Ernest the Chicken story & info
Veronica is worried about her Fiancé who went into the Draynor Manor to ask for directions but hasn’t returned since. You tell her you will find him for her because you are a brave adventurer after all.
As it turns out, Ernest was turned into a chicken by accident while helping out Professor Oddenstein. Luckily, you are there to help turn him back. You’ll need a bunch of items to bring to Professor Oddenstein which are hidden inside the house.
Once you have all the items, Ernest will be turned back into a human and can safely return to Veronica.

Preparing Poisonous Fish Food
Enter the manor through the front door.
Pick up the poison from the Witch’s pantry.
Then, go up the staircase and pick up the fish food from the room with the ghost.
Now use the fish food on the poison to make poisoned fish food.
Go back downstairs and towards the dining room.
Here, search the bookcase. It’s actually a secret room. Here, go down the ladder.
You’ll find yourself in the basement. Where you will have to complete a puzzle. Don’t worry though, we’ve got the results!
Now follow these steps:
- Pull Lever A and Lever B and enter through door 1
- Pull Lever D and exit through door 1
- Pull Lever A and Lever B back up
- Enter door 3, then 4 then 5
- Pull Lever E and Lever F down
- Enter door 6 and then door 7
- Pull Lever C down
- Return through door 7 and then 6
- Pull Lever E back up
- Go through doors 6, then 8, then 3 and finally 9
- Pick up the oil can in the final room
Pretty simple, right?
Now go back upstairs and pull the lever to exit the secret room.
Make your way through the manor to the most eastern room.
There’s a spade here, pick it up.
Now exit through to the garden.
Run around the house until you reach the compost heap. Search it to find a key. (You’ll use the spade)
From here, run south to the fountain.
Add your Poisonous Fish Food to the fountain.
Now search the fountain. You’ll find a Pressure Gauge. (can only be found if the fish inside are dead)
Go back inside the Manor.
Grab the rubber tube from the room with the skeleton (the door is locked but you just found the key in the compost heap).
Now go upstairs and then take the spiral staircase to the top floor.
Here, speak with Professor Oddenstein. He will tell you all about Ernest, who has accidentally been turned into a chicken.
To help him, you’ll need to gather some items. Luckily, you’ve already done that!
Speak with him again to give him the items.
Ernest is human again and your quest is complete!
