    Out to pasture
    You have to tell us more if you want detailed help. Do your birds free range? If they do, are bushes or tall plants where they can hide? If they stay in an enclosed run, you can avoid further attacks by putting a cover on your run. Photos of your set up would more bring more suggestions.

    On the MN prairie.
    Do you have a covered run you can keep them in for awhile to discourage the bird? If not, is your coop large enough to keep them in there for a week or so? Other than that, I really don't know what else you can do.
