    It certainly isn't a hawk. It looks like a bearded chicken, I'm not sure what breed.

    It is definitely a chicken and NOT a hawk. I hope it has survived being let loose in the wild. Inaccurate information is worse than none at all.

    Hi! Go back and get your chicken and find a suitable home for it.
