Awesome birds!! Review by HWish
I purchased a group of polish chickens 5 months ago. Each one has grown into such beautiful and sweet birds. I have one rooster and he is big, crazy haired and great. I got a great mixture of colors. They are very happy and healthy. I highly recommend!!! (Posted on 11/25/2019)
FABULOUS service, VERY Healthy Chicks!! Review by taylor
I ordered these for my now broody silkies, which i got last year from here. (unfortunately, They seem to all go broody around the same time, and also tends to happen when i have a fertile egg shortage.) I had originally ordered other poultry along with these, and absent-mindedly failed to noticed that the others weren't available for another 5 months!! I called and spoke to a friendly staff member, saying i needed them ASAP for the broody hens- and they gladly adjusted my order with the substitutions of my choice for the other part of my order. Both the polish and the substitutes came alive & well - the postal worker who handed them to me could see them through the air holes in the box and told me he couldn't get over how healthy and active they were. i suppose that's saying alot, as he works at a post office in the middle of farmland central, that sees all kinds of baby chick come in on a routine basis.

happy & healthy!!! Review by taylor
Yet again, great, strong, Healthy baby birds!! i have ordered several breeds, and have ordered multiple times, and i have yet to see a DOA from Cackle hatchery!!! BIAS WARNING: i've always wanted a polish chicken; i couldnt decide which colors i wanted and so i stuck with this. they are very happy & healthy; strong right out the box & fit right in with all my other chickens!!! the actually are quite subdued & seem to have a "let it be" / "No worries" attitude. have not seen them dominate anybody, and also they are quite docile to a human's hand.

Cackle Hatchery Review by Chet Maine May 2009
WHOW, WHAT SERVICE??? For an order of only 15 chicks. My chicks were supposed to be here on May 20 and they were not so I contacted you folks. The gal that answered my call was so so nice, kind and patient, and helped me track down the chicks. We got them out of the box 20 hours sooner that way. A little tired at first but they picked up right away, every one a good one! Thanks Cackle folks. Super kind service!!! (Posted on 1/9/2016)
