    My Welsummer rooster has, starting from the front of his head, 5 definite points on his comb and then at the back there is a little mash of points stuck together. This sounds weird but most roosters have it (I think!) A wellie should have 5 so how many does mine have?

    He is a randy little bugger. He turned 10 weeks on Monday and is now starting to grab the hens by the neck. They squack like crazy. They have 10 more weeks until lay! What is he thinking?!?!???!
