* BrigBallBouncing: It wouldn't be an AffectionateParody of ''Film/TheGreatEscape'' without this trope showing up. After every failed escape attempt, Ginger is put in solitary confinement. While there, she passes time throwing a ball at the wall just like Captain Hilts.

** Nick and Fetcher. They refuse to work for Ginger unless she pays them in eggs, mock the chickens' attempts to fly and insult Rocky once or twice behind his back. On the other hand, they gladly retrieve the items the chickens need [[spoiler:to build the crate with]] once they receive the eggs they want as payment, [[spoiler:attempt to fight off Mrs. Tweedy with Rocky (albeit reluctantly, they are crying when they do it) and are just as happy as the chickens are when they finally escape.

* BaitAndSwitch: Bunty makes one after Ginger says what it's like outside the farm: "In all my life, I've never heard such a fantastic... load of tripe!"

* AloneInACrowd: Ginger at first during the dance scene, until another chicken comes towards her and she ends up against Rocky, which starts their DanceOfRomance.



* BaitAndSwitch: Bunty makes one after Ginger says what it's like outside the farm: "In all my life, I've never heard such a fantastic... load of tripe!"



** Fowler, too, contiunously rambling about the RAF and his time there. Ginger makes use of this later.



* FauxAffablyEvil: Mrs. Tweedy comes across as this when talking to the circus master.



** [[spoiler: When Mrs Tweedy almost beheads Ginger while hanging from the Christmas lights there is a very easy to miss frame where you can see Ginger ducking her head away and the axe severing the Christmas lights]]

** On the tree behind Bunty and Babs at the end, there is a heart carved into the trunk with two names inside it, which are partly indistinguishable but probably meant to say "Ginger and Rocky".



** [[spoiler:After the pie machine explodes, the dogs can be seen behind Mrs. Tweedy happily licking up the gravy all over the floor.]]



* IMeantToDoThat: A variation. Nick says that the radio at the start of the dancing scene is as solid as a rock, and Fetcher lightly punches it. The knob next to him flies off and a spring shoots out. After a brief moment of awkwardness, Fetcher says, "It's supposed to do that."



* ImStandingRightHere: Fowler complains out loud about having to share his bunk with Rocky, while Rocky is lying right next to him. Rocky hits back by saying that Fowler wasn't his first choice of bedmate, either.



* KillEmAll: Mrs. Tweedy intends to do this to the chickens with the pie machine. However, only two, Ginger and Rocky, end up inside it, and both manage to escape.



* LaughOfLove: Rocky dancing with Ginger is when the two start developing feelings for each other, and Ginger is heard laughing at one point.



* LetMeGetThisStraight: Uttered verbatim by Rocky when making sense of Ginger's plan, combined with SuddenlyShouting: "You want to get every chicken in this place out of here AT THE SAME TIME?!"



* ManHug: Nick and Fetcher have one when the chickens manage to escape. And before that, Rocky gives one to Nick and Fetcher [[spoiler:when they get rid of Mrs Tweedy]].

* MatchCut: At the end of the pie machine scene, Mrs Tweedy picks up a pie and aims to hit Mr Tweedy in the face with it. Before the pie makes contact, the scene cuts to Hut 17 and Ginger sticking up the Mrs Tweedy's Chicken Pies sticker for everyone to see.

Added DiffLines:

** Mr Tweedy at the end of the pie machine sequence, right before receiving a PieInTheFace.


Added DiffLines:

* PieInTheFace: Mr Tweedy receives one from Mrs. Tweedy at the end of the pie machine sequence, but thanks to a MatchCut, the scene cuts away before the pie makes contact.


Added DiffLines:

** When the bell rings for the second roll call, Rocky says "Hide me!" three times, while Ginger is fussing over Babs. After the third, Ginger yells at Rocky to hide himself, which he does, as he is later revealed to have hidden in a watering can.


Added DiffLines:

* SquashedFlat: Rocky and Ginger ''almost'' suffer this fate inside the pie machine with their feet stuck in balls of dough.
** Also happens late. During the building of the crate, one hen removes all the nails from a top bunk, causing it to fall and flatten an unfortunate hen on the bunk below.


Added DiffLines:

** Rocky does it too when talking to Ginger early on:
--. '''Rocky:''' "LetMeGetThisStraight. You want to get every chicken in this place out of here AT THE SAME TIME?!"


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Babs has an OhCrap and tells Ginger she hasn't laid any eggs for three days, ''as the bell is ringing for a roll call'', and they have no time to pass off another egg as one of hers. Ginger asks her why she didn't tell them sooner. Babs's reason: "We've been so busy with the flying..." Babs survives, but only because Mrs Tweedy now intends to KillEmAll, anyway.]]

* TooDumbToLive: While many of the chickens tend to fall under this, Babs more often than not personifies this trope. [[spoiler:She doesn't reveal until the second roll call, ''as the bell is ringing for it'', that she hasn't laid any eggs in three days and there is no time to substitute one for her. Thankfully, because of Mrs Tweedy's new plan to kill them all and turn them into chicken pies, Babs survives.]]
** Edwina's an especially unfortunate case, having for whatever reason failed to tell her companions about her lack of eggs until it was far too late. [[note]]Unless you go with the interpretation that Edwina committed suicide, via deliberately not laying eggs or telling anyone about this...[[/note]]

** Nick refers to Ginger as [[AttilaTheHun Attila the Hen]] at one point, and Fetcher proclaims [[Music/TheWeatherGirls "It's raining hen!"]] when the "flying" hens start plummeting to the ground.

* BabiesEverAfter: [[spoiler:In the epilogue, Mac is shown giving a group of peeps a ride in the catapult she had designed at the beginning of the movie. Presumably they're all Ginger and Rocky's. They more than likely are: look at their eyes. Rocky's are brown, Ginger's are green. All the chicks have green or brown eyes. Think about that for a second.]]
