    I don't think so--Ameraucanas/Easter Eggers don't usually have the facial markings that your chick has. CAn you tell what type of comb it has? If a rose comb, then maybe a Golden Laced or Blue Laced Red Wyandotte?

    Edited: After seeing a photo of a Barnevelder chick, I think that is what your chick is.

    My flock is a RIR roo and half of my breeder hens are EE and the others are game hens. I've hatched 80 bittys this year that were chipmonk or yellow like yours. Either hen breed will throw either color of bity.
    The yellow ones grow up to look Game or EE or RIR or a mixture thereof.
    The chipmonks grow up to look like Game or EE or RIR or a mixture thereof.
    But occasionally 1 of either color will have feathered feet & legs and I scratch my head and say hmmm...that one must belong to the milkman.
    Sorry, I know that didn't help a bit.

    I'm betting on EE. It's hard to see in the pictures if it has puffy cheeks or not, but the comb looks to be a pea comb. (again, hard to see it though) EE's are often sent as the "rare or mystery" chick.

    If it has a single comb and no fluffy cheeks, it could be a Barnevelder.

    If it has a pea comb and no fluffy cheeks, it could be a Dark Cornish.

    Definitely a single comb. I don't think it has puffy cheeks. I hope it's the barn evildoer as I don't have one of those!

    You can also completely rule out easter egger/ameraucana, because it has a yellow beak, and probably yellow legs. Easter Eggers usually still have the dark legs and beak, and Ameraucana definitely would.
