Cackle Hatchery® offers multiple varieties of the Sumatra chicken, including the Black Sumatra. There are a few things that are notable about this chicken’s appearance like the dark to black skin on their face and long tail with black plumage. Originally bred to be a fighting chicken in Southeast Asia, it was admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in the late 1800s. You can place your order and we will ship them to you as soon as possible. For additional details about this chicken breed, contact Cackle Hatchery® today!
Newbie Note: There are some white feathers in their 1st and 2nd stage feathering which is normal but by the 6th month they are solid black feathers.
Unfortunate start, great ending Review by Heather F
I ordered 3 black Sumatra and 3 white Yokohama chicks. When they arrived, the post office called me at 6 am, I picked them up at 6:30. When I got them home to the brooder, I found they hadn't all made it. I lost another the next day. I contacted the company and was offered a refund or replacement with additional order to meet the minimum order. I ended up getting blue Sumatra and more Yokohama since the black were backordered a few weeks. I now have two healthy flocks and I'm working on their coop and run when they're ready to see the real world. This company really came through. The shipping gets costly, but how they package to keep the little ones safe must get costly. (Posted on 4/7/2017)
Wow! Review by Hi
Wow! My chicks just arrived. They are really pretty, and in great condition. The packaging was shocking it was so well! They were also really sweet, they ate out of my hand and were drinking within 15 minutes. They of corse were really sleepy at the end of rhe day. I really do recommend this program, you will not be let down. (Posted on 5/20/2016)
Beautiful chicks Review by Jessica
I am very happy with the look and condition of our Sumatra chicks we received from Cackle Hatchery today. They came when they were supposed to, in a clean box and peeping chicks. All are bright and appear to be healthy as well as eating and drinking. Thank you!! (Posted on 5/20/2016)
