Newly hatched chicks often aren't able to hold their head up, or walk coordinated until an hour/ or a few hours after hatch.

If she proceeds to act that way, I would try offering her mashed scrambled eggs or drip a drop of a poultry vitamin along her beak in a day or two. This early, giving them anything can cause them to aspirate very easily.

I think it just looks like that because chickens want to move straight away but are weak as well from the hard work of getting out of the shell. give it a little time im sure it will be fine whe it gets its strength up.
