game does not begin when you press one of the keys, click on the game area with the mouse and try again.
