I gave her fish oil, I broke the capsule open and squeezed it and she got some off of it. I put her back in the box and she laid back down.

I have a chick that does the same thing. Look at her. Are her eyes clear? Does she peep? Does she eat at all, or drink? If the answers are yes to all of these, she's probably fine. XD Hope this helps.

I love to smile! Smiling is my favorite! :D

Also, some chicks just have a different sleeping schedule. BlueMoon12 is correct, check her/his vitality.

Yes, the sugar water is to get them moving and eating/drinking.

Check her vent for pasty butt or clogs, make sure she's pooping.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

I know she will drink and eat if I'm making her. She chirps when I'm holding her I know and her eyes look fine. Here is is a insure of her poop, sorry I'm new to chickens and still trying to learn it all.

I know how you feel I had 6 chicks and one of them were doing the same thing as yours. She would eat and drink if I held her to the water and food. she did that for about a week since she is in a different environment from before just give it some time. I still have mine a year later however consider what the other people are suggesting it may help!
