Tails should be docked 3-5 days after birth...or as some like to wait till they reach a certain weight. Eyes should open "around" the 14th day and ears come after that.
As always...JMO (Just My Opinion)

Sounds like you need to do some homework.
feminvstr posted a link to a great article under the Breeder threads entitled whelping management which has a lot of good info. Another good site is www.debbiejensen.com

don't forget dew claws when you have tails done.
best wishes with the new kids.

Yorkie puppy questions
Thanks so much for these answer....my yorkie gave birth this Sunday 2/21. She seems a bit tired but for the most a great Mommy to her son. Is there anything I should look for other than what to expect with a yorkie puppy? I want to make sure my baby is okay. She's very overprotective of her baby.

I know eyes open around 10th day and ears at about 14th day. You should dock the tails on the 3rd day, no later the 4th at least.
