We just got this rooster today and he has black spots on his comb. Is this ok? There were 12 Roos together and he is pretty picked on. Could it be from being pecked it is something serious?

Those do look like peck wounds
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

I agree. You can either let  the scabs fall off naturally or remove them gently with warm water and then put a little iodine or other antiseptic on them. Either way, its nothing to worry about.
