In the Brooder

Help, I am new to the forum and would like advice regarding my little 4 day old English Game bantam chick. Its flock mates are all bantams of various breeds and are doing well, but the bantam game hen cannot stand up, does not want to eat or drink and it is holding its feet strangely. It has been doing this since we got them but I hadn't noticed as they were all not moving around much as they were only a day old. Now that the others are moving around alot it is obvious something is wrong. I have separated it from the others so it doesn't keep getting knocked over and have been giving it drops of electolyte water from a syringe and hoping it will perk up. Is there anything I am missing or should be looking out for with regards to the position of the feet / legs? Any advice would be apreciated. Thanks.
