    Is that a bad rooster to have, and is he going to get any bigger or they just small roosters.

    He's full grown, he won't get any bigger.

    I did think he looked a bit large, but he's not a standard.

    The lesser sickles and saddle feathers are to wide to be a bantam, lenght of leg and toes give it away also. And the grass looks to be 3 or 4 inches tall..I'd say that bird probably weighs 4lb at least
