When will mom stop taking fry back into mouth?

My female Kenyi started spitting her fry yesterday. However, she keeps taking the fry back into her mouth. Is this normal? How long until she will spit them and leave them so I can move her back to the main tank and feed her?

its hard to say, some moms are very protective of fry and will do it for a few weeks. I have always stripped the babies from mom as soon as i can tell/guess/see they are free swimming or soon after. But my last mother would crazy chase all young whom escaped her.
