Am I lazy if I say "Is hen a bird"? It wasn't accepted.

Both "a" and "the" are accepted. But "Is hen a bird" sounds like you're asking if someone whose name is Hen is a bird... :-)

Can this word order can only mean "Is a hen a bird," and not the other way around? I would assume this is the case, but wanted to ask.

to make sense this is the only possible order. But then, it is the same in English for once.
