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.
Continuity mistake: When Ginger is hiding in that metal thing to stop the gate from closing to let the other chickens out, she runs to shut it and it shows a close up of her and the gate closing on her. You can see the gate is almost shut, but when the camera cuts to a differnt angle, the gate is wide open.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, Mrs. Tweedy slams into a billboard advertising her chicken pot pies. When she reappears, she has on her face a picture of her face that has ripped off the billboard. In actuality, the picture would be turned around. In other words, the picture of her face would be facing her real face, and you would see only white paper and glue.
Continuity mistake: Rocky escapes on a telephone wire through a round window into the shed with the pie machine. The bracket holding the wire is attached exactly above the window. Later, when Mrs. Tweedy involuntarily skydives from the plane, she enters the shed through the same round window (the bracket is visible above it) but she does not hit the wire on her way down.

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Tweedy collects the eggs, he adds check marks in Tuesday's column on the list he holds. In Monday's column it reads that chickens 276 and 277 did not lay eggs the day before. However, when the list is submitted at the end of the week, there are check marks in Monday's column for chickens 276 and 277, as if they did lay eggs.

Factual error: When Bunty is the first to test the 'thrust' with the elastic, she is attached to a rope, which winds on for metres and metres, attached to a post at the other end. Why then, does it take a second or two for Bunty to be flung from the roller skate (or whatever she was travelling on) from the point we see the rope at full taughtness?
Plot hole: As Rocky slides down the machine, he falls into the shaft where spinning razors almost kill him. He avoids this fate only by grabbing onto a long metal bar and sliding down a great distance to the part of the machine where the dough for the pies is prepared. He immediately sees that Ginger has arrived there, however given that the long metal bar was not there before Rocky grabbed hold of it, it is inconceivable that Ginger could have made it to the dough section of the machine. It was a direct drop down the shaft towards the spinning razors and the opening leading to the dough was well out of the way.
Other mistake: Ginger is adamant that she will not approve any plan of escape that does not get all the chickens on the farm out and to freedom. The problem is, not one of her plans gets anywhere close, and it is not that they fail to liberate the whole farm - they are never planned that way. We see her trying to escape by herself three times. The mannequin of Mrs Tweedy would (had it worked) have allowed nine chickens to escape, the upturned feed tray just seven. Even the 'crate' appears to hold not more than thirty chickens - and there must be several hundred on the farm, at least.
