No Choice of breed and these are all cockerels of Heavy Breed Chicks (Heritage male poultry) includes *3 Free Ducks of our heaviest males ducks that are available that date will be sent. Photos are some of the birds you may receive. Generally these old time heritage breed male roosters take 4-5 months to reach 5-6 pounds of live weight. They do not have the growth rate as the modern day broilers and take a longer time to harvest weight. They will have a lean meat and not the legs and/or heart issues that some of the modern day broilers have. No refunds or reships on free ducks.
*Hatchery choice male ducks are only available for March-June excluding the 2 weeks before Easter.
Very happy with our order
We will be regular costumers to cackle hatchery. We got our chicks yesterday. All are healthy. I found the staff at cackle hatchery to be very nice, professional, and understanding. We received our birds in a very timely manner. Thank you so much.
I’ll be ordering again soon!
Received my box of birds this am. Only one bird didn’t survive the trip. The 3 ducklings and 99 other chicks are happy, healthy and very comfortable in the brooder. Thank you Cackle!

The chicks I ordered last week and were shipped on Monday came in this morning, the PO called at 7:10 and I went to get them. I simply can’t believe it but there are zero dead. Everyone made it here ok. They were drinking and eating up a storm! I have them in a 350 gallon water tank so they have a lot of room and they are inside, setting in the sun with a heat lamp. All is well…thank you so much.

Overall I am extremely happy with my chicks. They are so much more boisterous and healthy seeming than the other hatchery I ordered from last year. I will definitely be ordering from you again, possibly this year. Thank you for the quality birds!
