    Very fast delivery, healthy chicks.

    It took about 3 weeks after I placed the order for them to ship the chicks. Since I live a state away from the hatchery, it only took 1 day from the day they shipped to arrive in the post office. None died, all of them were very healthy, they sent extras just in case some died. Much healthier than the chicks in at Boomgaars.

    Healthy Chicks

    I ordered 5 buff, 5 white, and 5 blue silkie chicks. All arrived healthy and they included 3 extra chicks! I’m in silkie heaven and couldn’t be more happy with the quality of chicks and service. The chicks were packaged very well. I will definately be buying more Cackle Hatchery. Keep up the good work!

    Beautiful Babies!

    Thank you so much for the healthy delivery of chicks I received this spring. They all made the trip in great condition and seem to be thriving. I really appreciated the phone call alerting me the order was going to ship. The birds are excellent, I can not wait to see what they look like all grown up. I will positively buy from Cackle Hatchery again. Thank you for the great service and lovely babies.

    Female chicks

    We live in an area of North Carolina where we can have as many chickens as we want, but they must be female! I love silkies. Any chance of having them sexed? Do you sell older chicks that maybe can be sexed?

    Pleased with these Silkies

    Silkies are one of my favourite breeds and this color is very nice looking in my opinion. They make wonderful mothers/hatchers. The ones I received have nice poofy little crests, so I am excited to see how they look as adults! Thank you!

    As you can see I live in Puerto Rico. My chicks were sent Wednesday and arrived today Friday. All of them alive and in perfect condition. Thank you very much. It has been a pleasure doing business with you and will definitely will do business again.

    Customer Satisfaction

    Recently, I received an order of chicks that I had called in. They arrived the next day! It was so good to see that all strong and healthy. They will be a week old tomorrow. All is going well. I live so far North in New York state that when shipments take 3 or 4 days the birds do not do well. I hope that this speed can be used again when I order. Thank you for healthy birds and getting them here by next day.
