Baby struggling

Thoughts needed. Three day old baby chick got away from its mom and got pecked. Cleaned it up and put back with mom. Next morning it wasn't walking and peeped constantly. I have it in the house in a brooder- it's been 24 hours. Not eating or drinking on own and just lies in the brooder. I have been giving it water with electrolytes and vitamins in it through a dropper. Also mixed some feed in the water and have that- it's just getting worse. Any ideas?
There may be internal injuries that you are not be able to see or treat. I might try an egg yolk thinned with a little water in a syringe, just to get a bit more sustenance going.
I honestly don't know what to say, because there are at least 100 chicken deseases, including chick deseases. I think that just feeding electrolytes, giving medicated feed, and some TLC is the best you can do right now. I'm not completely sure though, maybe someone else can help a little more. Good luck ):
