Put her in chick timeout. Put her by herself in another brooder. In a few days put her back. It cured two of mine.

For mine, one day away wasn't enough. They were away four days. They've been perfect little ladies since.

I had a thread for a similar problem - https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=487727 - I seperated it for 1 day in the same brooder as its hatch mates but in its own little container. Someone also suggested it might have been due to a vitamin deficiency and that just eating the feed would help. Don't know what did it but it finally cut it out and is now a normal, but small, 5 week old chick!

Good luck!!
