    From weather? Predators? From what? Do they not have a chicken coop? If from weather, and only have wire chicken coop, and is getting wet, just put a tarp over it or something. If from prey, then presumably the chicken wire should keep them from getting eaten. If afraid they're getting too cold, I guess can put their coop in the garage or something as they do get cold and don't like getting wet. And let them go back outside when weather gets good since they need fresh air.

    Take their eggs inside and let the chickens take a nice bath.

    don't they have a covering or do they run free with no protection

    If the birds don't have a covered area to get in and out of the rain then I would try to put them into your garage perhaps. You don't want them to get their feathers soaked with the rain water, then they get chilled and sick.

    They should be shielded from the sun, rain, etc.  They should have a chicken home, roof, walls, etc.  A place where they won't get wet.  Until you get one, it would be the decent thing to do.

    They'll probably be fine inside of the chicken coop.

    No. They may be bird-brains but they are smart enough to seek shelter.
