    No! They cannot and shouldnt be subjected to outside temperatures,
    even when acclimated. If you area of texas doesnt fall lower than 55
    degrees then you may be ok. But the avairy or outside cage should be
    on a porch, not th esolid growned ( or even 3ft off of the solid
    ground) as mice/rats and cats and racoons will be able to get in the
    cage. Too many factors you must consider.. I would look for a
    specific site that shows how to make the flight you want and hire or
    get people who know how to build it correctly. But if it gets too
    cold fo ryou to be outside then its time to move the budgies
