Sounds like the chick is positioned backwards maybe. In my experience backwards chicks can sometimes hatch on their own and sometimes need assistance.
Before assisting it would be a good idea to read this article.
This article also has tons of info but I find it hard to find things cause it is so long.
You could also pop onto this thread to ask for advise, lots of helpful people there http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1046313/incubating-w-friends-come-hatch-learn-chat-meet-new-friends
Hope this helps!
Is the brooder warm enough under the heat? Is the food small enough for her to eat? Could you post a picture of her?
Maybe you could try giving her electrolytes or some poultry vitamins in her water. Might give her some energy.
Yes it's warm enough and yes to everything else. I wrapped her in a towel and cuddled with her and she calmed down and finally went to sleep. Wonder if she's lonely? Or has a upset stomach. She was my last one that I had to help hatch but she is 4 days old today. She's littler than the rest of them.

Sorry, I don't know what it could be. Maybe she has some deficiency, or needs a bit of extra protein for a few days to catch up with the others. You could try feeding her a bit of scrambled or mashed hardboiled egg for a bit of extra nutrition.
She is very cute though.
Maybe you could ask over on this thread http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1046313/incubating-w-friends-come-hatch-learn-chat-meet-new-friends lots of knowledgeable people over there, someone might know what is going on with her.
