LOVE THEM! Review by Nora
Japanese bantams are very sweet, docile birds. They would make great starter birds for children. I love watching them move-it's like little boats sailing around. (Posted on 11/7/2019)

Thanks Review by Spiderbunny in PR
Everything went perfectly. We ordered 28 chicks from different varieties & got 35 total. Shipped on May 26 & got here on the 28th. I was so worried the post office would mess things up. They never called me but thanks to Cackle's system, I got the tracking # & monitored the shipment. They all arrived perfectly fine chirping like crazy & moving around. I followed their instructions & all were doing great til Saturday when 1 of the porcelain duccles died overnight. For such a long journey I am extremely & pleasantly surprised. We ordered 5 of these Japanese Bantams & got 1 extra. They are really tiny & so cute. The yellow variety is even smaller than the black ones. This is exactly what I wanted, micro chickens. They are really active & hold their own with the other larger chicks.Very pleased with the way the company works. Thank you so much.Highly recommend. (Posted on 4/8/2018)
Perfect! Review by Jane
I ordered 25 chicks. I live in California, so the shipping was a bit long - however, the chicks arrived at the post office a day earlier than predicted, and all chicks (including the four extra) were alive! I did lose one shortly after arrival, but the rest are doing great. It was a good assortment, with some from each variety in the mix. (Posted on 3/7/2018)
