Severe black bearding outside?

Hey guys I have taken my 2 beardies outside the last 4 days in a row and they darken up basking under the sun which is normal. But my Chubbs gets a extremely jet black beard and I never thought of it till now but could being outside consecutively be stressing her out? Amber darkens up as well but not much and they both start to gape after being out 5-10 mins. I thought the typical body temp regulation but 5-10 mins seems fast to reach optimal temps (hoping I'm wrong). They are not used to being outside a lot so I'm doing it more and slowly one of their triggers already is when a airplane passes overhead. I'm looking to get a big kiddy pool so I can fill it with soil and let them roam but be in a controlled area with 24/7 supervision. Hopefully overtime they will learn to enjoy being outside but I want to keep them from being stressed out as much as possible. Obviously i know they will get stressed out at some point but that's never my intention

Note: They currently bask on my lap and/or a lounge chair so with a kiddy pool they can roam and dig

Every dragon is different but for some [ like yours ] everything is new + scary to them. They should get used to it after a while. If you want a screened enclosure you can try one of these, others on the forum have these for their beardies.

Would the suns rays be filtered from the screen? Or is it different than UVB bulbs bc it's natural sunlight. New to letting my beardies out I think I need to research this stuff lol

Some would be filtered but being in natural sun they would get loads of uv even with the screen
The one you recommend is out of stock but would this work? Comes with rain fly one comes in black which I thought could make it hotter even on a cooler day and green

I am new and looking for a teen beardie. I have been doing a lot of research for about 2 years.
I'm new here but not new to dragons or snakes. Over the 7 years. I opened my heart and home to neglected. unwanted dras and snakes, some critical conditions. Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
