Where do you live and what is the night time temps there. 3 week old chicks still need heat so if it still gets chilly where you live there is a good chance they're getting too cold.

you need to separate the chicks from the big chickens or they will die if its cold put a heat lamp on them.

I agree with the heat assessment, but also, check their poop. If there is blood, you might also be battling coccidiosis. Sometimes when chicks go outside, they are exposed to new bacteria which can cause problems.
