    Its hard to tell from the pics but the baring looks weak and if he has two or more solid black main tail feathers that's a disqualification. the wheaten cock looks like he might be dubbed a little short.

    The Blue Wheatens are better than the Creles. The Blue Wheaten male is dubbed a bit too close & from the length of the tails of both birds I suspect they're older & as such wouldn't show well. They'd be useful breeders if they're still fertile.
    If the male Crele does in fact have 2 or more solid black tail feathers it is a D/Q. I really can't tell from the pictures. The Crele females are too long in the back & appear to have white earlobes. That too is a D/Q.
