Currently i have 4 americana and 6 austrolorps at night its getting down into the twentys but inside the coop i have constructed it can get in the high 50's even low 60s during those cold times would it be okay to start to bring them outside

If you have them acclimated to those temperatures they will be okay, though I would provide extra heat at night until it gets a bit warmer. I will often put the young ones out in the coop to goof off and get used to it during the day, than return them to the brooder at night for a few weeks, than when I leave them out they aren't frightened.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
