    I don't have any experience with Palm squirrels but generally 16 weeks is about old enough to start a SOFT release process. Here is a thread about the soft release process:

    The soft release process gives the squirrel time to adapt to being outside which maximizes it's chances of surviving. A hard release is where the squirrel is just dumped outside all at once, this is harder on the squirrel and reduces it's chances of surviving.

    She is very cute but looks very small, perhaps that is normal for a Palm squirrel?
    See my wild squirrel adventures in the thread "Squirtle's yard!":
