Weak chick-please help!

Maybe put vitamin supplements / electrolytes in their water and hope that perks her up a little. If she is eating and drinking (even if its only a little) then she may pull through.
If she is not eating or drinking then its another story. It may sound harsh, but if this is the case, i personally would cull the chick as its better it has a quick and painless death rather than dying of dehydration. Additionally, but not necessarily, the chick could be likely to be a weak flock member even if it does survive, and would be likely to be attacked mercilessly by other flock members.
Please note, this is simply what i would do. This is by no means the only option available to you and i hope that other members may offer alternative suggestions.
I wish you luck
