Freda is bored with life in the henhouse. She wants to see the world, and have adventures! So one day she sneaks away from her hen friends and power-walks to the creek. Freda soon finds that life outside the farmyard can be a challenge, but because she is such a gifted chook, such a thinking chook, she manages to get herself out of trouble. Even being lost isn't a concern for this confident, role-model hen! However, when Freda finds herself stuck up a windmill, with a huge feral cat lying in wait for her below, she realises that too much adventure can be a very bad thing. Apart from that, a windmill is not the place to lay an egg.
