    Hopefully that works. I've tried save a chick, the abx from the feed store. It didn't start at birth, only a few weeks ago. She gets around ok and eats and drinks fine. But now the old lady hens started pecking her so we have to keep her away. Anything else I can do? We can't keep her like this since she is so vulnerable and our other older chickens don't like her.

    Vitamins and minerals would be my best suggestion, and I would crate her with her own food and water, and keep her with the others. Maybe at some point she could be accepted into the flock.

    I agree with Eggcessive
    The bird is stressed... and needs some peace and quiet... by the looks of the video and constant chirping.
    Poly vi sol without iron .... you can buy it at the grocery store...
    she might be in pain....
    birds tend to get worse off when they are stressed...
    try to find one bird that's easy going that you can put with her for company...?
