    It's a little game bird, isn't it? That is the markings (the one that looks like a chipmunk) that one of mine had, and it was the most beautiful game!

    It looks like a Welsummer chick.

    Are you referring to the "chipmonk" striped chick???

    Very common in RIR, Buckeyes and some American Games!!!

    Here is a pic of some chicks I hatched this week....they are Buckeyes and American Games;

    [​IMG]
    Most of the Buckeyes are "rusty" colored but one just under the white square lable on the back of the brooder has a "chipmonk" stripe....the others that are marked like this are American Games!!!

    Welsummer's or other Black Breasted Red colored breeds will throw these "chipmonk" stripes, too!!!

    I am leaning toward Welsummer and Buckeye. I raise American Game and have not yet seen a chick like this. I have had several like this one in the pic, but your chick's marking are alot lighter. :)

    Based on what you said about the comb, I think it's a Buckeye. I have raised RIRs as well and never had a chick colored like this, but there are many varieties of RIR so I could be wrong.
