    That's a common chipmunk pattern of Easter Eggers, but it's also a partridge patterned down. I see yellow legs, could be a Welsummer or a partridge Wyandotte...

    Could you tell us what its comb looks like? [​IMG]

    sawtooth edge?

    flat and smooth?

    tiny little rows of lumps?

    A lot of my game chicks had that chipmunk look. It's so cute.

    So fuzzy!!!!
    I don't think it's a welsummer- not red enough. Possibly a brown leghorn. There are alot of possibilities with that pattern. Is it a single comb?

    Yes I agree to many possibilities that's why I need the help....not sure how to figure out what the comb looks like, they are only a couple days old, but this is considered as mccmurays rare exotic so I was trying to pin point the breed

    Well then chances are it is a male, and likely an Easter Egger. . . (not a rare breed [​IMG] )


    If you look closely on the forehead between the eyes, parting the fluff carefully, you'll see a tiny comb, and you'll notice a certain shape to it. (rows of bumps, smooth, or sawtooth edged)
