Lock them in the coop for a few nights, either lock them up during the day where they go there on their own or move them at night.

In the meantime, modify your shop building where they cannot get in. Not always quick and easy, I know. It is quite possible that nothing scared them. They may just prefer your shop building.

I'm having to put up a wall in a shed, not because they sleep in there but because they hang out in there and the dust and poop is not good for the stuff in the shed.

Good luck!

Wow I you were luckey I lost about thirty chickens to a big cat or cats several years ago. We had some big fires and there were a lot of displaced predators out and about. I heard her screaming in the canyon with a dog bark at the end. Pretty chilling stuff.
