I am always pleased with chicks from Cackle. These and the Mille fleur variety were a gift for my mom and they have grown out wonderfully. We love them. (Posted on 11/17/2019)
Love my porcelains Review by Cami
Healthy babies. I even got extra and did not have a single loss. Beautiful, sweet natured birds. Roos did well at the fair this year. Thank you Cackle! (Posted on 11/7/2019)
Cute quirky birds! Review by Rebecca P.
I bought a mixed batch of baby chicks, all arrived healthy except for one that died the next day. I bought 5 porcelains total, and ended up with 2 boys and 3 girls. All of them are super quirky (one will get up high and fly on my head when she sees me) and friendly, And healthy. They are about 7 to 8 months old currently and doing great! (Posted on 11/2/2019)
Beautiful Birds Review by Carmen
The Porcelains are quiet. Not aggressive. We have one pair and they stay together even though we have 15 other bantams. They are shy, stick close to the barn even though they are free range. We have had very good experiences with Cackle Hatchery and will order from them again. (Posted on 10/30/2019)
Adorable chicks Review by Sophia
I really like cackle hatchery. They take great care of their babies when shipping them and they give you one or two more than you ordered incase something happens. The D’uccles I got were all healthy and happy. They are extremely adorable and friendly birds! Would definitely order from them again. (Posted on 10/30/2019)

Beautiful chickz Review by Ironcreek
Ordered my chicks on Cackle Hatchery website. Site was user friendly and secure. Picked my chicks up on the date, hatchery said they would be ready. The chicks were very healthy. Care instructions and thermometer was given. All my chicks survive and are all thriving adults now!!! Highly recommend.. (Posted on 10/29/2019)
Great little birds! Review by Amy
These little birds have quickly become a favorite! They are so docile and very pretty birds. We ended up with 2 hens and 1 rooster. I wish I had gotten more of them now! (Posted on 10/29/2019)
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 porcelain duccles & got 1 extra so even though it's sad it's ok. Very pleased with the way the company works. Thank you so much.Highly recommend. (Posted on 4/8/2018)
Thanks! Review by Smith
We have no words to adequately express our gratitude to everyone at Cackle Hatchery! The weather was so cold with temps in the 20's and wind chills in the teens. But a box of 34 chicks arrived safely! The little Porcelain D'Uccles are wonderful. Thank you so very much! The Smith Family (Posted on 3/18/2017)
