Sprout is a hen forced to live out her days in captivity on an industrial egg farm. More than anything, Sprout longs for the freedom to hatch a baby chick of her own and is heartbroken as, each morning, she must give up her eggs to the farmer’s wife.

After Sprout escapes into the wild, she discovers an unprotected egg with mysterious origins. With a fierce maternal instinct, Sprout takes the egg under her own protection in the hopes that it will one day hatch. She also befriends Straggler, a wild duck who, like her, hasn’t quite found his place in the world. Both Sprout and Straggler find themselves defending against the elements, the antagonism of other barnyard animals, and the sly one-eyed weasel who is always in search of his next meal. Throughout it all, Sprout is the plucky, indefatigable heroine of the story, who must eventually come to terms with the immense sacrifices of being a mother.
