Default Redfoot weight

Hi, was just wondering what weight adult male Redfoots can reach, Nelson is well over 4kg now, will he get much heavier?

I suppose it depends on his size... how big is he?

He can get a bit bigger, so presumably will put on some weight. I think I saw a post somewhere a while ago where someone had one that weighed 7kg but I think it was HUGE red foot.
