    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?

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

    Quote: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.
