    You can try some chick vitamins daily in the water, and make sure that it is getting plenty to eat and drink. It may take some time and extra care, but it could heal. Wire flooring is not very good on chick's feet, so placing it on a solid floor might help. A crate for rest placed among the others so they can see each other for a week or so could be good.
