    I've always heard with chipmunk stripes... you get partridge.... partridge is actually the wildtype color pattern... and in most cases, is very dominate over almost all other color patterns.

    Except brown-red and black, yes.

    The chick won't have a recognized, nameable color, no, but will indeed resemble duckwing. I'm betting either A) the other part of the Orpington cross was a duckwing or partridge carrier or B) that chick got the Wheaten from the Orpington cross.

    The chick would become a buff columbian, maybe almost solid buff.
    Chickdown is a clue what the chicken carries.

    Quote:I believe that buff orps are based on eWh and Db. mated to a wild genoty partridge(eb the rest is +genes) the boys could come out looking more like a dark Black Tailed Buff(dark Orange) than buff columbian.

    black tailed buff is a subset of buff columbian.
