Awesome Service, Beautiful Chicks Review by Darrell Hamm
I purchased 10 of the Cherry Eggers and 12 of the Austra Whites. All the chicks arrived healthy and chirpy. Let them loose in their brooder and they were as happy as can be. 4 weeks later they are feathered out and have the most beautiful colors to them. I definitely recommend all my friends try cackle hatchery for their needs. They kept going to stores only to have to settle for birds they truly didn't want. They wasn't sure how the online ordering would go. My success from Cackle Hatchery Service and care has definitely turned them to looking for the next batch to come from online order at Cackle.
Thanks for your great service. (Posted on 6/6/2016)
Great Egg Layer Review by Ed
Received the chicks last Feb 15, starting laying the last week August 15 and have yet to stop. Laid almost every day this winter. I am ordering more in a week or so. Chickens are also great free range forgers, very low maintenance. Ed (Posted on 2/8/2016)

Pleased Customer Review by Donna Pennsylvania Aug 2009
First time I ever ordered chickens. My 40 chickens are doing great! They were born July 1 and growing in leeps and bounds. I will purchase more in the spring. They were very healthy when they arrived. Just wanted you to know how happy I was with them. Keep up the good work. (Posted on 11/10/2015)

Thank You Review by Kimberli California May 2014
I want to thank you for your assistance and help with turkeys that were sent to us on Monday May 19th. Last week for what ever reason half of our shipment of birds was given to me soaked at the post office. I called your center and a wonderful woman was very helpful and did all that she said and read the pamphlet and followed the direction however it was just to much for those poor turkeys, I gave it my all!. She was so kind to talk with and we do appreciated the second delivery. They are all eating and drinking like champs! We look forward to showing the chickens at the local fair and auctioning the turkeys. I will send pictures from this event! (Posted on 11/5/2015)
