It won't be long now!

While the Monarch caterpillars formed their chrysalis within a few hours of each other they are at different stages of development at day 10.  It looks like they are on schedule to soon make the flight to the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico.  The black crumb climging to the left chrysalis is the remains of the caterpillar skin after the formation of the chrysalis.
