Question A Fox, Chicken, and Bird Feed

I need to get all these across the river, but I cannot leave the fox with the chicken because the fox will eat the chicken, and I cannot leave the bird feed with the chicken because the chicken will eat the bird feed.

So I take it you have a canoe or a small boat that you can use to get across and you can only carry 2 things at a time.......yourself and 1 other thing.

On your first trip, you take the chicken on the boat with you. Drop off the chicken and come back. Next you take the bird seed. Drop off the bird seed, pick up the chicken and return. Once you get to the other side, drop off the chicken and pick up the fox. Drop off the fox (won't eat the bird seed) and return to pick up the chicken!

That might work, no?

Jajaja, I liked the joker above the animals of your story, but if you might have a bit boat, you will can take to the bird and the chicken to the at a time, but if you let to the chicken, the fox perhaps will eat to the chicken, but Elaina's answer suffixed more logical in solve the problem of transport of the animals in your boat small.
