Wolves and Chicks is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

Puzzle

Get the three wolves and three chicks seen below to the other side of the river while obeying the following conditions.
-No more than two animals can ride the raft at the same time.
-There must be at least one animal on the raft in order for it to move.
-If more wolves than chicks stay on either side of the river, the wolves will eat the chicks, and you'll have to start over.

You can move the raft as many times as you like, but this feat can be accomplished in as few as 11 moves.

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

Do you find yourself moving the raft back and forth only to end up with the animals back in the start position?

Somewhere within your movements, you are doing something that restores the animals to their original positions. When you've found that point, try to do something different than you have thus far. It might bring you closer to the answer.

You don't necessarily have to take two animals over on every trip and then bring only one back. Sometimes you may want to bring two animals back.

For starters, try getting all three of the wolves to the right side. Then you can slowly start swapping out wolves for chicks.

Let's recap the previous hint. First, get all the wolves to the right side of the river. Then, start swapping the wolves for chicks.

When you start to have too few chicks on the left bank of the river, you can bring a chick back over with a wolf to keep your remaining chick from getting eaten.
