I would think you could put them outside now, mine are 3 and half weeks and they are outside, they only need their heat lamp at night. (its gets in 70s and 80s during the day here now)

My chicks are 5/6 ish weeks old and we let them out for the first time yesterday.they did great. I would say you could do it now, but I'm a first timer, so not sure what the "experts" say

I put mine out at 5 weeks (unheated coop) - we had several days of 70/50 and then two days where it snowed and was below freezing - they had no issues with any of those temperatures and are happy and healthy.
