Hi, can anyone tell if it's healthy for a harris hawk to eat chicken breasts or even pork meat? I usually feed him quail but I can't get in every butcher shop

Not a clue on their dietary needs but you can buy frozen quail online.

have you try to buy frozen day old chicks
I used them when I had a snake a few years ago
can not remember where I got them from
I think it was from a chicken farm by Bristol
but I found this site which may help you out for now
https://www.reptilecentre.com/frozen-quail-and-chicks-f65173_65176.htm
or you could try to bread Chinese quails
which do bread very easy

It is best to get whole foods, you can pick up a fair selection of frozen chicks/mice/rats/quails online.

yes whole foods is best if you can get them
as you get the bones feathers guts and all the other stuff
which will give a lot of protein and vitamin for your bird
you could always have a drive around
and see if you could find a place where they bread chickens
or just google for a chicken farm

How worrying that you have this bird in your care and you don't even know its dietary needs. Definitely don't feed it pork it will kill the bird. You should be under the guidance of a mentor. Feed the bird rabbit, mice, rats, day old chicks, quail etc. For the sake of the bird find someone that knows what they are doing and go with their advice.
