    All three of your pheasant species are winter hardy as adults or at least full feathered. The temps shouldn't be a problem . Now, if they are very young, I'd keep them under the brooder lamp.

    No need for a heat lamp.Just keep the drafts off from them.Poly the sides and cover the top.How cold does it get there in Tx?
    In N.H.,Tony.
