Today was the first time I've noticed some of Hit Girl's new feathers showing. I had seen blood quills last week in her tail, but now they are irrupting out of the sheath. Upon taking her picture and looking at it, I see there are a whole lot more than just the first red tail feathers. The bright red arrow points those out.
My "little" girl is getting her grown up feathers.
