** 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:and are just as happy as they are when the chickens finally escape.]]

* 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.

* 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.]]

* HeroesWantRedheads: Rocky starts falling for Ginger after they dance during the "Flip, Flop, Fly" scene.



** Rocky. Ginger couldn't stand him at the beginning, and flees the farm out of shame, but his conscience makes him return and he saves Ginger's life twice.

** Rocky. Ginger couldn't stand him at the beginning, and [[spoiler:and flees the farm out of shame, shame]], but he proves to be fearless and caring in the end. He organises the "Flip, Flop, Fly" number to motivate the chickens to escape (and calls Ginger out by telling her that BrutalHonesty won't work),[[spoiler: after he flees the farm, his conscience makes him return return]] and he saves Ginger's life twice.



** Invoked by Rocky, who tells Ginger that BrutalHonesty ''isn't'' going to work ("You know, if you want people to do something, you ''don't mention death''.") Indeed, the chickens' morale is at its nadir after one of Ginger's speeches.

* 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.

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Averted like hell. Mrs. Tweedy is clearly a monster and her husband is just one of many whom she makes suffer.

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Averted Played straight in a brief scene near the end when Ginger slaps Rocky in anger, but for the most part, averted like hell. Mrs. Tweedy is clearly a monster and her husband is just one of many whom she makes suffer.
