    Wash the wound,do this couple of times a day,you can apply an antibiotic ointment(nothing ending in 'caine/cane"toxic to chickens. Check wing to make sure it is not broken. If you are asking whether the hawk will return,the answer is probably yes,the hawk now knows that there are chickens in the area for food. Separate your chicken so that no other chickens peck/pick at this wound.

    Yes, you can use Blue Kote,stains the skin so wear gloves when applying. I believe it can be purchased at any livestock feed store.
