Ready to get Chookin?

Do you have what it takes to be an ultimate Chook rancher? Gonna be straight with ya kid, it can be tough work. These are some CHEEKY CHOOKS, and you're gonna realise quickly if you don’t keep your chooks happy, you'll go bankrupt, financially AND morally!

So many Chooks!

There’s so many different chooks! Probably millions... okay not millions, but a lot! If you want to hatch them all, you're going to need to grow from a small podunk dusthole into a gigantic chicken utopia MEGA RANCH!


Happier chooks means higher quality eggs, keeping your chooks happy means big profits.. but overcrowd them or let them get too hungry and you’ll finally find out why the chicken crossed the road, it was to get away from your negligence!

Move up the ranks, complete missions, and unlock cool upgrades and buildings for your chooks. You're gonna need to stay current to keep up with the innovation revolution and maintain a sustained level of disruption with your free range empire!


  • No ads or in app purchases! 100% free and 100% free range!
  • Build your Chook empire from a small dust bowl to a giant mega ranch!

  • Minigames! Chook facts! Events!
  • Full day/night and weather systems.
  • Protect your Chooks from bad weather and boredom.
  • Sandbox building, put buildings where you want, rotate them as you please, make your ranch with your own personal flair!

i downloaded the chicken gif

Me too

This game is great! Very well done, polished, and feels very complete so far. I've put a couple hours in already, and there's still a lot more to do. I have a feeling I'm going to spend forever just tweaking my farm to make it look pretty. 

Also, i have a question, 

Why does the happyness rating go down when you hatch a new Chook?


Oh, and it would be handy if you could see what events could happen like pumpkin bash.

Best game i've played out here, 10/10 rating, really like the art and the fact that it's still fun to play while not idle.



I haven't played it yet, but it might be fun & interesting from the screenshots that I've looked at here on this game's page.

I seriously do not know how to download it.....

No idea as to why you randomly replied to me, but you're going to have to talk to me via Twitter, www.twitter.com/VampireLord1024. Make sure to check the pinned Tweet at the top of my Twitter profile so you'll know how to send me a direct message, as I do not talk via comments, sorry!

Made a gameplay video of it!

Hey thanks! We have an update just round the corner, so keep a beak out for it!

Really been enjoying this. So relaxing and cute. The mini-games are a joy. xD

Okay super fun. Super cute. Run very well. I love it


can you make a version for apple computers or apple phones

Nice and polished

I`ts time to update the banner image =)

omigosh... I think I updated, and forgot to save. :s 
Thank you for pointing this out. :D


Heya! experiencing what I at least think is a small bug, not sure where else to report it but here! 

It says I have a notification for the Legends quest screen, and has done for the majority of the game, but when I actually click on the tab t's blank. A reinstall did nothing, though I haven't tried backing up my files, uninstalling entirely, then putting them back after a reinstall, but I'm not entirely confident in knowing how to do so. ^^'' 

Christmas update?

where are you ?


more updates  it kills me to have beaten the game already i really like your game you guys would be awesome to add a ton of more teirs.

I uh... broke the game. First time i played it..... So, my computer started lagging out due to some other things i had turned on... So i exited out of the game. By clicking the X, not any in-game buttons. When I turned it back on, the fence and surrounding stuff was invisible, and i can't get it to reappear.... It's still very much playable, but either way it's a bug X/

And just after i posted that, it started working again. Welp.

Hey, at least it IS working!

Im LOVING it so far. Really hope theres a thanksgiving and christmas event. it was fun gaathering the legendaries

I reviewed this for my site, https://scoffingames.com/2018/11/13/cheeky-chooks-beta-review/ . I really liked it, but I hope more things are added to keep me engaged. There needs to be more variety and reasons to keep playing it instead of waiting for chooks to lay eggs in late-game to complete tasks :-) Thank you for making this!

Ooh this game is fantastic! It's like some kind of idle/tamagotchi/tycoon game, with adorable ridiculous chickens. I tested it on my work computer, but I can't wait for the mac version to come out so I can properly invest in my chicken farm. :)


Sounds a bit silly and obviously wouldn't be a HUGE change to the game, but I thought it would be cute if underneath each individual chook description  (chicken icon < click on a chicken's name < information about that chook) it would be cute to add more info to their personality? Maybe like:

Penelope loves playing in the pool!

Best Friend: Abigail

Dislikes: Rachel 

Just gives them a bit more information to their personality ! :) 

Hey.... im creating a sandbox of CC

what do you want me to build next????

subscribe to see more building idea :D

whats the max level for incubators? its an amazing game though i love it so much!


There is NO MAXIMUM! Whaaaa? Ultimate cash sink! Thank you so much, we have it out now on Steam also with achievements and such and hey, why not check out our discord if you feel so inclined. :D

Hello! I am playing via steam, is there an easy way to reset the game? I reinstalled but everything was still there. Not sure how to restart!

Hi! We really underestimated how much people would want to play the game in a sitting (we have so many people asking just this!), and have some cool ideas on how to fix this. Right now the only way is to go in and manually make back ups of your save files. It always saves to the same place, so just reinstalling the game wont fix it.
We have cool ideas on how to add new game+ or the ability to make new farms/profiles but it would be for at least another update, NEXT UP RACES! If you want to keep super up to date why not jump in our discord? Were super friendly/active and love feedback!

No worries! Just to clarify, there is currently no way to fully reset the game?

Not yet! But its on a bunch of lists. :D


So fun, I also got all the halloween chooks! Please don't leave this game for dead, because it is super fun. I really want to see more chooks and special event type of things and updates!


