Impressive animated comedy adventure, with the voices of Julia Sawalha ,
Jane Horrocks , Miranda Richardson and Mel Gibson. A clutch of hens, led by head chick Ginger , suffers life on a grim 50s egg farm. When the avaricious owners decide to move into the meat-pie business, the chickens fear the worst, and with the help of American rooster, Rocky, the birds start to plan a prisoner-of-war-style escape.
