i would make sure she knows where the water and food are. Dip her beak in the water and introduce her to feed. If shw still isnt eating try to hand feed her as she might now recognize her feed. Im relatively new to owning chickens but thats my thought.

Ya no I've tried all that she seems dehydrated and have been giving her water from a syringe but no improvement.

Melinda, are they warm enough? 95 degrees? Try adding some electrolytes to their water as well. Add some egg yolks to the feed. It is hard when you lose chicks. :-(
