    The chipmunk pattern is a fairly common one across several breeds. What color are the legs? Are you familiar enough with comb types to determine the type of bud this chick has?

    Is this a chick purchased from a feed store, etc - or hatched from your flock/sourced hatching eggs?

    Yellow legs. Got her from a store (Coastal Farm and Ranch) of course a straight run and assorted bunch lol. No, not familiar with combs. She was definitely an impulse buy lol

    If the legs are feathered it is most likely a Cochin.
