We discuss the pole mass and the width of the Delta(1232) resonance to third order in chiral effective field theory. In our calculationwe choose the complex-mass renormalization scheme (CMS) and show that the CMS provides a consistent power-counting scheme. In terms of the pion-mass dependence, we compare the convergence behavior of the CMS with the small-scale expansion.
