Default Honey Wheat Beer

I brewed a Honey Wheat from AHS this a week ago. it started fermenting the morning after and is still going. it has slowed down a little but still 4 or 5 bubbles a minute. should i transfer to a secondary or are you suppose to let wheat beers sit in the primary the whole time until bottling? i've seen it on here done both ways just wondering what is the best.

Either is fine with a wheat. The purpose of the secondary is to clear your beer which is not usually the goal with a wheat - crystal and some american styles excepted.

It still sounds like it's fermenting away.

Check the gravity in a couple of days. If it's dropped 75% then it's ready to rack to a secondary.
