I posted this in another forum, if x posting is frowned on please forgive me.

I have a chick which hatched yesterday morning that isn't walking. Sort of flops around. The other two chicks that were born this morning are running around all over.

Can someone help me figure out what's wrong?

Can you post a video of how it walks? Slipped tendon maybe? I'd put it in the incubator in a toilet paper lined bowl or cup. Something it has to stand in to jump out. That should help it gain some strength, it worked on my quail. I would definitely separate it though, it might get trampled and die.
Btw, welcome to BYC!
