Turkey in the rain

My Bourbon Reds love to roost high on top of the plastic canopy frame, where they're exposed to the elements and not in their cozy A-frame coop or in the fruit trees even. During the daytime I've seen them shelter a little bit to get out of the rain if it's coming down hard, but not at night when they roost. Many times I've found them sneezing with ice formed on their backs after a rain and a freeze. My fiance would try to wrangle them into the A-frame every night and also put up a big branch for them to roost in between the fruit trees, but they just prefer being together up at the highest point in the pen instead.
