How old is this bird? 

It doesn't look quite like a Brahma to me. He appears to be lacking feathered shanks and feet. Perhaps a Brahma mix, maybe with barred rock. In which case, yes he would get pretty big. 

Lots o chickens!

It's definitely not a full Brahma with that single comb and bare legs as Brahmas have pea combs and feathered legs. It looks like a mixed breed cockerel to me.

Me, too. I'm also not sure the color is really barred. The barring is usually very evident in the hackles, and those look more laced or, well, splotched.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Brahmas have feathered feet.  It may have Brahma genes in it but it clearly is a cross.  The feathering is all mottled.  I would have to see other chickens of the same age to decrease margin of error, but based on those photos alone, it looks like you have a hen.  If this bird is a couple of months or a few months old, then I would say cockerel.
