    You don't give much info about where you are or how cold it is, but if the hen has a shelter outside, put her back out there. I think the stress she's enduring being in unfamiliar surroundings is probably worse than the cold. Ours stay out all year round, in a barn, but it's cold...the barn is not heated, but it does provide shelter. They have been fine in the 3 & years we've had them. And it can get cold here. If you want to give her a heat source, get her a heat light or milk house heater to use during the day.
