This is just one of the 18 varieties that we have been developing for decades. There are several reasons why you would want to have these chickens on your property. Not only are they known for their gameness, but the hens make great brooding mothers.

You would compete for ribbons with other breeds that are listed in the class “All other Standard Breeds.”

  1. Tyler Puckett

    We got a couple extra each time we ordered. The shipping was a breeze and they arrived healthy and happy all 3 times we’ve ordered from cackle. I am exceptionally pleased with this hatchery. It is the exact opposite of what you are told (the horror stories) when you mention ordering chickens. We will always use cackle! The red OES jungle fowl are super friendly and adventurous. They’re great free rangers and have awesome personalities. They even do great with our kids! Thank you cackle hatchery!

    Healthiest mail order chickens. HANDS DOWN!!!

    Out of 2 order of chickens I’ve only had 3-4 die and that is very impressive. All my Old english red jungle fowl have been exceptional.

    I ordered 5 birds, and we got them all alive plus two extra!! All 7 chicks are adults now and beautiful feathers. They are mean birds, but very beautiful. They are all a healthy size, too! We ended up with three roosters and 4 hens.

    Happy with these after 1 year+

    I started over with my free range flock and wanted “gamier” birds but not too gamey where you couldn’t turn your back on a rooster. Rooster of this group has not even challenged me in the daily ritual of letting him and 10 hens out each morning or putting them up in the eve. Hens are 50/50, some skittish while others don’t mind eating right out of my hand (rooster always eats out of my hand). If you live in the middle of 600 acres of woods like I do and like to free range then you can’t go wrong here. Oh and if you forget to put them up/coop door shuts accidently then no worries, they’ll find a roost 6-10 ft off the ground close to the coop and stay there for the night. Also I have 2 broody hens from the batch sitting on eggs right now. Very happy with this purchase from a free range perspective.
