My rooster is a 5 and a half month old Dominique and has started getting red bumps on his legs and one on each shank, higher than the spurs. What is it?

The red on his legs is likely hormonal and normal. They will often get red, sometimes quite red, when hormones surge. And he's at that age. He may have some callus on his hocks, maybe from resting them on a roost, or from laying somewhere else other than a roost. If he's moving around normally and acting normal I wouldn't worry too much. Check where and how he's roosting to see if that's contributing.

Okay thank you
