Sorry, since I don't breed CT's, I have no idea. Hopefully someone that does will be able to answer you.

I suppose how much their rays extend only gets obvious when they start flaring, which is around 6-7 weeks old. The sooner you separate them, the faster they learn to flare.

This video shows the first juvvie I jarred, at 7 weeks.

They should show the first signs of CT around 4 - 6 weeks (some sooner than others). By 8 - 12 weeks they should show their potential quality. By 4 - 5 months, they should be able to enter shows.
