Chicken Race (The Henclucky Derby in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.


Somebody's been racing chickens! Looks like it was a photo finish, but the photo's been torn to pieces...

US Version

I need to know which chicken came in seventh place. Think you can figure it out?

Circle the correct answer.

UK Version

You need to work out which chicken came in seventh place.

Circle the correct answer.


Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

Starting with the finish line, examine carefully how the pieces fit together.

Also, the pieces don't rotate.

Because the pieces don't rotate, the finish line marks the left edge of the photo. This means the piece with chicken G and the piece in the far-left middle go together to form the left side of the picture.

If you think about Hint Two, you can find the pieces that make up the right edge of the photo. That's right, the pieces with chicken K and chicken C. Now find the pieces that connect to those ones.

Here's the finishing order through sixth place: G, D, H, L, I, and M.

With the candidates narrowed down, the answer should be a bawk in the park!



Too bad!

It's quite tricky. Think about it carefully before answering again.


Right you are!

Chicken E clucked into seventh place.
