I ordered a different bantam special but it’s not available anymore so I’m just gonna leave my review here. I ordered some chicks from another Hatchery about a month ago. I had the worst experience ever! Half were dead when I picked them up at the post office and almost all of them died within hours. They were just very sick looking. I wasn’t gonna buy anymore chickens in the mail but I saw a good deal at cackle Hatchery and decided I would try one more time. Well I can say I’m so glad I did! The baby chicks were all alive and very healthy looking. I got one extra. And I got them a day earlier then expected. I’m so glad I decided to take a chance on purchasing from cackle Hatchery. It’s just so exciting to actually pick up live healthy chicks. I bought the bantam assortment and don’t know what they are yet but they are all different colors and the best part is alive and healthy!! Thank you cackle Hatchery
Great mix bantams
I went to the store few months ago and this was my first purchase of chicks ever! The variety is amazing and they are healthy and growing like crazy. Can’t wait to see what everyone turns into.
Happy healthy chicks
I received my very small order of assorted purebred bantam chicks yesterday. I ordered the minimum of 15, but was sent three extra. All are active, lively, eating, drinking and getting around great. My grandson has a sizzle bantam, and was very excited about the new chicks. I will be ordering some specific breeds from you next spring when we decide which have the personality we prefer.

I can only imagine how hard you all work to successfully send chicks all over the United States. Today, I hope you’ll share my feedback and thanks around the hatchery! This is in regard to an order of 25 assorted bantams and 10 bantam Ameraucanas. I picked them up yesterday before dawn. They were peeping like crazy but once home every single chick started thriving. Please know how important your fine work is to us. Each of these tiny chicks could live well into their teens, making them more of a family member than even a dog! Thank you for every time you’re especially careful in your work–the results of that care will affect my household for many many years to come. Thank you so very much

Cackle Hatchery Folks
I want to let you know how very satisfied we were with the excellent service you provided for our small order. You responded to email questions, expedited the shipping to fit our schedule and gave us just the color and breed assortment we asked for. Our post office phoned us at 6:00 a.m Friday with strong healthy chicks. and all are thriving. This is our second time as customers and there will be many more. Thank you

Impressive Customer Service
I wanted to express my appreciation for your customer service department. I ordered the Assorted Purebred Bantam Special Hatchery Choice (50)–but the Post Office ‘lost’ them for one whole day–and the delay caused us to lose about half the group. I called and spoke to Ali, and was very pleased when she was able to send us some more chicks to cover our losses. Ali was personable, kind and helpful and I really appreciated that during the stressful experience of losing some of the chicks, due to the negligence of the USPS. Thanks again, Cackle Hatchery!

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with our babies! They are growing like weeds, interesting since they like weeds and grass more than food! Thank you again, I will be recommending you to all my friends!

I really wanted to reach out to you and let you know what an awesome business you are running! I’m in insurance and have the privilege of working with many commercial businesses and I can say that you company is one of the best I’ve dealt with. I am recently working with Gale and she was just great. I’ve dealt with several others and everyone is always extremely nice and willing to think outside the box to accommodate the customer. You guys have helped me through several issues with ordering and cancelling orders and I really just want to thank you and all of your employees. You can be sure that I will be recommending you to everyone and I look forward to a long term relationship. Thanks again for being on of the few businesses left that truly cares about their customers.
