If you are looking for a miniature size of the Wheaten Cubalaya standard chicken breed, you’re in luck. At Cackle Hatchery, we offer the Black Breasted Red Cubalaya Bantam. Admitted into the American Poultry Standard of Perfection in 1960, this is a rare breed that makes for an excellent show bird. They are notable for their pea comb and low carried tail, and this specific variety features gorgeous black and red feathers. We sell the Black Breasted Red Cubalaya Bantam as baby chicks only, and you can order yours today. For more details about this chicken breed, please contact the Cackle Hatchery team.
My niece and I order Cubalayas for her to show in 4H. They are a friendly, unique, and alert little bird which she enjoys showing. They are listed as Threatened on the Livestock Conservancy Conservation Priority List and are not well known. She enjoys showing them for the reasons I listed and, also, because they are the only Cubalayas at the show. I wish more people would raise our American Heritage breeds to keep from losing them!

Cubalaya Review by Bub
This bird is a very beautiful Cubalaya, feathering is great, hackles are just beautiful to go along with there flowing tails. They run outside with my Jungle Fowl. They are somewhat predictor resistance because they love to hang out in the woods or under brush. Winter hardy because of the rose comb.Love there upright position. This all because of Cackle Hatchery. Thanks. Bub. (Posted on 10/30/2019)
Chicks arrived safely! Review by Deborah Ohio April 2008
Just a note to let you know that all is well with my order. I was impressed with the packaging that you had the chicks in. It was very secure and the "nest" kept them well protected from bumps and the cold. This was my first time ordering any type of animal through the mail and I admit I had concerns about this, especially since my order was all bantam chicks. But all peeps were healthy and alert and adjusted to the brooder no problems. Also since this is my first try at chickens I appreciated the care sheet that came with the birds. I would definitely recommend your hatchery to anyone interested in poultry. You handled my small order promptly and exactly as stated on your website. (Posted on 1/11/2016)
