Australorp - Losing Feathers, Weight, Not Eating/Drinking & Won't Leave Her Nesting Box

My girl is sick, I think.
I've tried to isolate her with access to apple cider spiked water and food but she's uninterested. I've let her out of isolation to range (and hopefully eat). She ran about for a bit then retreated back to her box where I don't think she's moved for the last 15 hours.
What in the world?!
Is she appearing to sleep? I had a hen be lethargic like that but she died that afternoon. My only advice is to keep bothering her to run around. Tempt her with delicious snacks, like cheese and mealworms. I hope she feels better.
I don't know how old she is exactly - she wasn't a chick when we got her. She's maybe a year.
