Default Recommendations for heat source

Hey guys! Has been quite some time since I’ve posted on this forum.

Back in March I purchased an outdoor aviary and have moved my flock outside. They are thriving outside and absolutely love it! However, the colder months will be upon us soon so I’m looking for ideas on how to provide a heat source for them. I live in Houston, so cold for Houston is like 70 degrees lol. But it did get down to 40 a couple nights in March. The birds did fine. I covered them at night to keep any wind off of them, but the cold didn’t seem to bother them during the day. We may see it drop into the 30s a couple times in the winter. It’s not often, but I’d like to be prepared for when it does.

The aviary stands about 7 feet tall, about 4 feet wide. So it’s not very big. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what would be a good heat source for an aviary of this size? Here’s a picture so y’all can get an idea. Thanks!

I'm sorry I can't be of any assistance when it comes to advising a heat source for your aviary.
It appears the aviary is on your porch? Would you be able to place heaters near the cage to help offset some of the cold?
Is it possible to cover the open sides with the "space" blankets at night to help keep out the cold?
