Did you take her to the food and dip her beak in it? That is usually all it takes to get them to eat. Also check her crop to see if there is food in there. Do the same with the water. 5 days old and still alive? I would say it is probably eating:)

Oh and sometimes spreading the food on the bottom (if it's not a grate) will help as they love to just peck at stuff on the ground.
