    Can you post a photo?
    Treat the cut with a little vetericyn or plain neosporin.
    Add some vitamins/electrolytes to her water and give her chick starter, you can wet it if need to.
    You may want to separate her so she doesn't get trampled and keep her warm.
    Let us know how she does.

    Sorry for your loss. Were the chicks in with older chickens? The more info we have the better we can help to figure out what happened.
