- Blue Sumatra Chicken
At Cackle Hatchery® we offer the gorgeous Sumatra chicken. This specific variety features blue tinted feathers as well as the long flowing tail and multiple spurs on the legs that these chickens are known for. Originating on the Island of Sumatra, this is a popular choice when it comes to rare breed chickens in America. The Blue Sumatra was admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 2002. There are very few breeders of the Blue Sumatra in the United States and very few have been breeding them as long as Cackle Hatchery® Breeding Farms. Our bloodline generally produces 1/3 black/blues, 1/3 blues and 1/3 splash. We only ship you the blue chicks, however their offspring will still produce the 3 color shades. Place your order today and remember to contact the team at Cackle Hatchery® if you would like any additional details

Show girl Review by Smokey and the Bandit
I recieved my birds in Feburary and my family is very impressed with our birds so much so we entered them into a poultry show for the very first time and our girl took reserve champion. These are high quality birds and are looking to start 2 more line this coming year. Thank you for having great birds. (Posted on 11/19/2019)

Favorite bird Review by Samantha
My blue Sumatra hen is now just over a year old and has become broody! Her mate is a gorgeous splash Sumatra (from a different source). She's by far my favorite hen out of the hundred or so I have had. (Posted on 4/23/2017)

Very Impressed Review by April
Received my order of (4) Black Sumatras, (4) Blue Sumatras, (5) Dominiques, and (3) Golden Laced Polish yesterday! Immediately upon entering the post office, I heard the peeps of babies! I live in a small Georgia down where it's not uncommon for livestock to come through the post office, and even the Post Master was impressed by the packaging of the chicks! We even got an extra Golden Lace chick! Everyone is eating and drinking well, and we're so happy with our new additions! (Posted on 5/5/2016)
