Monarch Cats hanging in J position - how long to a chrysalis?

I'm new to fostering Monarch Cats and I've gotten myself into a pickle. There are four cats who appear to be ready to pupate. Out of four, two are hanging in a J formation this morning. This behavior occurred overnight. The other two are just being very still up near the lid.

Might someone have an opinion as to the length of time before the chrysalis is formed and I can safely move the lid?

I have two slightly younger cats still feeding and I need to add food but I'm nervous about lifting the lid, even with being extremely careful during the process, and distrubing the cats hanging from the lid. Note to self: don't get yourself in this situation again!
