    How soon after hatching can you safely tag a monarch? or does it need to be flying first?

    Hello Amy – usually once the Monarchs wings have hardened off ( around 4 hours). Another way to tell when they are ready to fly is they usually start flexing their wings and getting excited.

    I usually tag them after a few hours they hatched. You can tag them when you feel their wings have dried enough.
