    How old is he? I'd say about a year is when they completely stop. Got pictures of him? What breed? Some breeds grow slower than others.

    So glad you've joined us! What breed is your rooster? The age at which they stop growing can vary depending on the breed.

    Growth rate varies with breeds and individual birds. However, I would say that my roosters usually reach full size at 8-12 months of age.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Some birds are fully grown at one year and some can even continue to grow after that. Each bird and breed is different.

    Enjoy your rooster and welcome to our flock!
