** This simple exchange of dialogue reveals every subtle detail we need to know about this scene. Number 1) That morning, Edwina KNEW she was going to die. Number 2) It's clearly stated that if she had told the others, any of them would've most likely been more than happy to give her an egg, allowing her to survive. Number 3) She willingly refused to inform anyone. With those factors in mind, one conclusion is drawn: Edwina was so miserable in the chicken pen that she purposely allowed herself to be chosen as a means of freedom through suicide. Go watch that scene again and wonder if the expression on Edwina's face is fear... or anticipation? *thunk*

** Or consider an alternate interpretation: she became essentially a martyr. Seeing an usually productive hen such as Bunty lay less eggs than usual could have been taken as a sign that she wouldn't have been worth keeping within some weeks. And that could be said of any other chicken. Edwina simply preferred to accept her fate rather than risk having someone else be unjustly killed because of her.

* And then comes the scene a little bit after that, where it's revealed that practically all of them, except for Ginger, have pretty much accepted their fate. ''OUCH.''
-->'''Ginger:''' Think, everyone, think! What haven't we tried yet?
-->'''Bunty:''' We haven't tried ''not trying'' to escape.
-->'''Babs:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Hmmm, that might work!]]
-->'''Ginger:''' ...What about ''Edwina''? How many more empty nests will it take?!
-->'''Bunty:''' Well, perhaps it wouldn't ''be'' empty if she'd spent more time ''laying'', and less time ''escaping!''
-->'''Ginger:''' So laying eggs all your life, then getting plucked, stuffed, and roasted is good enough for you, is it?
-->'''Babs:''' It's a living.

* Rocky, witnessing all the moping around, spies Babs ''knitting a noose.''

to:

* Rocky, witnessing after arguing with Ginger about her being "difficult", sees all the moping other chickens absolutely depressed. They're all just laying or walking around, spies completley heartbroken by the fact they're all going to be killed. Some of them are wiping their eyes from tears and Bunty is just scooping up seed and letting it fall through her hand.
**The kicker?
Babs is ''knitting a noose.'''' Just the hearthbroken expression on her face as she looks at it is enough to bawl your eyes out.

* At the end of the montage of the chickens building the crate, Babs jokingly calls Ginger "doll face" which Rocky used to do. Ginger clearly gets upset hearing this and slowly looks over at his poster, which for some reason she didn't remove.

It then cuts to Rocky far away somewhere, riding a tricycle as he sings "The Wanderer". He acts happy at first, then his expression changes as he sings ''"And when I find myself falling for some girl..."''. He's clearly thinking about Ginger too.

*** The way she is not even resisting, but just meekly hangs there upside down reinforced this.

** Or, as is my guess, Edwina was [[NightmareRetardant really stupid]]. Lets face it, most of these Chickens aren't exactly the brightest bulbs in a pack of light bulbs. These Chickens spend all of their time thinking of escaping, and Egg laying seems to be a secondary thing to them, especially Ginger. Many of them, even the smarter ones, also seem to lack common sense. Edwina could have easily forgotten to ask out of her devotion to the escape, not because she was suicidal or trying to be inspirational... - DingoWalley

* After Bunty tells Ginger that the odds of their escaping were a million to one, Ginger replies sturdily, "Then we still have a chance." She manages to keep her composure until leaving the hut, where she breaks down crying. It's a genuinely emotional moment.
