Im looking for this game around 1980-1990 Im not sure of the name but i can tell you it was on those very big floppy disks
-edit- it was for mac, and the floppy disks were either 5.5 inch or 9 inch i cant remeber...

THe first part of the game is

You wake up and you have a sorcerer commanding you around, First you have to go through the house and find things to do the first thing was feed chickens
Then go inside and Empty his chamber pot

and when the sorcerer left you had to try and sneak into his basement place

I always got caught there... But the main thing was you had to TYPE everything you wanted to do

I remeber this game from when i was like 6 or so... So if anyone ould help me find the name of it that would be great... Sadly thats all the information i have on it

King's Quest III? The walkthrough (http://www.gamershell.com/faqs/1156/) seems to match your description.

I'm 99% sure you're describing Kings Quest III: To Heir is Human.
Wiki link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King%27s_Quest_III:_To_Heir_Is_Human)

I owned this game (PC version) years ago, and distinctly remember the wizard, chamber pot, and chickens you describe.

D'oh, I just read your note about a double-post. Please don't do that. I see this has been answered there as well.

Yeah, you're thinking of King's Quest III. I played that game as a kid too. :)

If the disks were large and, well, floppy then you may be thinking of the Apple II version. Also, the original Mac release was black-and-white, while the Apple II version was color.
