Duration of birth for platy?

I woke up this morning to find a few fry in my Platy birthing tank...great, was expecting it...however, I was under the impression that they can have anything up to 30 - 60 fry per batch...is this correct? I have only seen about 10...my question is as follows...

How do I know when she has finished dropping fry? When is it safe to return her to the main tank?
