Question yellow spot on the back of Taj's head?

Taj has a very prominent yellow spot on the back of his head, I was just wondering if this is normal? I didn't know so I thought I'd ask the experts =]

here's a pic.. sorry about the low quality, I had to take it with my cell phone

That spot indicates that he is split for recessive pied. It is a recessive mutation that he is carrying

I'll be curious to see what kind of replies you get. One of my boys that came 'from the wild' has a spot just like that. I had named him "Patch" before I even trapped him.

That's a very special spot... split for recessive pied.
