It could be an individual genetic flaw. Absent behavioral symptoms, I suggest just keeping an eye on this chick.

Watch for lethargic behavior, swelling around the eyes and facial tissue, discharge from eyes and nares, and loss of appetite. If those symptoms appear, you could assume a possible respiratory disease.

Would it be best to separate her from my others? It’s just seems strange none of the others show any signs.. hoping that means a genetic flaw. 🤞🏻

It's not necessary to segregate her. If it's something contagious, the others have already been exposed. We only take a chicken away from their mates to protect them from injury during an illness or injury. It's best to keep a chicken with their flock if at all possible. I see no reason to separate her.
