I agree with Jess, separate her maybe put one other chick with her to keep her company.  Also prepare your self and kids for the worst.  I know that sounds bad but generally from my experience the ones you baby and try so hard to save usually die in the end.  Good luck with her.

ps If you decide to take her to a vet, call around and see if you can find one that has experience with poultry...

UPDATE: Cupcake's still kickin'! Sweet little girl doesn't like to be handled a whole lot, except by Jeanine, but she's finally getting some feathers, yay! Here's a pic from tonight, she is about the size of a 2 week old, but she and the rest of her hatch-mates are 5 weeks old today!

Yay! I'm so glad that she is finally feathering out! That is what I would be worried about most at this point... her being able to regulate her body temp since we still pretty cool during summer nights.

So glad she's finally getting feathers.  Hopefully she'll catch up soon.

Yeah Meghan, it's getting old having the brooder lamp. I know they big ones still need it a little at night but she REALLY needs it and that stinks. Hopefully by the time they're all 8-9 weeks old she'll have enough feathers for me to remove the brooder lamp, because I think the rest will definitely be OK at that point.

There’s a big difference between Knowledge & Wisdom. Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in fruit salad.
