Sisychickenphus is a TADS 2 interactive fiction game and is © 1998 by Lelah Conrad. It was a participant in the ChickenComp event.

In this short pun-filled game, you play as Sisychickenphus, the most persistent chicken in the world. It's time to shoulder a new burden and solve another Eternal Question: WHY are all these chickens crossing the road?

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.
