    It looks like she may have landed on it. Red light might be more calming. restrict handling? Eyedropper some water in or on her beak maybe, and some boiled egg yolk next to her on a paper towel. you should be warmer than that??

    I think it's leg is hurt.
    For the future...don't put chicks on slippery surfaces like your counter top.

    The water...can you put a dish of water in there instead of a nipple one?

    Get a towel...put the chick on a towel and get a video from ground level of how she stands.

    hydro hen or something like that might be in order, but if it is an injury rest is always the prescription. She will exercise it as necessary on her own.
