Unlike anything ever seen on the big screen, CHICKEN RUN is the year's most original comedy hailed by critics and audiences alike as "magical entertainment for all ages!" (Roger Ebert, Roger Ebert & The Movies)

While the chickens on evil Mrs. Tweedy's farm dream of a better life, a clever hen named Ginger is hatching plans to fly the coop – for good! The only problem is, chickens can't fly...or can they? Every escape attempt goes fowl until Rocky, a smooth-talking All-American rooster, crash-lands into the coop. It's hardly poultry in motion when Rocky attempts to teach Ginger and her fine feathered friends to fly... but, with teamwork, determination and a little bit o' cluck, the fearless flock pilots one last daring attempt in a spectacular bid for freedom!

Featuring unforgettable characters, incredible animation, and all-star voice talent, this instant classic from the Academy Award®-winning† creators of Wallace & Gromit is eggs-traordinary fun for the whole family!

Easter Eggs
There are 12 hidden eggs on the Chicken Run DVD (there's even a section on the special features menu that gives you a hint on how to find them). Each egg contains a factoid about the making of the movie. The eggs appear as "cracked eggs" and are completely hidden until highlighted. Once highlighted they appear green or orange.

1. Above Main Menu in Subtitles 2. Below 2.0 in Audio 3. Above Main Menu in Special Features 4. Pg.5 in Production Notes 5. Between Scenes 17-18 in Scene Selection 6. Next to TVSpot in Trailers/Spots 7-10. Mel Gibson, Jane Horrocks, Tony Haygarth, Meldon Stuarton, all under Cast Bios 11+12. Loyd Price and Dave Riddett in Crew Bios.

The beauty part is you only have to find one egg to get all 12 factoids. Here's how: Once you click the egg a new menu will appear with the factoid and a "back" link. Click the "back" link and you're taken back to the menu you originated from. Simply click on the same egg again and now you're taken back to the same menu only with a different factoid. Do this enough times and you'll cycle through all 12 facts.
