Chick not growing

In the Brooder
Jul 8, 2017
I have a silkie that went broody so I gave her four of my buff eggs to hatch, all four were developing fine but when the first was hatching she abandoned the other three the one that hatched took over a full day to completely come out.
It had conjunctivitis which i cleared up and splay leg which I worked on and she started walking better.
At almost six weeks old she is the size of a 3-4 day old. She is eating well and getting vitamins, probiotics and electrolytes but she won't grow. I have her outside in a pen with the silkie and she got sprinkled on a little but she was laying on her side not trying to use her legs.
Any idea what else I can do for her?
