    They are definitely developing single combs rather than rose (single combs do occur in wyandottes, though it is outside the standard, recessive and generally culled from serious breeding programs)- and considering the leg color in that last photo they are not GLW. They may be BSL (black sex links) with a LOT of leakage, or they could be a different breed. Where were they purchased?

    I agree with Ol Grey Mare. They definitely aren't GLW's.
