Good Laying Breeds Review by Julie
I ordered the 3 Orpington’s and 15 Cackle Hatchery Choice, Heavy Breed. They shipped 21 chicks and four of them were not alive when they arrived. Three of them were extremely weak and passed within a couple hours of arriving. The remaining 14 are doing very well now. They were packed very well I know that the breeds are Barred Rocks, RIR and the other chicks I can’t figure out. They started looking like a Delaware but now they’re coloring is a very light peach color. With regards to customer service, they were extremely helpful . They always responded quickly and the customer service representative were very knowledgeable and friendly. I wish I wouldn’t have lost so many chicks but this time of the year it’s extremely cold. I will definitely use cackle hatchery again in the future and maybe wait to order the checks in April not February. (Posted on 2/26/2019)
Perfect in every way! Review by Tammy
I received more than I ordered and every single little chick was alive and healthy. They were ordered in the very cold months of March and I'm thrilled that they were healthy and strong... and beautiful!! (Posted on 2/25/2019)

Thank You Review by jo
My chicks were picked up from my local post office this morning. All 26 were well and started drinking and eating right away. The brooder box was warmed and ready for them.
Just want to thank you for your service. Have a GREAT day!!
BTW.... my guineas I bought from you are healthy juveniles now. Never lost a one since I started raising them. This is one happy “chicken lady”.

Very Happy Review by Suzette
Ordered the Heavy Assorted Pullets last summer, and was super pleased! We ordered 25 chicks, but received 28, and all of them lived! Breeds we ended up with were: Australorp, Dominiques, Barred Rock, and Silver Laced Wyandottes (Posted on 1/29/2018)
Nice chicks/great service Review by Chris
I ordered 30 of the hatchery choice heavy pullets that were delivered March 2,2016. I received 32 of which 2 did not make it passed a couple of days. The 30 are doing great. In 3 weeks they have tripled in size and have been moved from the brooder to the stall enclosure in the barn. They are nearly fledged and will be ready to move outside when the weather is consistently warm. They are beautiful birds. (Posted on 3/23/2016)
1st hatchery order - VERY SATISFIED Review by Chris
This was my first time ordering from a hatchery. I received 34 heavy pullets the first week of February, only one died and they are healthy and now fully feathered. It's still a guessing game as to what kind I got, but that is the fun of the hatchery picks. Thank you Cackle Hatchery! I'm placing another small order next week. (Posted on 3/10/2016)
Just a customer message Review by Renee Wisconsin February 2014
Never knew Cackle Hatchery had over 300+ YouTube videos on products and breeder flocks. Very very interesting and a great customer tool to see different breeder flocks, different chickens, different set-ups in the way breeders keep their chickens, and even your product demos were intriguing. Keep up the good customer relations. These homegrown contests, the newsletter, and the "Born to be Wild speed freak video of hatch/shipping day are incredible hilarious and funny. Your public relation ideas are wonderful. And someone sure put in a lot video-taping all those flocks. Very very fun and enjoyable. (Posted on 1/14/2016)
Chick Order Review by Alan Washington February 2009
Just picked up my chicks that were hatched on Monday. I think in my 45 years of ordering chicks from different hatcheries around the country these are the best I ever received. I ordered the pullet combo. I got the best variety including all those nice rare breeds! These guys were jumping out of the box to get out, not one dead! Two years ago I got a bad shipment from you, it was when a post office employee put bags over them and smothered all of them. You guys sent me another shipment and I raised them all. Everyone else has raised their prices a lot, you guys give the best value now. I am going to tell everyone I see about your company, especially the people at the feedstor I trade at please tell the people who may have put my order up a big THANK YOU! They did a super job! I may be ordering some waterfowl soon too. Thanks a lot for the excellent chicks. (Posted on 12/18/2015)

Received chicks Review by Hilda North Carolina
Wanted to tell you that I received my chicks this morning and they are well and look great. I am pleased with the package of 15 chicks heavy assorted pullets. I love the idea of the surprise of not knowing what kind you will receive and the fact you offer a minimum order of 15 chicks which works a lot better for me than the other company's 25. Thanks for keeping the small hobbyist in mind. I will definitely be ordering again from you. Best Wishes (Posted on 11/17/2015)
Cackle Customer Review by Judith Kansas July 2014
I received my order of 15 Pullets Assorted Heavy Pullets Hatchery Choice today. So far I am extremely pleased with the service I received. Your website was easy to navigate, informative, ordering was easy, you well explained shipping terms and policies were very appreciated ordering live birds. The price on what I purchased was the same per bird I paid locally last Spring. This includes shipping charges. The birds arrived exactly as scheduled. They were thirsty, hungry and noisy! I followed the instructions from you site on how to prepare and handle new chicks. All 16, you tossed in an extra, made the trip just fine. None dead or lethargic chicks and no pasty butts. I am very happy with my experience from Cackle Hatchery. I will order from you again. Thank you! (Posted on 11/12/2015)
