    My current chicks all did that until just the other night. They do need friends and warmth, too.

    I asked the lady at the store I bought her from and she said to just show her her food and water. But, issue is the chick doesnt want to drink on her own.

    Have you dipped her beak into the water? Often they need to be shown what it is and where it is.

    Yes issue is that she is now acting like she cant use her right leg, but I have seen her use it before.

    Can you take a short video of her and upload it YouTube?
