    Is there a way to differentiate between the different breeds that have the chipmunk look?

    some times though it depends mainly on the color of the stripes.

    You can look at their leg color and comb type.

    Are they bantam or standard size? What kind of combs do they have? Which breeds were listed as possibly being in the assortment? LOTS of breeds look like that as little nuggets...

    They are standard size from Cackle. I can't really tell the combs yet. Cackle has lots of possibilities on breeds thats what makes it so hard to figure out
