Sunflower Heads

I'm growing a few large giant sunflowers and all have 1 head forming apart from one that has 10 on one plant?!?! Is that normal behaviour?

    I only grow the dwarf ones Torg, it's too windy for the giants in my garden image.  I think some varieties are multi-headed though.  Maybe a rouge seed in the packet?

    There are many sunflower varieties that are multi-headed.

    I've got three sunflowers growing in  my garden that have fallen from the bird feeder. 

    Two have one head; the other has six heads. 

    No idea what the seed mix is as of course they were meant for eating but it's quite exciting to watch them form!
