I really like the looks of your barred Wyandotte's Perry! Wish I could make the picture bigger though so see more details.

Here is the picture in a bigger size.  I culled down to two Pullets out of about 20 and 1 roo out of about 15.  I
The second generation should produce about 25% with single comb and 25 % that will be a 100% Wyandotte type but with barring. The thing I have to do is pick the most Wyandotte type roo and breed them back to a Black Wyandotte hen. If all the chicks have Wyadotte type combs then I am off to the races and need only to work on type.  If their are any single comb you need to discard that roo and try another. You want to make sure you have the double gene for the Wyandotte comb.  I will supply a black Pullets next year to who ever buys this trio so they can work on their generation 3.

Here's the pic
