Sick hen...question about keeping her inside.

How old is she?
Did you give her heat outside?
You say hen so I assume fully grown, she should be fine without heat.

She is 1 year old. Yes she does have a light on in the coop but won't go in. She wants to stay with the others. I gave her Tylan 50 orally this morning. Put VetRx on her beak. I brought her in because it started raining. They are in a covered run. I just want to make sure she doesn't get chilled outside....so I brought her inside.
 
She may not be going in it because it's too hot.
She should not need heat at this age.
 
Chickens with respiratory diseases or other illnesses might need some extra heat. Is it hot outside where the other chickens are? If it is in the 70-80s it is probably warm enough.
