foxes are hiding the chicken carcasses in a bush, which is the score
pile, then this either means that chickens in the score pile are
worth double their face value, or they are worth exactly 2 points
each. We need some clarification on this.

count cards in your hand toward your score.
The German is a little ambiguous:
"Nun zahlt jeder seine gesammelten Korner (unterschiedliche Werte je
Farbe beachten!) und Geflugel (je nach Kartenwert) zusammen."
which basically says "Now each player totals his grain (different
colors are worth different values) and fowl (the worth of each card)
It doesn't explicitly exclude cards in your hand, but it doesn't
explicitly include them. Further, the rules state that you put grain
and fowl your foxes eat in your "Nahrungsvorrat" or "nutrition
supply". Then, after the rule about totaling up points: "Der Spieler
mit den meisten Siegpunkten hat seinent Hunger am dauerhaftesten
gestillt..." which is "The player with the most points has satiated
his hunger the best..." implying that only "eaten" cards/grain count
toward your points.
