    Cleopatra is my unknown. i am not sure if she is a mix. her mates are red sex links, rhodes and barreds.

    A Welsummer, maybe?

    Speckled Sussex look like that too, and so do Brown Leghorns.

    Hello,
    We have 3 Americana chicks and they all look very similar to the chick in your pic. Good Luck!

    We are actually calling one of our americanas "chip" because the marking down her back resembles a chipmunk. Your description sounds just like ours.

    So many breeds hatch chipmunk chicks, so it's hard to really tell until they feather in. I can tell you it's not a welsummer chick, the markings are too light.
