what is the time frame to band a IRN?

my indian ringneck parakeets laid 5 eggs the first one hatched today? I am wondering what the time frame is to close band the babies in time? they will be pulled for hand feeding but that time depends on when I can band them?

I have not closed banded before but have raised many birds.

    I hope you already have your bands as most birds are banded around the 10th day. After that the bands are too small to fit over the foot.
