I have been trying to hand feed with no results. I am going to pick up some liquid B12 today and start adding sugar to the water I am giving it. It is weaker today, maybe the sugar will perk it up.
Good idea, sugar water sometimes does the trick.

Unfortunately, with your description of her behavior, pecking at other chicks, but doesn't seem to connect with food/water, she may have some type of developmental/genetic or neurological disorder. B12 is good, you can also give her some poultry Nutri-Drench to see if that helps.:hugs

I have thought about the possiblility that it has a neurological issue, the way it pecks the other chick and the walls is odd. I have B12 and on the suggestion of an experienced chicken friend am going to force feel it liquid yolk through a dropper. Hopefully the little one is still with us when I get back home.
