this is my 1st batch of chicks. can a chick recover from an injury like this? Will the other chicks attack the weak chick? Should I separate her from the rest? What to do?

I would seperate immediately, especially if you see them picking on her. To separate one of mine I put a piece of glass at one end of the brooder, positioned so both sides can get sufficient heat, and put a small dish of food and water for the individual chick. I used the tops of small Ziplock containers for water and food. It was a very sick chick and died in the night, but the separation worked great like that.
