I'm sorry you have to get rid of them
I think it could work if it's not cold.. Do you mean like an outside aviary?
32ish is that in F or C ? if it's in F then i think it's too cold for them.. I'm not sure though, hopefully someone with an outside aviary will be able to help you out
I think someone who does have their birds outside should be able to help you out with this. I think it should be possible though, with the right equipment.

Budgie and Star left us in 2009. Pepper and Oscar left us this year, 2010.
A good day is a day all your birds are happy and healthy.
My budgies are in an outside aviary and they cope quite well. My temperatures are similar to yours. At the moment we are in winter and the temperature is getting below 0 C (which from memory is 32F) last year we had down to -5 C and in summer it often gets to 40 C plus, which is around the old 100F. Some years it has gotten to over 50 C. The heat is more of a worry than the cold with them. My birds don't have heat lamps in the winter.
You need to get them to acclimatise to the temperature changes. Being winter here I would not put any of my inside birds outside until the temperature warms up around the middle of September when it is spring and the latest I would put them outside is around March which is the beginning of our Autumn (Fall). This gives them time for them to gradually get used to the temperature dropping. In the summer you need to provide them with an area that is shaded and that can be kept cool. In the winter somewhere that they can take advantage of early sunlight so they can warm up.
In the wild in Australia the temperatures where they live would drop below zero in the winter and in the high 40's in the summer so they can acclimatise to the changes.
