Beautiful blue rosecomb bantams Review by Mac
I ordered 15 chicks, 18 arrived, and I kept them in the house for about 6 weeks. Moved them outside in a secure pen (all kinds of predators out here), but let them out to free range daily. Our dog killed one before she learned they were now part of the household. So I now have 5 roosters and 12 hens. Their appearance is fantastic, both hens and roosters. They started laying eggs in mid October. They are not as tame as I had hoped, but still come running to me for their scratch. I could not be more delighted. (Posted on 11/5/2019)
Great Review by GranmaB
Totally beautiful bird. Head feathers are like silk with beautiful blue feathered body. His white ear lobes are a bright white with his unique red comb. Love him. (Posted on 11/4/2019)
Great for showing in 4-H Review by Tracy from Oregon
Ordered seven last spring for my daughter for 4-H. Three ended up making it with two being roosters. So we got rid of one rooster and she had a pair, which is what she wanted. She did great with them. Won all-around poultry showman with the hen and both had Champion conformation ribbons. They are gentle, showy and small. Perfect for 4-H. She loved showing them to people. The hen was in the master showmanship class and did fine with all the other kids handling her. They are in an enclosed pen and seem to do well that way. Would recommend this breed.

Very pleased Review by 4-H customer
I called to order 10 blue rosecomb bantams for my son's 4-H project, for this they gave us a 10% discount, and they shipped on April 22,2019 and arrived 2 days later. We received 9 chicks, but they added an Easter egger to make up for the short supply of the bantams. All chicks were delivered alive and in great shape. The packaging was appropriate for shipping with 2 layers of bedding and heating packs. We are very pleased with cackle hatchery and would order again in the future. (Posted on 5/7/2019)
