    I'd like to watch some movies that have nice scenes of flocks of chickens in them. Can anyone recommend some titles? They don't have to be about chickens, per se. I've seen CHICKEN RUN, for example, and loved it, but I'm interested in any type of movie that features shots of flocks of chickens anywhere in the film, and especially roosters crowing in the background.

    All tips will be appreciated. The more titles you can think of, the better.

    Thanks in advance.

    There was a movie done by public tv about a silkie hen who was not too chicken to defend her chicks and how wonderful chickens are. Idk what the name of it was.

    I believe you are thinking of The Natural History of the Chicken.

    Babe had chickens in it, including a rooster.

    Thanks for mentioning Chicken Little. I haven't seen that. Sounds fun!

    I watched Smokey & the Bandit and Dukes of Hazard years and years ago. I will watch them again. Hadn't thought about them having chickens in them. Neat!

    Oh my gosh that movie was so ridiculous. It also had a short story about a woman who gave CPR to her chicken (I think it just thawed out from being half frozen). I forgot the name of it too!
