Chicken Run Easter Egg - The Origin of Mr & Mrs Tweedy
OK this is a little complicated but here goes...
Mr & Mrs Tweedy's characters were based on two cartoon characters, Evan Jones and Auntie Sarah, a bungling farmer and an over-dominating female. Who are from an animated film called Fox Tales (I think that's what it's called) who's sound-track was performed by Aled Jones (famed for The Snowman).
Now, in the scene where Mr Tweedy is watching the chickens through binoculars in the house you will hear a song performed by Aled Jones in the background, illustrating a very clever and subtle reminder of how Nick Park was inspired to create Mr & Mrs Tweedy.
