Chickens do not die by the hen’s kick.
The hen scratches and the chicken learn.
You don’t have to kill the chicken to get eggs.
You are blaming the hawk, the falcon is killing the chickens.

The thief has a chicken’s heart — he sleeps in fear.
You can’t cook one half of a chicken and expect the other half to lay eggs.
Like a chicken without a head.
