More than likely it will be perfectly fine. Do you have chick grit? Provide a small tray of chick grit... grit helps break up anything in the crop and send it down into the stomach for digestion.
How long has it been since it last ate or drank? Are you sure it’s not?

How big was the balloon piece? When I butchered my meat chickens a couple of them had pieces of plastic, one the size of a quarter, in the gizzard. I'd venture to guess that your chicken would be fine, but I would still monitor the chicken, especially if it isn't eating or drinking.

Tbh i was away from home but im sure its a balloon. My nephew likes balloons so im guessing one of the loons popped and one of the pieces gets eaten by the chick. Ive also tried giving it vinegar water

Do not make the chick vomit.... there is way too high of a chance of aspirating her. Not a good idea at all, and is only used in extreme situations to treat impacted crops - which you have no evidence of yet. Just keep an eye on her (him)?, check the crop every morning and make sure it’s empty. Observe if you can and look for eating and drinking. If she is acting fine, I wouldn’t worry. Chickens eat all kinds of crazy things all the time and are normally fine. Grit, btw is just small pieces of crushed rock.

And the poops look normal? Do you know where the chickens crop is? Front right (chicken's right) of its chest? Have you felt it? Does it feel full? Hard? Squishy?

Poops were white. Yes i know in our language its called "Potta". Its neither full nor hard but when i squeeze it gently a balloon like sound is coming.
