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

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
