Excellent quality Review by Sue S
I love these little birds. The blue Cochin bantams that I received are of an excellent quality. They all meet the poultry standards for show birds. They are very mellow little birds with fun personalities. The rooster that I kept is a mellow guy without the nasty rooster habits. I was really pleased with the customer services and business practices of Calckle Hatchery, the chicks arrived live and I only lost a couple of them. A straight run so 1/2 were cockerels. I gave those to a friend who will show them at the National Western this Jan, all of the little hens are laying, they produce a small bantie sized egg, pearl to off white in color. It takes 3 of these eggs to make up the volume of a regular chicken egg. These birds are a lot of fun. In the future I will only buy from cackle hatchery. (Posted on 10/29/2019)
Great birds!!! Review by HHF Blues
I am showing the blues at 4-H and Open poultry shows and I have done well with them! They all have great personalities and are easy to train for shows and to sit on your arm with no hassle! The judges always say I have a great flock of birds! After I received the birds I had blues to splashes, both have their goods and bads with show quality but with more birds from here and my own breeding I keep coming closer to a perfect bird!!!

Great Breed Review by Bantam Lover
I ordered blue Cochin Bantams for my grandson as his first breed to show in fairs. This breed is beautiful and friendly. My grandson has shown them in the county, district, and state fair; and has won blue ribbons with each bird. I heartily recommend these for children as a starter bird. (Posted on 10/28/2019)

Blue, Black, and Splash Cochin Bantams Review by Brent in Florida July 2018
I ordered 10 Blue, 10 Black, and 20 Splash Cochin Bantam Chicks and Cackle sent me 43 total on July 13th. As of today July 28th all are still alive and are as healthy as can be. This is the second time this year I have ordered chicks from Cackle Hatchery and have had healthy lively chicks sent to me both times. Cackle Hatchery is the greatest and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Cackle for the great chicks. (Posted on 7/28/2018)

I have been ordering almost yearly from Cackle for about 10 years now I believe and I am never disappointed. There is nothing but good that comes from Cackle! (Posted on 11/20/2015)
Thanks! Review by Saranne, Tennessee September 2010
A couple years ago I ordered some blue Cochins from you. I lost several and you replaced them. I never wrote and said thank you, so I am writing you now. This year I ordered 30 Easter Egg bantams and I cannot tell you how pleased I am with them. They were hatched 03/17/10 and have been laying over a month already. They are nicely muffed and bearded. Their body shapes and colors are lovely. I have joined the Ameraucana Breeders Club and have seen some pictures of quality show chickens and realize now how nice my chickens are. I am delighted and appreciative. (Posted on 11/20/2015)
Cackle Hatchery Review by Brad & Vicki Texas May 2010
We received them the morning after I wrote you. Chickens are wonderful!! We only had 1 die about 4 hours after we put them in the brooder. I am very happy with Cackle Hatchery. This is the 2nd time we have ordered chickens from you all. We will always do business with you and we will let our friends know. Thank you (Posted on 11/13/2015)
