Can I legally kill such protected wildlife as a bald eagle or golden eagle if they are killing my chickens?

No, eagles are federally and state protected wildlife.  Any permit to lethally control them would be issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and only in extremely rare situations, following the exhaustion of all non-lethal control measures.
