Sexing is only 90% accurate and is not a perfect science… so you may need to always have a back up plan for a possible male ….

Perfect for backyard flock Review by EM
I have wanted backyard hens for years and labored over how to obtain the breeds and small number I wanted for our suburban lot. I finally settled on this city/town special and could not have been more pleased with the choice. My girls arrived in March of this year and have been healthy since the day they landed. They're now nine month old layers and a total delight. Got an easter egger, barred rock, and black australorp. Thank you Cackle SO MUCH for offering this option for small flock owners!

BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE IMAGINED Review by Katie
Our girls were shipped on Monday and we were contacted by noon on Tuesday that they were ready to pick up at the Post Office. They were happy and healthy and ready to live life and thriving. ( We ordered 3 - Barred Rock, Buff Orpington and a Rhode island Red and received 2 Buffs - total of 4. We couldn't be happier with the process from Cackle Hatchery and would highly recommend. Our girls had a nice warm bed and heating pad included in the package with a gel substance for hydration. We fell in love instantly with the love and care that went into the mailing process. Thank you Cackle Hatchery! We cant wait to start this process with our new loves. (Posted on 6/20/2018)
Healthy Chicks! Review by Kimiam
I ordered the city/town special of three chickens. I loved that I could select three different breeds. I chose a Buff Orpington, A Wyandotte, and an Australorp. I received four chicks. The extra is a Buff Orpington.
I picked up my little, brown, chirping box from the main post office here and found the cutest little babies inside. They were tucked in with some nesting material, a chemical hand warmer and a wet, green glob of what I think is gro-gel to provide a source of water/nutrition and pro-biotics. All were in good shape, but a little grumpy and loud at first. I showed them their water and food. Immediately afterward, it looked like they all fell over and died, but I guess that's how it looks when they take naps. ...Great joke, Mother Nature! All are healthy now. We did have two of rounds of pasty butt with one of the Buff Orpingtons but even so, her appetite remained good and she stayed active. She was just a little more shy during the course of clearing that. We are using infrared heat lamps, which is drying and could have been the cause. Our chicks are almost four weeks old now, all healthy and very friendly. We love them!
Thank you, Cackle Hatchery, for the wonderful chicks, for packaging them so carefully, for providing such detailed guidance on the care of new chicks and for answering my questions over the phone as a first time chicken owner with great patience. (Posted on 4/25/2018)
Healthy chicks and great package Review by Ann from Texas
I live in the city with a prohibition on roosters and could not find sexed female chicks just straight run chicks. I have a small back yard so this package was exactly what I wanted. I ordered 1 Rhode Island Red, 1 New Hampshire, 1 Black Laced Golden Wyandotte. I received 6 chicks. Two of each breed. All were healthy and hungry. They are now 5 weeks old. Thank you so much for my girls. (Posted on 4/16/2018)
First chickens Review by Alih Nevada
I only wanted to get a couple chickens for my back yard because I was just starting out. I found the small town order and it was perfect! I got Easter Eggers because I wanted different egg colors, and my chicks arrived healthy and with an extra peep. My Gals are now 5 months old and should be laying any day now, though I suspect my dog found an egg today. My girls are healthy, never had pasty butt, no respiratory problems, and have always been good eaters. I couldn't be happier... well maybe I'd be happier with a "Happy Cackle", but that will have to wait for now. (Posted on 2/20/2018)
New to Chickens Review by Emily from Walla Walla, WA
My 8-year-old daughter had been pleading for chickens for several years. After she read a bunch of books and attended a farm camp with a focus on animal care, we decided it was time to let her have some backyard chickens. We didn't want her to have to wait until spring when our local farm stores will have chicks in stock, so I decided to try mail order chickens through Cackle Hatchery and am pleased with the decision. We ordered 3 chicks and received 5. Despite their long journey, all 5 arrived healthy and energetic. The videos were very helpful and helped us make sure we got the chicks off to a good start. They're now a little over a week old and they are calm and sweet, love being handled, and have such distinct personalities already. (Posted on 8/24/2017)
Excellent and Caring! Review by Taramedic
I received my CITY TOWN PULLET SPECIAL 3 order last Friday and this was my first time having a delivery of chicks via USPS. I received 4 (extra Buff Orp) were chirping loudly and in terrific shape. It's now 4 days later and they are thriving well!! I couldn't be happier!!!! (Posted on 4/11/2017)
Great experience! Review by Coco
I love the option of a small order of pullets where you can choose different breeds. We got a barred rock, and NH Red, and an Easter Egger. All arrived healthy and happy (and vaccinated!). Couldn't be happier with our gals. Thinking about getting some bantams now....will definitely order from CH again. Thank you! (Posted on 4/6/2017)
Beautiful healthy chicks Review by Jesscwde
I purchased golden laced wyandotte, speckled sussex, and welsummer. I received 2 welsummer babies with the order. They shipped on the day they were supposed to. All 4 chicks are healthy. I love the markings on the babies. They arrived today and look wonderful! (Posted on 3/29/2017)
My experience Review by Easter Egger
I used this option two years ago. I'm happy to say that my three Easter Eggers arrived healthy and happy! I live in northern Wisconsin so I was worried about the distance but all was well, they were packed nicely with their heat pad and were delivered in June. My local post office gave me a call when they came in and I ran down to pick them up. I live at a rental home that allows me to have up to 6 chickens, so my new three joined my older three gals and was happy to get some when the bird flu wasn't allowing me to order from the local ag center. It is worth the money if you're chickens will be pets! I would reorder in a heartbeat. (Posted on 2/9/2017)
Appreciate the small orders Review by Val
Thank you for having small orders available for my northern New York address. My three pullets arrived on time and healthy. I got three different varieties and they are very pretty girls and getting quite personable. Your care guide was a little different from how I usually start them but I did it your way and it worked out good. Thank you again (Posted on 10/11/2016)
Great for small orders Review by Amie
We had ordered chicks from another hatchery and lost 2. They were breeds we really wanted so I shopped around. I think this is a great deal if one is looking for a few select breeds. We ordered 1 Australorp and 2 Golden Laced Wyandottes, but got 3 instead. I was very pleased with the extra chick. So far, everyone is growing well and looking healthy. I love my sweet babies. The only thing that I would like to change from these small order specials is to allow more specific breed selections in the bigger packages (5 chicks or 10 chicks). The customer service was great.

Very pleased witg my Wyandottes Review by Erica
I was very pleased to be able to choose three different breeds at such a great price with vaccines and shipping included. The hatchery called me to make sure I could accept my chicks if they shipped right away. I received four perfectly healthy chicks and could not be more pleased with these beauties.

Satisfied Customer Review by Juvilian

Just a customer message Review by Renee Wisconsin February 2014
Never knew Cackle Hatchery had over 300+ YouTube videos on products and breeder flocks. Very very interesting and a great customer tool to see different breeder flocks, different chickens, different set-ups in the way breeders keep their chickens, and even your product demos were intriguing. Keep up the good customer relations. These homegrown contests, the newsletter, and the "Born to be Wild speed freak video of hatch/shipping day are incredible hilarious and funny. Your public relation ideas are wonderful. And someone sure put in a lot video-taping all those flocks. Very very fun and enjoyable. (Posted on 1/14/2016)
