    The Gold Laced Wyandotte chicks will look as yours did - a rose comb (flat, broad) with a brown marbled down color.

    The Cornish X / Wyandottes will be pale in color, almost white, with some markings here and there when they're chicks. As they grow up they should be mostly white. They'll also be fast growers.

    The Buff Orp / Wyandotte crosses will have pink legs, not yellow, and will grow up to mostly be reddish orange in color with some black flecking here and there.

    The Sex Link / Wyandotte crosses will look much like the Cornish X crosses, but with more color, and single combs. They'll grow at a normal rate, too.
