Chicken Run Wiki

Edwina was a minor character in Chicken Run. She was killed by Mrs. Tweedy at the beginning of the film as she was no longer able to lay eggs, so she was no longer useful to their cause. She ended up becoming the Tweedy's dinner.

She refused to inform her fellow hens of her infertility, either because she did not want to make them look infertile and risk their lives, or because life at the farm had made her utterly miserable that she lost all hope and so sought death as the better option.


  • In the television show, Rex The Runt, also animated by Aardman, Edwina makes an unnamed cameo appearance in the twelfth episode of the second series titled "Wayne The Zebra".
