Staying on the ground at night

Every evening, our chickens go to their roosts for the night. Some jump up into a small tree then jump up to the large tree. Others find their way to the coops (3 available). However, I have 3 Silkies that always run into a corner of a small coop/run that I had them in when they first arrived to our farm.

I closed off that area so they would then choose to go roost. Instead they stay on the ground by the coop. I didn't like that so I opened up the small coop.

I have taken them and put then on different roosts so they would see that its a better spot than on the ground..... no luck..... any suggestions?

I too would keep putting them on the correct roosts.
Maybe some more roosts need to be added for them so that they aren't being pecked at.
