Good luck with your chick I hope you can pull her round
It happens with hatching. It could be that the hen didn't get enough of a certain nutrient the day before she laid that egg. It could be that she has some sort of genetic abnormality. Or maybe it's neurological. Or maybe she just didn't develop quite right. And the list goes on. There are tons of possibilities that could have resulted in a weak chick. I do know from experience that weak chicks that don't get on their feet within 10 hours of hatching, usually don't make it. Vitamins and electrolytes in the water is all you can do for her. She will either perk up, or she won't.
