Chicken Run Wiki

Bunty is a secondary character in Chicken Run. She's the "champion egg-layer" and group cynic who is the most skeptical of Ginger's escape plans.


Bunty is a tall, wide, and burly maroon-coloured hen. Her hackle and thigh feather tips are light-pink. She wears a blue scrunchie around her neck which resembles a necklace. The pink crest on her head is styled as a flat top.

She is physically the largest out of all the chickens.


Bunty is known to be strong, and confident, yet she is sometimes aggressive.


  • In the 2006 feature-length film, Flushed Away, also animated by Aardman, a hen closely resembling Bunty can be seen in the royal book.
  • Bunty was originally going to be a pigeon.
  • Inside one of the chicken coops in Chicken Run, a piece of a newspaper stuck to the wall has a picture of Bunty with the title 'Prized Egg Champion'.
  • In Chicken Run, during the flight training scene, Bunty is seen doing her push-ups on one wing only.
  • Imelda Staunton, Bunty's voice actress, appears in the Harry Potter film franchise as the character Dolores Umbridge.
