    8-9 week old Brahma mix I believe, I was just wondering if it's a Cockerel and also if its a bantam or if this is the normal size for its age.

    Looks like a roo, but it doesn't look like a bantam to me.

    I agree, standard size roo. He is the same size that mine was at that age. The only difference is the face, because mine is full brahma.

    Yep, male and standard size. Brahma are quite slow to develop.

    Any guess of what mix he is?
    Also will it affect size?

    He would be mixed with something with a single comb (looks like). My brahma has a pea comb. I would imagine that the only mix that would make him bigger or keep his size would be jersey giant or another giant breed. Other people on here will be much better at this game ;)

    I agree, rooster, not sure if bantam or what he is mixed with.
