At what age does a Pup's tail bloom?

I am wondering at what age a puppy's tail blossoms to gorgeous feathers?

Ryley was 2 so his was fully bloomed and magnificent.

Im curious for this question as well Chester is almost 5 months and his tail is still almost rat like. When it's up you see the tip blooming up more. I'm anxious for it too look like a goldens tail.

For Molly the feathering started noticeably coming down around 4 months.

This was taken at 15 weeks and 4 days. I think the rest of the feathering was just wet from the lake, I don't remember her having such a strange tail!

So far by all the responses I'm guessing in just a few more weeks Chester will have a blown out tail I'm excited =]

Yup, Liberty's was feathering by about 5 months, but I've heard it can take up to a year or so.

My pup is 5 months old and his started a month or so ago.. I notice it more as the weeks go by. When his tail is up, you definitely notice it more. I can't work for his coat to fully come in, I've been getting him used to being groomed in the meantime!
