Brilliant, well done! Probably, in a month's time, once the new feathers have come through, they wont be so tempting to nibble as when they're in the fluffy stage just emerging from pin.

I would say, for as long as it takes for them to get proper feathers on their bare bums - 4-5 weeks, from when the last ones went on, maybe? they may fall off after that time anyway.
