Healthy Arrival Review by Martha
I cried when I found all of the baby guineas dead last week. This morning
the replacement shipment arrived and they are all healthy and happy. Thank
you so much for you kindness and rapid response in shipping the
replacements. I'm delighted. I've ordered chicks from Cackle Hatchery for
over 40 years and this is the first time that I have ever gotten a DOA
shipment. Since I am now 80 years old, I probably won't be here to do a lot
of business with you in the future, but I definitely will be your faithful
customer until the end. I recommend Cackle Hatchery to everyone who visits
our farm. (Posted on 8/16/2017)

Fantastic company! Review by Jason
I purchased a batch of hatchery select keets in a smaller quantity of only 15. The ladies at the hatchery are extremely nice and even called me to ask if I wanted the keets early as they had an over hatch! I was shocked and happy to learn I would get the keets 2 weeks early. The lady I spoke to made sure everything would be prepared in time for their arrival before sending them off. She did warn me that they should be arriving in 1-2 days but sometimes could take 3 days to arrive and gave me instructions to ensure the lowest mortality rate if in the event this issue happened. Well, the worse case situation happened and it took a full 3 days for the babies to arrive.
Upon receiving we had 1 DOA baby and I called the hatchery the very next day they were open (received them on a Saturday so I had to wait until Monday to call the hatchery). Over the course of Sunday to Monday, we lost an additional 3 keets (2 on Sunday and one Monday). Again the lady I spoke to at the hatchery was extremely nice and helpful and made sure I was giving the keets boiled egg yokes and apple cider vinegar in their water to help with the mortality. She let me know to call back every day to give a live count until they stop dying.
We lost one more keet on Tuesday before it was over. Luckily the hatchery shipped out 5 extra keets to compensate for mortality issues from shipping and in doing so we ended up with exactly 15 little feathery fluff balls of cuteness that we originally ordered and they seem to be going strong.
I am extremely pleased with the hatchery and their customer service! They kept me assured that I was doing everything possible and they were going to work with me in the event that we ended up with less than the amount that we paid for. I am extremely pleased we didn't have to go through shipment of more babies as I didn't want to but more little ones through the stress of shipping.
Without a doubt, I have found my go to hatchery for all my fowl that I am planning to add to our home stead in the future. Not just for their impeccable (pun intended) customer service skills but also the quality of their birds (even though we had 5 die off, that is still less than any other hatchery I have purchased from where I would lose 1/2 of the flock sometimes!)

Slightly Dissapointed Review by ricklorieba
I received my Guinea's today and all where alive and healthy. I ordered 15 and got 16 which was a pleasant surprise. Thanks for the extra keet. My disappointment is I only received 2 types of Guinea's, 6 Pearl and 10 Lavender. I expected at least 3 types. I guess it is what it is. Thanks, Rick B. (Posted on 6/16/2017)
I love my guineas Review by Steve in Georgia
These guineas are awesome! I got more than I bargained for. I received some lavenders which is my favorite color. All of the guineas were healthy and active. They're all doing great! The customer service is awesome as well and will bend over backwards to help you. You're not alone with your order, because they're readily available to offer advice in the event something goes wrong. I love Cackle Hatchery (Posted on 8/15/2016)
Thanks Review by Perry
I would like to say thanks for the Guineas I ordered (10) of this kind and although 11 was sent I lost 3 which I was quickly taken care of buy the people there and received credit back on my card...they are now about half grown and beginning to be very vocal which is what I wanted because of varmints around here.They get along great with all the chickens also and stay right with them.Thanks again for the great service (Posted on 7/17/2016)
