How old are German Shorthaired Pointer puppies when their final coat color is determined? I hear that they obtain their various colors over time as pups, is this true?

The German Shorthaired Pointer puppies that are not solid colors are born with the head being predomitaely black or liver and the large spots being evident the rest of the body is White like a snow ball. After about 2 weeks the ticking shows up, some times light ticking and sometimes very dark ticking called roan when you can't determont the ticking as a defined spot or tick mark. You won't see the complete coat color untl they are 6 months of age but after about 6 weeks you have a pretty good idea of how dark and what they look like.
