Excellent Flock Protector Review by Winn
I received my Golden Laced Cochin as part of an unsexed rainbow assortment of Cochins. The Golden Laced Rooster was not the largest, but was the most dominant & became a capable protector of the flock (not aggressive to people though). He became a beautiful bird. I would order again.

Best Birds In My Coop Review by Andrew H. Watson, Lincoln Ne
This breed is among the best in my mixed-breed coop. They are fairly substantial in size and grew faster than most of the birds. Additionally, they have beautiful plumage which they have maintained well, and a very gentle temperament. Their feathery feet are really quite attractive and distinctive.
One of mine which was supposed to be a hen showed up as a rooster, which was alright. He was very large and extremely attractive, and maintained order exceedingly well in the coop. Unfortunately, city ordinances don't permit for a rooster in town, so he ended up gracing the supper table, where he also did an admirable job.
A very fine breed which I will certainly be buying again. (Posted on 12/10/2019)

EXCELLENT Review by kristen
I purchased some chicks for my daughter's fair project. They arrived healthy and fast. She won 1st place with her Golden Laced Cochin Rooster at the county fair- judge said that if she keeps his feet feathers in show quality he is definitely Grand Champion Quality!!! (Posted on 1/15/2018)
THANK YOU! Review by CSCARTER
I just received my chicks in the mail today. I was very nervous of ordering online... my post office is pretty rural and normal mail can be difficult to receive... much less live mail!! My chicks showed up happy and healthy! The post office attendants were laughing at their vigor from inside the box! The overall condition easily surpasses that of the chicks I have purchased at my local feed store. I will absolutely only purchase from Cackle in the future! Thank you for taking such great care in the handling and delivery of our new chicks. I know they are just a handful of the thousands of chicks you see everyday, but to me, and am I sure most of us that mail order chicks, they are part of our clan and I appreciate you taking such great care in doing everything possible to get them here safely!

Cust Response Review by Debbie North Carolina Jan 2017
Just wanted to say that the Standard Golden Laced Cochins and the Standard Barred Cochins I ordered and received back in April are looking just beautiful! Very beautiful chickens, with great feathering! I am pleased with both breeds, and am especially excited about the standard sized Barred Cochins because it was only when I saw them on your list of cochins did I realize that the Barred even existed in the standard size! Thank you again, I would and do recommended your hatchery to my friends and acquaintances. (Posted on 1/4/2017)

Chicks arrival Review by Connie North Carolina May 2009
For Mother's Day I wanted Cochins but I didn't want to order from this other hatchery so I hit the net and found your site. Needless to say I was very leary about ordering, but my son ordered 15 of them for me as a present. Well they came in this morning to my Post Office here and when I put them in the brooder only one really wanted more than a mouthful and there were 17 of them in there. They were robust and all alive. None "off color" sort of speak and chirping their heads off. I put the light on them and they pecked at the food a bit then settled down. All in all I am completely overjoyed at the care in shipping and the condition of the little ones. Now I know you don't personally check each and everyone but I appreciate the care with which you must give the eggs/chicks. From now on you will be our supplier for bantams and other species and I shall make sure anyone I come across that is thinking of getting some orders from you!! Thank you again for such great chicks. Blessings to you and yours, (Posted on 11/18/2015)
