    If they are bantams, I'd say that chipmunk there is a
    silver penciled.

    Compare to this chick,

    They can vary from light to dark.
    The dark one above I hatched from chicks I ordered last July.
    The pic below is one of the chicks from the parent stock.

    See the difference in the shades

    Thank you so much, I would love to see some of the parents.

    I orderd 4 partridge, 2 buffs, 2 reds and 9 assorted, in the assortment they sent me a splash, another buff, 2 blacks, and 5 of the light chipmunks aka, silver pencilled.
