I wrote, "The bird eats the pie. Then we eat the bird." which was not accepted. I'm guessing that this translation is OK, it's just not a variation that you thought to enter as a possible acceptable translation?

"then" sounds to me more like ghIq, i.e. just saying what happened later.

vaj is more about the consequence: so, thus, therefore.

i support TARDISToni on this. in this context to me "then" has a touch of understatement, considering the bird's fate and this very calm and practical approach to make the best of the "stolen pie" situation. Just think of sitting in a taj drinking some 'Iw Hiq and reporting the day's events to your friends, (in German my conclusion would be "...tja, wir haben dann den Vogel gegessen...")
