No, he is not bantam size, but he is not huge. i called my friend and she said he is a mix breed and may be bantam mix. but he is not small. i would say he is medium size. i have a large buff O hen who is large, and i have an australorp rooster, and this rooster is a little smaller than the 2 i just mentioned..

I think your friend answered your question. He's a mixed breed, mixed enough no particular breed stands out.
