The whole thing is a few days process, up to a week or more sometimes, you notice the animals dull and darken up, they go to the milky coloration phase, and after a few days they will totally clear up, and it is almost as if they have shed, and most often right after they clear up like that its only a matter of days or less till they actually shed out, although some may even shed while still looking a bit milky.
