A. Behind your back if I can.
With at "A" makes a spring to catch one of the chickens but "B" spreads out her arms to prevent it happening. But at last "A" gets a chicken and pretends to cut the head off it. Then "A" leaves the chicken aside and gets another and another till they are all caught. Each chicken that she gets she leaves it aside till the game is ended. Then the game starts again. This game is still played.
