Hey I have a baby silkie that hatched a day or two ago who is having a very hard time getting mobile, hasn't eaten much and seems like it has wry neck.

Tried feeding it an egg yolk with vitamin E and have it in chick vitamins in water for a boost. Have seperated it from the flock as it's mother abandoned it and in a contained spot with heat lamp.

Anything else I can be doing?

Yes, the best thing to do in addition to what you're already doing is to not get attached. Chicks hatched with wry neck don't have good chances. I had one this past spring and he didn't make it, despite tremendous effort on my part :(
