- Cinnamon Queen Chicken
The Cinnamon Queen is one of two modern day production brown egg laying strains from hybrid breeding from Cackle Hatchery® that produce fast body development, fast egg production and rich brown egg shell color. These strains will start to lay eggs at a younger age than most standard heritage breeds and produce big large/extra large brown eggs. They are also color sexable as chicks for the first generation which are the chicks you will receive. Cockerel chicks are white and the pullet chicks are more brownish red in color. Leg color is mostly yellow but a few may have some greenish color. Feathering color varies with brownish feathers and white feathers on the adult hens. Feathering color varies from totally white to white with light to dark red feathers in shoulder feathers in the adult rooster. Chicks from the second generation will not be color sexable and will come in multiple colors. The parent stock is made from a proprietary Cackle Hatchery® bloodline/strain of the Rhode Island Red male and the Rhode Island White female. Our Cinnamon Queens will look and perform very close to the ISA Brown bloodline. So book these early because they are a high demand layer for farm use with egg production.
We also offer at limited times of the year Cinnamon Queen Fertile Hatching Eggs

Thank You Cackle Hatchery Review by Bonnie
Hi, as a first time orderer from Cackle Hatchery I wanted to take a minute and let you know how pleased with your service I have been. I ordered small order city/town chick offer and they arrived happy and healthy and on time. With an extra chick to spare!! Also ordered a small order of Guineas, hatchery choice, with a special request that I wasn't sure you would be able to do but you came through!! As a first time customer i can't tell you how impressed I have been with your attention to detail and care with shipping. All chicks/keets arrived happy and healthy, eating, drinking and ready to go. So want to say a big Thank You. I will be highly recommending you to anyone who wants a dependable source for poultry. (Posted on 7/13/2018)

To the Good People of Cackle: Review by Larry Kenimer GA 2014
I received my order of Cinnamom Queens chicks this morning...one day late due to the huge ice storm in the south. (three days instead of two). I fully expected the worse, but when I opened the box I found all the chicks alive and well. Thanks to your expert packaging for winter shipments, the chicks were up quickly drinking their sugar water and pecking at the feed I had scattered on the brooder floor. In the past, I have received late orders from other firms that did not fair so nicely. You are to be commended for your SERVICE. Thanks and I will order again! (Posted on 12/20/2017)

Early layers Review by donbobh

Eggslent little chicks! Review by Nick
I drove down to the hatchery to pick up the chicks, to our dismay they were closed due to being short staffed that day, but left a number to call if you came from out of town. We called it and was greeted at the door by a great staff member, we ended up leaving with two cinnamon queens, a speckled Sussex and a buckeye. All chicks are doing great and can't wait to see them grow up! This place is amazing, I'm glad I made the trip down to get these little chicks from them. (Posted on 6/28/2017)
very happy Review by cje
we ordered 7 cinnamon chicks and they arrived all alive. They are now 4 week old and doing very well. Plus they gave us 1 extra. Looking forward to get more chicks . (Posted on 6/23/2017)
Super positive Review by NCOF
Our birds arrived ahead of schedule, in great shape, and clearly labeled. The difference between having all expectations met and a hatchery that falls down in one or two areas is enormous. This was our first experience with Cackle Hatchery and I'll definitely order from them again. I never write these things but couldn't help myself in this case. (Posted on 4/18/2017)
Exactly what was expected. Review by Amazing chicks!
These babies were ready to go as soon as I got them home. Although my order was messed up due to a misunderstanding on numbers, I'm still very happy with my order. These chicks will be a month old this week and are doing an amazing job! Not a single death and everyone is growing like weeds! They have started putting out pin feathers, so they look like your typical teenager lol. Even though they seem to be a bit flighty I have not been pecked even once by them. The rooster is already very protective of his girls!
By far, the best choice of hatchery and of chicks! (Posted on 4/3/2017)
Great experience Review by Erica J.
Purchased 15 chicks--speckled sussex, easter egger, cinnamon queen, buff orpington and dark brahmas. I was sent two extra--buff orpington and easter egger. All chicks arrived super healthy and on time. It was a great experience with Cackle Hatchery from start to finish, and I'm so pleased since this was my very first experience purchasing chicks.

LOVE these birds as far as laying. They are aggressive to the EEs tho and two of my fathers EEs had to be isolated from them, they had them down almost Killed overnight. BUT they come running and seem to love us humans (could have to do with the treats LOL (Posted on 2/26/2016)

prize winning chickens Review by Gina, California July 2012
We ordered 40 from you for our first time project. We just took 2 sets of meat pens to the fair and received supreme champion and reserve champion. Not bad for our first time. The judge said they were so nice they could go to the state fair. They received 80.00 for each pen. Not toooo bad. Just wanted to let you know how impressed we are with your Cornish Cross chickens and we will order again. (Posted on 12/8/2015)

Attn: Customer Service Review by Rick Missouri July 2010
I would like to thank everyone at Cackle hatchery for the service I received from the first time I called and had a ton of questions until today when i received my chick's. The customer service staff was very polite and if the answer wasn't known they asked someone and gave me the answer. Upon arrival of my chicks today I was very pleased in the condition and health of your birds...I ordered 235 chicks and after counting them I received 244 (9) extra birds just in case of any of any of the birds dying in shipment. I am proud to say only 2 of the birds out of 244 were dead on arrival. I feel that is a good ration and again want to thank everyone at Cackle for a job well done and I will be proud to recommend you hatchery to anyone. Thank you! (Posted on 11/16/2015)
Thanks Review by Denny Arkansas April 2015
I would like to say I am happier with the chickens i got from your Hatchery than any others I have raised, I have kept chickens for the last 25 years and this flock is the best. They are docile and right now I am getting 18-20 eggs per day from 24 hens. You can bet when I recycle these girls I will be ordering from you again. Once again Thanks. (Posted on 11/11/2015)
