|~ Fowler's disapproval and suspicion towards Rocky|
Fowler is a grayish-blue-colored old rooster and the tritagonist of the 2000 film Chicken Run.
He is voiced by the late Benjamin Whitrow.
Fowler is the firm but fair cock of the walk. He enjoys reminiscing of his days in the RAF. He is a wise, tough-as-nails, knowledgeable, old rooster, who maintains order and discipline in the coop. He is also fatherly toward Ginger.
He is stern, assertive, cantankerous, and a little rough around the edges, but genuinely cares about his charge, and has a good heart, though it is hidden under his bad breath, bloodshot eyes, and generally gruff exterior.
When Fowler first met Rocky, he showed a high level of jingoism and called Rocky a "yank". He especially hated having to share his bunk with him, a feeling that Rocky shared. But after Rocky saved Ginger from the pie machine, Fowler started to respect him and even let him take the entire bunk.
Ginger entrusted Fowler to fly the plane that took the Chickens out of the farm. Fowler was initially reluctant, but upon encouragement from Ginger and Bunty, he agreed. Everyone has assumed he was a pilot, when he was simply a mascot.
- Fowler is somewhat similar to Kerchak from Disney's 1999 adoption of Tarzan. Both of them start out at odds with the male protagonist (Kerchak; Tarzan, Fowler; Rocky), but later come to accept them and respect them for their heroic deeds. The only difference is that Fowler lives while Kerchak dies.
