    This is Dusty, my special needs chicken. Has bouts of wry neck when stressed. I think it is a Roo because of the comb and wattles. I know the pictures are not ideal but I wanted to get some opinions. Dusty is about 4 months old. No crowing but I have 3 other roosters of different breeds that were supposed to be hens and only one of them crows so I think maybe only the dominant roo crows??? Let me know what you think.

    Your partridge looks to be a pullet for sure but I'm not so certain about the buff. Could you get closer comb pictures? Also how old are they?
