    This is my new 7 month old rooster, can someone tell me what breed he is? I have no Idea :lol: And will he grow any bigger? I have a white Sussex hen and she is bigger than him. So I'm hoping he will grow the same size or bigger. Thanks!

    He looks like some sort of mix and judging by what you say of his size he is probably part bantam.

    Mixed breed. At 7 months old, he's about as big as he's ever going to be.

    Some chickens may gt bigger in their second year,be patient,he may grow bigger but as they said,he looks part bantam and if its true,he probably will be this size for the rest of his life.
