Big Girl Feathers

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.
The yellow arrows are pointing to fresh primary feathers, which I had not noticed before, though she has been loosing major feathers now for over a month.  The dark red arrows are pointing to body contours, which are showing some of the red which her whole body will have when she is done with the process.

My "little" girl is getting her grown up feathers.
