Surprise! Review by Packing peanut
Got one of these that was a packing peanut in one of our local feed stores order of chickens. They sold it to me aa silkie but I knew it wasn't.
No one could figure out what this chicken nugget was so I emailed cackle and they responded swiftly.
I did have a few chicks die almat immediately. Nothing was wrong. I know because I helped the feed store unliad the chicks. Lost 4 blue silkies day one but this lil nugget has been a champ and is thrivin and is really active and social. Really this breed the best so far. (Posted on 3/8/2019)
A great bantam to start out with! Review by Noah Vance
I purchased 15 of these in 2015. I purchased another 25 this spring(2018) and out of the 40 chicks 16 hens made it to adulthood. I have managed to hatch out over 100 chicks this spring using the older stock from 2015. They are an outstanding bantam to have on your farm. The hens sit on clutches of 10-12 eggs and every one will hatch. I would recommend this bantam 110% (Posted on 12/27/2018)
