So a smallish hawk just tried to get one of my pullets, but I came out just in time and it flew off and she is fine! I know it will be back in the next day or so, but how long would you keep them locked away? We normally let them free range our acre yard and it makes me sad to lock them in the run with only sand, but dead chickens is worse, for sure! Thank you.

If the hawk is nesting nearby it's going to be a threat for a while. If you're concerned about your girls needing some green stuff you can them chopped spinach, heads of lettuce. Alfalfa hay. Flakes of straw to dig around in.