Oh ho ho! You are going to be so excited when you go check out our dev logs or jump in our discord.
Chook Races, coming really soon! Along with 3 more Legendary Chooks with more on the way!


this is my ranch after a month

That's gotta be the most impressive choock farm ever. But does it play fortnite?

there are no fortnite in this ranchtopia but they waiting for warcraft 3 reforged

the fifth race : chicken man

speciality : the cluckening

The cluckening lol


I can't belive how much fun this is! I'm playing it on my phone and i can't say anything bad about it. For a free game it has a lot to offer. The graphics are really good for a free game too and the animations are so good! The game is only about chooks, but you can have fun for a really long time. I can't say anything bad about it. Not even the music gets boring and it's the same all the time! I have only one question: Are there predators, because i haven't seen any. My farm is still level 0 so maybe they will come wehn it's level 1? I hope so. A little difficulty with predators would be fun I believe. All in one a really fantastic farming game. I can't complain.


I really enjoyed this game! Thanks so much


Hey there! Thank you SO much. Its so cool seeing content like this pop up, peeps like you are the best. :D We have lots in store, so chook a look back soon.. in fact any day now, things gonna get spooky up in here...


Buck Buck Bagawk!

Pok! Popa! POPAHKAYYY!  :D


Great game. I love the soft soundtrack and the visuals. It's very cute and entertaining. There were points in the game that were pretty slow. You should add some fun little minigames involving the chooks that you own that will raise the stats of that chook a little everytime you play a game with them. Overall a great game. Keep up the good work!

Thanks a tonne for the feedback! We've had a lot of people say the same thing, and we've been smashing out some updates for the game to solve those issues. Whats fun is that we are making exactly what you are asking for here... :P We have some stuff coming up that we hope will flesh out the game a whole lot. We have added more interactions on the farm, you will now get attacked by pests/predators at night, as well as new buildings and chook types that will mix things up a bit. We are going to have a spooky event any day now that will start to introduce all this stuff... as well as the first Legendary Chooks.

THEN we have Chook Races coming. You will be able to train a chook (and eventually a team of chooks) to compete in races. :D
Ofc the races will have a bunch of cool rewards and progression and all that cool stuff too. And even more Legendary Chooks!

LOVE this game, but could you slow down the rescources depleting when the app is not running?


I love the game! I wish it would get more features in the future but right now I am so satisfied with the demo because it's so relaxing and all the chooks are so adorable. I especially love their flying animations!

They are so cute. Keep it up!

We are working real hard on some really great updates, as well as a spooky Halloween Event starting next week! Thanks for the love, and keep a beak out for more chook action.

Hey! Thanks a lot for the feedback, its stupid late here but I will watch that vid first thing. :) 
We agree with the points you make here, ultimately we only had about 10 weeks to get it done (it was in partnership with RSPCA who are using it in a educational campaign).
HOWEVER after we got so much love, we decided we needed to smash out some content and smooth out those rough edges. We are adding minigames, more direct interactions with the chooks, as well as unique one of a kind Chooks. So hopefully we keep you chookin until we can get that out... we HOPE end of this week, alongside an iOS version and Steam release.

How do you download the game?AND WHICH FILE IS IT IN.

Well you can definitely consider me hooked on chooks!

I'm a massive fan of management and tycoon games, I remember when I got crazy addicted to Theme Park back in the day to the point I would wait until my parents had gone to bed and sneakily turn my Mega Drive on and play the night away. Good times!

Anywho, Cheeky Chooks really took me back to those carefree childhood days, with the added bonus of raising super cute chooks! The learning curve isn't too steep and everything is laid out really nicely so it's easy to know what you're looking at, what you're buying and what your goals are.

The chooks themselves are downright adorable, I love how they have various moods that pop up above their heads and that they have little squawky conversations between themselves.

Getting enough money saved up to get to the next farm level did take a wee bit of time though, which slowed the fun down a little bit. Getting to the next level was totally worth it in the end though, and I'm really looking forward to playing some more of this of hatching myself some more rare chooks!

I can't wait to see what additions and transformations this game is going to go through as you work on it more, and you can count me in for sure! Keep up the awesome work =)


I just logged on, and my happiness was at -55 because I hatched a bunch of golden Chooks and about half of them left! What do I do?!

I literally have to re-install! :( :( :( i was at farm level 3!

Oh no! Sorry about the late reply its the weekend here. Golden Chooks are a lot more upkeep than the other chooks, at least -5 per chook. If you hatched a lot and then got unlucky with a rainy day, or low food this can really affect your happiness level.

The more Chooks you have, the more unhappiness you create due to crowding. If they get too unhappy Chooks will decide to leave until you bring the happiness back up. 
Or was there some kind of bug do you think that stopped you/made too much unhappiness? 

Either way, it sucks you have to start over, if you email me at contact@trilumstudios.com or join our discord I may be able to help boost you back up!

i just refilled all the food and water and bought/upgraded loads of stuff, i was at a maximum level farm too :(

also its cos i hatched 10 golden chooks at once

Ahhh yeah that will do it unfortunately... 
You can also remove chickens from your farm if you run into something like that again.
If you go to the chook menu, click an individual chook, you can use the garbage can icon to remove said chook from your farm.

Be careful with those gold chooks though!

Just logged on today.... I had 75 chooks before. I now have 9 chooks, and i was going to delete them all and start again but none will delete, and it keeps saying *blank* has left your farm for some reason... Oh, and my happiness is at -119. I guess that means I'll have to restart...

This game was pretty Adorbs! Nice little chicken sims XD

the game is 27mb??? or 34 on pc not android or ios

Hi! The listed file sizes are the compressed download for the game!
Once installed and uncompressed its 83Mb. :)

"You're beautiful...waow"
