Quick Take: Stuff chickens in the fox's pockets and then catch as many as you can when his pants fall down. Kids find this as hilarious as you think they might. There are so many games in this genre (Pop the Pig, Doggie Doo, Banana Blast, Flushin' Frenzy) but this one didn't involve poop and didn't seem too loud or annoying so it was the one I chose. These games exist because they are the ones that involve little to no instruction and are fun to play when friends come over, regardless of whether or not those friends generally play games. They are not for grown-ups to play with the kids unless you are a nicer grown-up than me. 

How to Play: Your goal is to be the first to fill your chicken coop with chickens. Each turn you roll the die and the number you roll is the amount of chickens you place in the fox's pant pockets. After you have done this you push down once on the fox's head. After a random number of turns the fox's pants fly down and the chickens all fall out. Using only one hand, you take chickens one at a time and place them in your coop as quickly as you can. If someone is able to completely fill their coop at this time, they win. If everyone still has empty spots in their coops you pull the fox's pants back on him and start playing again until someone has a full coop.  

Variations: It is really hard for younger kids to remember to just use one hand to pick up chickens while playing this game. If you like you can adjust the rule to kids using both hands but just picking up one chicken at a time. This keeps people from grabbing handfuls of chickens which is really the entire point of the one hand one at a time rule.
