What a great experience! Review by JR in MA
I looked online at many hatcheries, and liked not just the website, but also the personnel at Cackle the best.
I ordered some Millie d'Uccles and other bantams as my first-time chicks. The whole experience was great - we lost one chick, but the rest were all healthy and strong. I had to re-home 3 cockerals, but the 3 d'Uccle pullets we have are darling. So friendly! They're now 4 months old and doing great. These were a little light on beards, but the muffs are so cute (for showing purposes).
I am so glad I worked through Cackle to get my very first girls. :) Thanks for the great shipping, phone discussions, and chicks, Cackle! (Posted on 10/20/2019)
AWESOME EXPERIENCE Review by Kansas Kayla
I ordered 25 Mille Fleurs and received a couple extras. They arrived active and healthy. They are 5 weeks old today and are all still thriving. No death losses at all. Overall super happy with my purchase. I have a few that have a lot of unusual black feathering, so as stated before by others some may not be high show quality. Otherwise wonderful healthy birds and I LOVE THEM! Thank you Cackle Hatchery, you exceeded my expectations! (Posted on 7/4/2019)
Healthy chicks-great quality for the price Review by CM
Received all healthy chicks +1. Lots of feathering down legs/toes, however lightly bearded and lightly tipped for those wondering about showing. Great friendly backyard birds with some promise for smaller shows. (Posted on 4/25/2019)

Excellent hatchery experience Review by Greg
I ordered 15 in 2016. All of my D'Uccles arrived alive and very healthy..Cackle even threw in a few extras. Being straight run, i received 11 cockerels and 6 pullets. This is a great breed...very friendly and fairly good layers. Although I had to give away most of the boys, the roos have all seemed to turn out to be easy going and friendly. However, my D'Uccles didn't seem to blend well in a mixed flock with heavy breeds even after nearly a year of cooping together. (Posted on 2/7/2017)
You know what to expect Review by Barbara
These are the most tiny & fragile chicks. I ordered 6 & received 9. Three did die so all is good. The 6 chicks are 3 weeks old, healthy as horses & so cute. I ordered more!! Love them! (Posted on 6/3/2016)
Cackle Hatchery Review by Connie North Carolina June 2009
Just a short note to let you know that I picked up the little ones this am at our post office. All are alive, drinking and eating up a storm!!!! Thank you so much for your attention to how you raise and ship chickens. It is MUCH appreciated. Next year when we get ourselves better situated I am sure there will be a substantial order coming from us. (Posted on 12/18/2015)
Cackle Hatchery Review by Samuel, Massachusetts April 2012
I know this order was very small and this is the first time I have ever ordered from your hatchery, but could not be more impressed with your business. I received my bantam chickens all the way in MA in great shape and quicker than I expected. They are all eating and drinking right away and seem to be in good spirits. The post office notified me via telephone that they were in a USPS distribution center a couple of towns away, and gave me the option of coming to get them or waiting until later the next day to have them in my town. I went to pick them up. But furthermore you website was second to none. Your staff was extremely courteous answering silly questions and any information I needed you had the answers for. I will not lie I looking at about every hatchery site before buying from you. But your site was the most user friendly, had the largest selection of breeds available on one date, with all the big names in hatcheries, guaranteed live shipping quantities. I know you are not fools, and you already know what I told you. But I wanted you to know how pleased I am and that your hatchery is really something to be proud of. I know you will have to refund people all sorts of money in weeks ahead. People will complain. But I just wanted to say thank you. I appreciate your hard work. Good customer service is harder and harder to come by. (Posted on 12/4/2015)

Im so tickled that I'm like a kid at Christmas time!
You shipped my Mille Fluer d'Uccles Wed morning and my post office called me at 10;45 est Thursday.
100% live arrival!!!!!!!!!. My little "Fuzzy Butts" were picking at the air holes in the post office. Opened the box and they were trying to get out.
