Chicken Run

"This ain't no chick flick. It's poultry in motion."

Ginger is the leader of the chicken's at Mrs. Tweedy's chick farm in England. Everyday for role-call each of the chickens are accountable for how many eggs they lay. Ginger makes many attempts to escape the Chicken Coop and every time she has been caught by Mr.Tweedy and his dogs and put in a coal barrel for solitary confinement. After he last solitary confinement she is released in time for rolecall. That morning Edwina is found to not have laid any eggs. Mrs. Tweedy then takes her and cooks her up for dinner. At that point Ginger decides it is absolutely necessary that she and all of her friends needed to escape as soon as possible to avoid the chop.

Mr. Tweedy realizes that their family chicken farm is starting to fail and while reading through a magazine realizes they should order a machine to make chicken pot pies. Ginger who sense something is terribly wrong realizes after a rooster falls into their pen that their escape can only be done by going over the fence which is something they are not able to do.

Ginger gets the rooster to try and teach the chickens to fly but it is soon found out that he is just a circus animal. The chickens begin making blue prints and plans to turn the chicken house into a plane so that they can all escape together.

The chickens race against time to build their plane while the Tweedy's work on repairing their malfunctioning pie machine. Once the plane is finished so is the pie machine and Mr.Tweedy tries to grab all the chickens to start making pies but the chickens fight back knocking him unconscious and tying him up.

After encountering Mrs. Tweedy and the hatchet the chickens get their plane into the air and just as their about to make a break for it Mrs. Tweedy tries to weigh them down so they can't leave. Ginger tricks Mrs. Tweedy into cutting the rope of lights she was holding onto with the hatchet and they fly away to freedom.
