The Eagle must stay in front of the Mother Hen. She holds out her arms to protect the chicks from the Eagle, who tries to touch one. The line of chicks moves back and forth as Mother Hen tries to protect them. If a chick is touched, she goes behind the Eagle. The last chick to be touched is the Eagle the next game.
