Good free range layers. Review by Bright Hope
Attractive, fun birds to have on a small farm. We like their size and they have been good layers. Eggs are a good size. Hens and rooster do well free ranging. (Posted on 11/2/2019)
First Place Review by 4-h-er
We have shown the Buff Brahma Bantam for the last couple years. Last year my daughter showed and received a Grand Champion ribbon. This year she showed and received Reserve ribbon.. Beautiful!

Love my brahmas Review by Julia
Chicks arrived in great condition. Grew healthy and fine. Now almost 7 months old and happy beautiful birds. They are surprisingly prolific layers. Most days we get 5-7 eggs, from 7 hens! The rooster is gorgeous and a great protector to his harem. Attentive and fairly gentle with them..I’m very happy with my little flock. (Posted on 10/30/2019)
Beautiful babies!! Review by Lana
We just received our 5 Buff Brahma Bantam chicks and they are so cute! Peeped all the way home after picking them up. Our little rooster, "Big Red", is funny already. They are healthy, happy and have been active since the moment we got them home. Thanks so much!! My son is really excited about watching them grow and showing them as his 4H project this fall.

Chicks arrived in great shape Review by Diane
I ordered just six bantams, three buff brahmas and three red cochin. I was nervous as the weather turned cold and it was only the middle of March, but they all arrived today alive and lively plus one extra red cochin. Thank you so much Cackle hatchery! Can't wait to see them grow. They are eating and drinking like mad. (Posted on 3/15/2017)

Bantams arrived this AM Review by Peter Texas May 2010
Thank you for the extra-mile effort to call and ask about sending my order early. it was a big help to us. I received the call Wed afternoon and they arrived this morning. Friday, in great shape, all alive and very active. I have ordered from other hatcheries for years and always been treated well, but Cackle's selection, quality, personnel and process have been the best. Always friendly, always met their commitments, replaced the lost chicks without question. The chicks from the first order are feathered out and totally healthy. These were the first banties we ever ordered and we were a little nervous. Our grands are going to have fun showing them, owning them. Us too. (Posted on 11/13/2015)
