    This lady is selling this rooster. However she is giving him to me for free as she needs to get rid of 2 and he is the younger one. She says he's about 7lbs. May he be a cross? I thought Sumatras were lighter chickens.

    The roosters should weigh between 5 to 6lbs. It looks like A Sumatra.

    Okay, she said it was 7 lbs so I wasn't sure since the breed is lighter usually:confused: Maybe he is a heavy individual?
