    A picture might help, but if they are all the same age, I would SUSPECT that the bigger combs would be roos.

    Single combs do occasionally happen in wyandottes. They say that single-combed birds are slightly better for fertility, so some people keep one or two in their wyandotte flocks for that purpose. They are not showable, but will be good for your flock.
