    Taco: He is the oldest male, we got him last summer and he is quite tame. Every once and a while he'll try to show me he is boss, if I approach his girls and they squat.. he'll peck at my leg. Otherwise he is a softie.. Maybe a Dorking??

    Then there is Mr Buff.. with his favorite girl. Is he a Buff Orpington? But his comb is different?

    He has been crowing the longest out of the batch hatched in November. He always seems to deferr to the other boys..


    Then Buster.. I think he might be a Splash Wynandotte? he is larger than the other bantams.

    He can be a bit bossy..


    And Ugly, who seems to have the worst attitude.. He and Buster try and square off a lot..

    The only one I can identify with any certainty is Ugly who looks to be a dark cornish.

    Taco looks like a Silver Duckwing OEGB (not sure about the earlobes though)

    Mr Buff is a Buff Laced Sebright

    Buster may be just what you said (I don't know too much about Wyandottes)

    Ugly - I agree with Potterwatch

    Buster does look like a splash wyandotte to me as well. The others I would say are a siver duckwing old english, a buff laced seabright and a cornish [​IMG]
