Can you tell if Olive Egger chicks are male or female? If not then is this chick just a slightly different breed?

The Olive Egger chick with the stripe on it's back is different from the other Olive Egger chicks I have. I don't know if you can but can you tell by the feather of that breed of chickens. I know most breeds you can't. I was just wondering. I know they are all the same breeds because I hatched them out of the same batch of eggs.

Most likely not. Unless you know the specific breeds that went into the cross, then we could figure if some type of sex linkage was present.

The 'wild' pattern aka 'chipmunk' pattern can come from a lot of different breeds and is quite common in mixed breeds like EE and OE, so there is really no way to tell what is mixed in...
