tail feathers

In what age they start to pop out?
I can see long hair on JoyLee's tail but it did not look like feathers yet. Is it too soon?
She is 4 months old.

We started to see a feathered version about nine months...She had some but now it's more like a big fan...but ours is shorter hair than some others so I imagine it varies

Libbie's started at about 4-5 months old. She's got beautiful feathers now and she's 9 months old. I've heard though that it can take up to a year or a little longer. Guess they re all different

really depends on the bloodlines some get them really early 4-6 months some do not start or really fill out till they are older. Sparkles got hers about five months Tink started to get them around four. Boots looked like they were just coming in when I got him at a year.


Sparkles now at the bridge, Boots at the bridge and Tink my very special heart dog.
Bridge dogs, Tuffy, Blueboy, Pudge, Shasta, Maddie, Broker, Jet, Baily, Reva, Sparkle and Boots sweet boy we are missing you so.

Bentley is 5 months and just starting to get some. You can kind of see his tail in the 3rd picture here http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...ics-heavy.html (Bentley/Ky pics (heavy))

We were going to ask Santa for hair extensions for his tail but looks like we don't have to now
