Are all chicks with these stripes genetic partridge?

I picked up a few mixed EE's that are brown/buff colored with stripes. How will they color out when mature?

The seller said they were Ameracuanas, but from what I have seen in the past, they tend to sell EEs and mis-name them. Is a brown and buff colored chick with chipmunk stripes even a thing in the purebreds in the off chance they really are Amer? I always keep pure lavenders, so im not familiar with other possibilities in the breed.

Chipmunk Strips are Wildtype based e allele e+



Partridge eb chick down is somewhat different(the head is mostly solid or lacks any defined pattern as the wildtype e+ do)

Chipmunk stripes are always wildtype or duckwing.

Sounds like a duckwing. The only duckwing Ameraucanas out there are silvers, and I am certain that it is an Easter Egger.

Thank you both.

I also have 2 Silkies that had the stripes and they appear to be a washed out black/grey/blue? color??

They came out of a flock of paints, splashes and blacks. Any idea what genetic color they might be? I have been assuming they are partridge, but i only see the golden partridges on here in Silkies. Blue partridge?
