If she is barely moving and not hoping around and laying on her side more often than not this is known as lethargy and is not a good sign in chinchillas. She needs to be seen by a vet asap to determine what is causing her to be this way

How hot is the room she is in? Like mentioned before, if she is showing signs of overheating, which lethargy is a symptom of, she needs to be cooled down and see a vet asap. Even if she is not too hot, she should see a vet. Lethargy is a sign of something serious.
