    Keep her hydrated . If you are religious, say a prayer cus they usually don't make it at that age. Good luck

    I have been giving her drops of water every few minutes she needs help as she is too week to drink the water herself, i have took her away from the other chicks under a seprate brooder as they are picking at her. I cant get her to eat or stand on her feet

    Sugar water might give her some energy.
