Just got these silkie/ameracauna cross chicks. They all have a distinct feather pattern. One has black on buff/tan, one has white on brown, and the other has orange on black. (Sorry about the black one being dusty, she tried to dust bathe in her food.) What is the feather pattern called? I can't find it anywhere.

I've seen chicks with feathers kind of like that, and they grew up to have various different patterns when they matured--I think it's fairly common for baby chicks to have different patterns than adults.

Next time they molt, they'll probably look different again :)
