Miniature chicken breeds generally make great pets, and the Black-Tailed White Japanese Bantam is no exception. Originating in Japan in the 1700s, this beautiful chicken is also a terrific choice for anyone looking for a show bird. They are easy to care for, and they require very little space. In addition to standard features like wings that touch the ground and a large comb, this variety has arched black tail feathers.

Fun birds - Cute Review by Steve
We like the birds and even the challenge of hatching and raising. My grandson owns the birds and they do not have the correct undercoat color so did not place in 4H show. If you find birds with correct color please contact me! (Posted on 11/1/2019)
Great chicks Review by Don’t know what this means
Gentle and sweet! They will set on a nest forever and I’ve had them hatch and raise multiple kinds of chickens. My grandkids always have to have this breed for pets. They are fairly good layers but tiny eggs - not what I have them for. They are just beautiful Not for egg production but once they set you can put eggs under them and they just love to raise chicks and are super good moms. (Posted on 10/29/2019)
Thanks a Million Review by Edsel Michigan May 2015
I want to thank you for packing my chick order. You did an outstanding job. The chickens came at 8:15 am Wednesday morning in good health. I also would like to thank Tiffany for calling me on my replacement of short legged chicks. Thank again for the wonderful service and i will recommend friends to your hatchery. (Posted on 11/18/2015)

Cackle Hatchery Review by Kathryn California May 2014
I just wanted to say thank you. I have always been very happy with the poultry I have received from you. I also want to thank you for going through the trouble to cancel my order. I have been ill and only yesterday learn it was rather serious. I hope it will be okay to place orders again with you in the future. I do hope to support your business again in the future by placing order and continuing making people happy locally and meeting new friends by providing breeds that aren't available locally. Thanks, and good wishes to all at Cackle. (Posted on 11/10/2015)
