If they don't produce any eggs for the week, Mr. and Ms. Tweedy will have their heads and turn them into chicken pot pies. Just when it seems all hope is lost an American rooster called Rocky, who had just escaped from the circus, falls from the sky into their midst.
Ginger, realising that their best chance of escape is to fly, agrees to protect Rocky from the circus in exchange for flying lessons.
