That does sound like a great opportunity for chickens. I pasture raise my birds on 19acres and they love it. I've got a wide variety of breeds but from my experience australorps, Easter eggers, Rhode Island reds, Orpingtons, Lakenvelders, and our barred rocks are the best foragers for our free...
In my experience, I've never seen movement when I candle. There is always hope. I had 3 out of 6 shipped hatching eggs hatch after I was in a horrible car accident with them. There is always hope but do not expect a high hatch rate :/
I would wait another 2 weeks and send more pics to be sure. Though, the second chick pic looks to be a cockerel. The shape of the wattles are pretty large at this age and very red. Too young to be 100% certain but that's my observation. :)

Yikes. It sounds like she is still snapping out of hypothermia. If her wings are floppy as well...thats not good. I was thinking sparkle leg if it was just her legs, but if she's had a day or two to warm up and she's not better or showing improvement...I'd cull her. :(
I would definitely wash it out fist to see the extent of the injury. Whenever I treat injuries like this, I spray on a purple disinfectant spray. I will have to get the label for you but it helps prevent picking and infection.
Attacked your husband?? And two more in the tree? Goodness, that is not a good sign. If there is no improvement then I would recommend talking to a wildlife professional about it, as hawks are illegal to kill. I would keep your remaining duck housed until the hawk issue dies down. May I ask what...
