No earlier than 6 weeks and 7 or 8 is better especially for a first time HOF.

It is also best if it is under 10 weeks for the bonding process. ALso, it is important that the flyers are weaned. Some will adopt them before weaning, but it is best if they are weaned.

Actually, those over 10 weeks will bond well. They may take a little more work, but many folks have had great success with even older ones. It just depends on how much work you're willing to put into it.

I know that, I just meant that it is easier if they are younger. Mine is gonna be over 10 and I'm sure that he will bond fine.
