Voiced By: Julia Sawalha
The unofficial leader of the chickens, who is determined to escape and free her fellow chickens.
- Action Girl: Never shies away from any action, despite being a chicken.
- Badass: Leads the others into escaping with nothing but determination and brains.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Rocky.
- Break the Cutie: Ginger is hit with this hard. First, she faces the realsim that she and the others may never escape. Then, she learns that Rocky lied about flying when she stumbles upon a flyer of him. Which is after Rocky abandons them out of shame.
An American rooster on the run from the circus.
- Chick Magnet: Pun intended. All the hens go gaga over him.

The cruel owner and 'warden' of the chicken farm.

Voiced By: Benjamin Whitrow
A grumpy old cockerel.
- Cool Old Guy: He earns that status by story's end. In the beginning, he's a pompous windbag who doesn't inspire much confidence in the other chickens. When he gives them the idea to build a plane, he seems to earn everyone's respect... until he's outed as a Phony Veteran. When he stands up flies the plane to freedom, he earns their respect for real, as shown by the chicks listening to his stories of the escape with genuine intent.
- Fake Ultimate Hero: While he never outright said he was a wartime hero, his ramblings gave off that impression. When he finally admits he was just the mascot, he insists that it should have been obvious, since no one would employ chickens as pilots.
