    Nowhere can I find a pic of a yellow chick with black "chipmunk" striping, which is now turning to black & white barring on the wings. Meyer Hatchery chick, 2 weeks old. TIA

    Not the best photo for breed ID - can you try to get a photo that is a bit more clear?
    Are the legs greenish and the cheeks puffy (they almost appear that way in the photo, but could be blur/distortion/angle). What you see developing isn't really barring - it is a stage many final feather patterns go through as the bird feathers out.
    I suspect that this chick is likely an Easter Egger based off what can be seen -- but a clearer photo would help nail that down
