I have a picture of it, but it's deceased, so I didn't want to post that unless requested ...

It's very small, so looks like a bantam. but is colored very similar to a chipmunk.

Quite a lot of different breeds have that chipmunk-colored chick down, so unfortunately it is probably not going to be possible to identify it for sure (was this, like, a McMurray 'rare exotic free chick' type thing?)

Sorry,

Pat

Hmmm...very small could be Sebright or Old English Game Bantam.

Generally I think Easter Egger or Ameraucana for chipmunk, but small sized, I would say one of the above. Probably OEGB.

I hate to say it but there are many breeds that look like little chipmunks. EE's, and brown leghorns are 2 types that I have that looked like chipmunk-chicks. I know there are other breeds with similar apperiances as baby chicks. Sorry, I guess that's not much help.

Basically any bird that grows up to have a partridge-looking color, or duckwing, even gold laced, or black breasted red, all have the chipmunk look at a young age. So, that narrows down to ALOT of breeds.
