Stop roosting on the rafter

Hey all,
I've got a tractor that is kind of a portable box. The birds are using one the the rafters as a roost. It only gives them a few inches of head room on one end and no room on the other due to the sloping roof. The birds are only 12 or so weeks old and they try to cramp themselves up there. I've seen as many as four cramped into about 14 inches or less of space. Anyways, it isn't easy for them to get up to and I've seem them fall to the floor with a big ole thump when they fail.

What are some ideas to stop them from roosting up there?

i would put another roost at a more suitable level and possibly box the rafter in to stop the using it.
