    what i would do is get some chick starter, make a gruel out of it, drop drops on her beak, she will suck it in automatcally, then get some polyvisol baby vitamins without iron (liquid vitamins) drop a couple drops on the beak- need to make sure she is hydrated- hopefully you will get more answers soon
