    I have a 3 month old light brahma rooster and he is already bigger than the 3 year old EE's, prob weighs in around 3-5 lbs, will he get bigger, if he does will it just be fatter or will he get pretty tall to?

    Brahmas do tend to get big. If I'm not mistaken 12 to 13 pounds for a rooster. On the other side of the coin EE's are not notorius for being big, of course they do vary in size depending on the cross or crosses to get them.

    My late rooster Thor, a dark brahma, weighed 13 lbs. in his prime.

    Thor is beautiful! I need to get more Brahmas (I have one hen).
