    You need to make your question more clear. Do your chickens free-range? Do you have feeders in an uncovered area? Have you actually seen hawks? Have there been attempts by hawks? Might be as simple a fix as netting over your run.

    Do you mean song birds coming to the song bird feeders? Not the chickens and chicken feeders, right?
