Sweetest little chickens Review by Dvail
I received 5 Bantam Cochins, all mixed color - straight run. There ended up being 2 roosters. One black (Licorice) and one dark (Molasses) - just gorgeous. The others were 2 light tan and one white (Sugar). The light tan hen (Honey) is the sweetest hen I have ever owned. She comes running over and wants to sit in your lap. My kids favorite chicken. Highly recommend this breed. (Posted on 10/29/2019)

Cute and friendly Review by Mom to 8
I ordered 5 and was sent 6! 2 Black, 2 Silver Pencil, 1 buff and 1 red. We are very pleased with them. They're perfect for little kids as they are docile and easy to hold. They look and feel like balls of fluff. =) they are not the greatest egg layers, but not many batter are. (Posted on 10/29/2019)

the best breed for me Review by Kathy Deutsch
My beloved grandma insisted that cochin bantams were the best. 30 years later, I agree. Have kept this breed since 2010. This batch was great! Smart, not needy. Good foragers. (Posted on 10/28/2019)

Love my little flock Review by Kari
I ordered the Chochin Bantam special. I wanted a variety and was nervous for what I would get. I ended up getting half roosters half hens and a great variety of colors. They were all alive and healthy when they arrived. This is my first time with the breed and I love their size and temperament. I'm so happy with my little flock. Thanks Cackle Hatchery.

Healthy chicks Review by Christie
Almost every chicken of ours is a cackle! That being said i was slightly dissapointed with this shipment. They sent an extra baby and they are all healthy which is fantastic. But theirs just no variety. I have 4 of the same. Thats why theirs only 4 starts. But i will be ordering again, i always do. Cackle has the heathiest chicks! (Posted on 10/25/2019)

I am extremely pleased with my order of assorted cochin bantams! I ordered 5 and they sent 9! I received 2 shades of blue 2 splash 2 extremely puffy partridge sisters 1 silver penciled 1 black and 1 birchen. All 9 arrived strong and energetic.
