Midget BB Red Rooster? o.O

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have a BB Red Rooster, he's about 3 months, and he has barely grown since we've gotten him. Is there any reasons to why this is?

(The smallest one)

He is a Old English Game Bantam and he should only weigh around 24 oz. ( 1.5 lbs ).

Yes they do, your boy is just a bit young and hasnt been show dubbed ( had his comb trimmed) and he looks like he is hatchery quality, but other than that, he is still a BBRed Old english Game bantam rooster and he wont get much bigger than he is now.

Hatching eggs are no longer avaiable from any breeds until further notice due to predator problems and birds being too old .
