Corrected entry: Fowler dances with a rose in his teeth. How did he get that? It doesn't seem like there'd be any growing in the farm.

Correction: The rose could have grown anywhere on the farm, perhaps in a pot indoors, or it could be a plastic decoration, or maybe one of the rats brought it for him. There are dozens of possible explanations.

Corrected entry: The entire plane seems to be struggling when Mrs. Tweedy tries to get in by the wire. Later on, Ginger is able to hold on to the part of wire Mrs. Tweedy is on with one hand.

Correction: The reason why the plane is struggling so much is because Mrs, Tweedy is so heavy that she is holding the plane down and then when Ginger has cut the wire the extra weight is no longer there so the plane can return to normal.

Corrected entry: Nick and Fletcher use a clay gnome to disguise themselves to look for equipment. However, that gnome had its head bitten off by a dog in the beginning of the film.

Correction: Mrs Tweedy only had one gnome on the whole farm?

Corrected entry: When the chickens are flying in the plane (as Ginger is trying to get rid of Mrs. Tweedy) they seem to have flown quite far in a straight line. Yet when Ginger finally cuts Mrs. Tweedy off, they are flying over the farm again. They must have a lot of chickens to need a farm that big.

Correction: When Fowler turns to avoid the billboard, he does a 180 and flies back in the direction of the farm, and they're over top of it again when Mrs. Tweedy falls.

Corrected entry: When Rocky flies in to the farm, he is not wearing a backpack. When he wakes up in the hut, he's not wearing a backpack, but one appears just as he dives out the door.

Correction: He's wearing the backpack beneath his cape; you can see the straps going over his shoulders. Presumably the chickens took it off after he crashed, along with his cape.

Corrected entry: Rocky uses a coat hanger to slide on a wire from the top of a hut to the top of the barn where the pie machine is. But the huts are only 4 feet high, while the round opening in the barn is easily 20 feet up. How can Rocky defy gravity and make the slide upwards?

Correction: He slides from the top of a telephone pole, not a hut.

Corrected entry: In the scene when Rocky receives a pin for bravery, he pins it on his handkerchief tied around his neck. In the next scene when he is sitting on the roof with Ginger, the pin is gone.

Correction: He's holding the pin in his hands when we see him on the roof. When he notices Ginger there, he sets the pin down beside him instead of putting it back on.

Corrected entry: Mrs. Tweedy stops the malfunctioning pie machine by unplugging it. Yet later, as Mr. Tweedy repairs it, he tries to restart with the actions and sound effects of a machine powered by an internal combustion engine.

Correction: The electricity is for the starter motor. The machine also has a gas oven, hence uses electricity, diesel and gas (Still tired of making miniscule profits? This machine sounds expensive to me).

Corrected entry: When Nick and Fetcher bring the radio into the pen, it is about as tall as Rocky. Yet later, when he is on the tricycle, it is small enough to put in a little basket. How is this possible?

Correction: The radio on Rocky's tricycle is different to the radio in the hut when they are throwing a party. The big radio is blue, and the other on Rocky's tricycle is white.

Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Tweedy gets the idea of converting her farm when reading the brochure called "Sick and tired of making minuscule profits," a wedding picture of the husband and wife is seen on a cupboard at the back. Then, in the next shot, as Mrs. Tweedy slams her hand on her desk that same picture suddenly happens to be on the desk.

Trivia: Chickens don't have teeth, even though every chicken in this film is shown to have a full set. This is because of the traditional Aardman animation to have every single character to have a cheesy grin.
