Mr and Mrs Tweedy run a sinister chicken farm within their 1950s Yorkshire estate, which doubles up as a concentration camp for the poor, repressed chickens.

Can Ginger and her pals escape before they face the chop?

So, how does the movie end??

Rocky leaves, tunnelling under the fence with a spoon, and the remaining chickens fights amongst themselves.
  Ginger comes up with a plan - to build themselves a plane, just like in the RAF. They bribe the rats with eggs to get them all the parts they need.
  They build it just in time, as the pie machine is just about ready. Mr Tweedy catches the chickens with all his equipment, but they revolt and tie him up under an out building.
  They all board the plane ready to leave, but Mr Tweedy hops onto the runway. Ginger gets off and arranges the ramp - but Mrs Tweedy comes on the scene with an axe. Just about to chop her head off, Rocky rings the bell on his little bike and jumps the fence - and saves Ginger.
  They all board the plane and take off - but have an unwanted passenger as Mrs Tweedy is climbing up the Christmas tree lights trailing from the back of the plane. Ginger desperately tries to cut the wire with safety scissors - the lady climbs a little higher and swings back the axe ... then chops it down - and Ginger's head is missing.
  Mrs Tweedy laughs. Rocky screams.
  Then Ginger unfolds her head ... and shows the wire, cut by the axe.
  The lady falls to earth and lands in the main pipe to her machine. The pressure builds up to dangerously high levels, and explodes.

The plane crash-lands on a chicken sanctuary on an idyllic little island somewhere in the Great British countryside, and they all live happy little carefree chicken lives.
