A huge thanks for my bantam chickens. All 25 plus the extras sent arrived doing well, and here we are three weeks later and all chicks are still going strong. I have purchased chickens from two or three different local places before and lost some here and there, so I am very impressed with how they all are doing. I will definitely recommend your hatchery to my poultry friends, and plan to order from you again when we're ready for more (Posted on 1/9/2016)
Cackle Hatchery Review by Samuel, Massachusetts April 2012
I know this order was very small and this is the first time I have ever ordered from your hatchery, but could not be more impressed with your business. I received my bantam chickens all the way in MA in great shape and quicker than I expected. They are all eating and drinking right away and seem to be in good spirits. The post office notified me via telephone that they were in a USPS distribution center a couple of towns away, and gave me the option of coming to get them or waiting until later the next day to have them in my town. I went to pick them up. But furthermore you website was second to none. Your staff was extremely courteous answering silly questions and any information I needed you had the answers for. I will not lie I looking at about every hatchery site before buying from you. But your site was the most user friendly, had the largest selection of breeds available on one date, with all the big names in hatcheries, guaranteed live shipping quantities. I know you are not fools, and you already know what I told you. But I wanted you to know how pleased I am and that your hatchery is really something to be proud of. I know you will have to refund people all sorts of money in weeks ahead. People will complain. But I just wanted to say thank you. I appreciate your hard work. Good customer service is harder and harder to come by. (Posted on 12/4/2015)
Bantams arrived this AM Review by Peter Texas May 2010
Thank you for the extra-mile effort to call and ask about sending my order early. it was a big help to us. I received the call Wed afternoon and they arrived this morning. Friday, in great shape, all alive and very active. I have ordered from other hatcheries for years and always been treated well, but Cackle's selection, quality, personnel and process have been the best. Always friendly, always met their commitments, replaced the lost chicks without question. The chicks from the first order are feathered out and totally healthy. These were the first banties we ever ordered and we were a little nervous. Our grands are going to have fun showing them, owning them. Us too. (Posted on 11/13/2015)
