when will platy drop fry?

I have a pregnant platy, she was quite visibly pregnant 3 weeks ago - She is a bit bigger now but she still has not dropped any fry. I have her seperated in a 10 gallon by herself. I attached a pic from 3 weeks ago - how much longer do you think till she drops?

It looks like she's gonna drop soon. But I could be wrong.

She's been hiding the last couple days. She didn't eat this morning either.

Those are two very good signs(not eating,and hiding) your fish will drop either later today or tomorrow

One of my platys is about the same size as yours, she's still quite active though, keep us updated on when she drops!

They were stressed from the breeding tank. U should only keep them in the breeder for 2-3 days at a time.

Once the start dropping they can drop regularly. About 28 days on average.

Yeah i no they are always fat even once they drop .. I read they only need to breed once and will give birth 3 times before needing to be fertalized again ..

Still no fry. Is this normal? It's been a little over 7 weeks since I noticed she was pregnant
