Description

Cackle Hatchery use’s our F1 Olive Egger hens and we cross it back with a mix of males of the Black Tailed Red Marans, Black Ameraucana and Cream Legbar. This cross will produce eggs that hatch into chicks and grow up to lay eggs that will produce a wide variety of olive egger shades and several eggs with more blue hues and chocolate hues in a class of F2 Olive Egger. We are sure you will love the Cackle Hatchery genetics we have used to produce these egg shell colors. For the 2024 season, we are only offering the not sexed option of our F2 Olive Eggers.

Highly recommend to order 25 to 30 not sexed baby chicks to provide the likelihood of having several different crosses of females that will lay specific color hues.

    Purchased 20, received 2 extra. All arrived alive and in great condition, all made it to adulthood. Got pretty much exactly 50/50 sex ratio as expected, and decided to keep several roosters for maximum genetic diversity. They get along weirdly well for roosters and there’s been no fighting at all. Hens are a bit skittish but that doesn’t bother me. They’ve started laying and the eggs are beautiful, most are pale blue or green but I also get some gorgeous dark olive eggs and a few brown as well. I added a link to a photo, hopefully it’ll work. Any white eggs are from different chickens and not the OEs.

    Chicks arrived healthy. Ordered 8 back in May, received 9. So far 8 have turned out to be roos, and I’m not sure about the 9th one. I understand it’s straight run, but I wish they had a sexed option because I wanted olive eggs, not 8 (or 9) roosters.

    I ordered 25 of these babies and received a couple extra. It was much appreciated, as I’ve had some bad experiences with mail orders through other hatcheries in the past. I ordered in June and all my babies arrived chirping, happy and very strong. This was the first time I never lost a baby. Every single one of my chicks has been incredible. They are now almost a month old and I have moved them to an outdoor brooder since the summer months have been hot. They are all thriving and still very strong. I can tell that Cackle has some great, strong line of genetics here. I’ve never had such strong babies before. Thank you so much for giving me faith in a hatchery that ships again!

    First time ordering and couldn’t be happier! Chicks arrived chirping and full of energy. They are eating and drinking like champs. We ordered 6 and received 7! Very satisfied and excited to find out how many hens/roosters we got. Also super egg-cited for some colored eggs!

    First time ordering chicks online. Purchased 15 and received 18, all in good health. Within minutes of unpacking, they are acting spunky, eating and drinking. Hatched on Tuesday and arrived in South Florida by Friday morning.
