[edit] Hints

Hint One
    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.

Hint Two
    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.

Hint Three
    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.
