    My Welsummer too is over a year now and he started gettin a white patch of fuzz at the base of his tail feathers. What is going on? Thanks for help

    I've seen some game roosters with that "accent" -I think it's a nice touch on those roosters. Flashy. Not sure if you want your Wellie to display it, though, if you are breeding him for type.

    :confused:
