    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.

    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...
