    Most of the colored chicks I see around easter are solid colors and they turn white as soon as their feathers come in.
    Yesterday when I went to buy a few chicks, my DF spotted the bin of colored chicks for easter and had to have one, A few there were not solid, but had strange patterns on them, so he bought one of those.
    Not until later, when we got home did we notice that the red colored chick's patterns looked a little bit like my light Ameraucuna.

    Could it be that this isn't a standard white chicken...but a dyed Ameraucana? I guess I'll have to wait and see.

    It's definitly one of the "chipmunky" breeds, but I'm no good at identifying them so I can't help with that.

    My DS and DD were given a dyed chick each--one is a white bantam of some sort (dyed blue) and the other is an EE. It has chipmunk striping and huge cheek fluffs! So cute. It was dyed pink. [​IMG]

    Could yours be a brown leghorn? I don't see any cheek fluff, but it could be the pic angle. What ever it is, it's cute!

    Edited for spelling.

    I have 2 dyed chicks, 1 pink and 1 yellow. No markings whatsoever. Are these baby chicks White Leghorns or some other breed?

    It's not an EE, definately a wyandotte. The pattern around the eyes is different [​IMG]

    We got a dyed EE last year. It was bright orange and turned out to be a beautiful red and white roo. At least at our feed store, the colored ones are always male.
