Is he the only chicken you have?

Based on the information you have provided so far, my best recommendation is to contact your local vet for a hands-on consult. Please isolate the little one for now - my worse fear is Mycoplasmosis. Probably a short course of antibiotics would nurse Batman back to health, but it's very hard to confirm this before a clinical check-up.
