    I have gamble, scaled, and valley and I keep them out side in the snow and I'm MI.
    I just built little three sided huts so that they can get out of the snow.

    Gambles are similar to Valley quail and I grew up in WA state and they are all over and it does get cold there with snow. I would just give them a place to go when it is raining, blowing or snowing and they should be fine.
