  • Director Slavko Martinov captures everything with humour and respect, and his coverage of an unfortunately painful battle for the future of the club adds a keen poignancy.

  • A documentary about New Zealand's leading chicken breeders may not immediately seize the imagination, but, like Best in Show, the mockumentary it often resembles, Slavko Martinov's film is often hilarious.

  • Of course, this is a film about human beings as much as it is one about hens. It works because [Slavko] Martinov has found such lively characters.

  • Mostly this is just an enjoyable 90 odd minutes of very attractive chickens and their dedicated owners. Oh and that cockerel having a nice time in front of a hairdryer.
