'When she and Rocky hatch a little girl called Molly, Ginger’s happy ending seems complete.'

But while Ginger is living it up, the chickens back on the mainland face, 'a new and terrible threat.'

'For Ginger and her team, even if it means putting their own hard-won freedom at risk – this time, they’re breaking in!'
