Chicken Run

Question: Why didn't Rocky simply tell Ginger at the start that he couldn't fly, instead of dragging everyone through that whole charade. I realise that it was crucial to the plot, but was there any other reason?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Because he wanted them all to have something to look forward to, he didn't want to let them down. Plus Rocky is very bigheaded, it would no doubt be embarrassing for him to admit that he couldn't fly.

Question: In the scene where the circus man comes to the farm to find Rocky, Mr. and Mrs. Tweedy come out looking for him. Ginger then runs with Rocky all the way to the other side of the farm and into their own hut. Why didn't they merely run into one of the huts on the side of the farm they were on? It seems this would be much less risky.

Chosen answer: As we see, there's a hiding place within their hut that can conceal Rocky even if the lid of the hut is lifted. If they hid in one of the others, they'd risk discovery if Mr Tweedy decided to look inside, hence Ginger's decision to take Rocky back to her own hut.

Question: I heard that the penguin from Wallace and Gromit appears in the opening scene. Is this true? Could anyone point it out to me?

Chosen answer: Yes, he is in the opening scene.

Question: Did anyone catch what Mac is talking about thrust? Or is she just mumbling?

Chosen answer: The first bit is "Thrust! I went over my calculations, hen, and I figure that the key element we're missing is thrust". Rocky says that he didn't catch a word of it, and Mac replies "Thrust! Other birds like ducks and geese, when they take off, what do they have? Thrust!"

Mistakes

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.
