The 2 rhodebar males that didn't survive shipment were pretty trampled, however I did see some brighter yellow fluff that is similar to your light colored chicks. I have 1 female that is much lighter than the others. Also some of my females chipmunk stripe is broken on the neck.

“rare” does not equate to “perfect,” and the birds you buy may not be flawless physical specimens. Just as only a few children are destined to grow into supermodels, only a few chickens are destined to win ribbons at shows. Chickens, like all living things, show much individual variation, and frequently those variations are imperfections.
I wonder if they ever cull chicks for imperfections? I think many breeders would instantly cull a chick that didn't match the others. Odd to sell a chick that obviously doesn't look the same as the others they pack in your box.
