So I went outside a few minutes ago to check the chickens. I have an auto solar door and they have never missed their bed time before. But I found one in the run sleeping on the feeder (I have a flat top treadle), I put her in and she was just wandering on the floor of the coop so eventually I put her up on the roost. I’m wondering if she just missed it, or was let in and couldn’t find a good space so wandered back out to the run? I haven’t noticed her getting bullied or anything. I’ll keep an eye on this each night and maybe add a second roost. Any thoughts?

That sounds like an excellent idea!
Observation is key to finding out what the problem is, so you can find a solution.

I'll ask....
How old are these birds and how many of them?
How big is your coop, in feet by feet?
Dimensions and pics would help immensely here.
