almost 8 weeks old. First 2 pics are the same bird. Last 3 pics pics are the other bird. Thoughts? I'm concerned because both are getting quite red in the waddles and comb areas.

I wouldn't be concerned yet. Wattles (not waddles) don't look horribly big right now. I *think* wyandottes tend to mature early. My first birds were SLW so I do know the struggles.

I agree...the comb is not big yet...although a bit redder. The top bird concerns me more for roo than the second.

Also watch for the patterning on the birds...females will develop a nice lacing while the males will have very blotchy coloring.

If you look at the adult males vs. females you will see where the coloring is headed.

I think they both look like pullets, I think their combs would be a more reddish color if they were cockerels. But keep an eye out!
