Description

The Golden Comet chickens are one of two modern day production brown egg laying strains from hybrid breeding that Cackle Hatchery® produce. They are known for their fast body development, fast egg production and rich brown egg shell color. The parent stock is made from a proprietary Cackle Hatchery® bloodline/strain of the Cherry Egger male and the Rhode Island White female.

This strain will start to lay eggs at a younger age than most standard breeds and produce large to extra large brown eggs. They are also color sexable as chicks for the first generation which are the chicks you receive. Chicks from the second generation will not be color sexable and will come in multiple colors. As chicks the cockerels are white and the pullets are more brownish red in color. Leg color is mostly yellow but will get some greenish. Hens feathering color varies with brownish feathers and white feathers. Adult rooster feathering color varies from totally white to white with light to dark red feathers on shoulder feathers.

    Great Golden Comets

    Found this breed a couple yrs ago and they are my favorite along with my Barred Rocks. I now have more comets than rocks. Very hardy bird as I let them roam around each day. We get hit by predators occasionally and the rocks and comets are camouflaged well enough that they survive better than other breeds. Both breeds also lay pretty well in our cold climate. So far no problems at all. Will continue to buy from Cackle.

    Healthy and fast-growing

    I have ordered from this hatchery before, and been very pleased. My mom and I continue to buy this breed based on personality and performance. I ordered the hens to be vaccinated and probiotics and electrolyte for them which I gave on arrival. All were alive when they arrived, and still no losses over 2 weeks later. This is a great hybrid-we have older hens that still produce and are very calm compared to another breed my mom had given. We both decided to go back to Golden Comets and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you!

    Excellent!

    Ordered 3 females and received 4 healthy chicks in mid September. They started laying in February at 4.5 months old. They have been consistent layers ever since and I collect 3 to 4 eggs daily. The chickens are friendly and super healthy. Would recommend to anyone!

  6. Marcus

    Thank You

    Just received my order. Very pleased with the packaging. The post master said they get a lot of chicks and ducks there. Yours was the best that she has seen. I gave her your company name. She’ll be recommending you all to the locals. Thank you

    Sweet Chickens

    Received my four golden comets (I ordered three but they sent me an extra one) back in February. All four survived the trip from Missouri to San Antonio, TX and were super cute and healthy. They are all still alive now 4.5 months later and we just got our first egg today. I didn’t realize they laid such large eggs! Dwarfs our four year old leghorn eggs. Also, these chickens are very friendly and great with my kids. So happy we ordered them!

  8. Lloyd

    VERY Pleased

    I ordered 5 Golden Comet roosters for cross breeding with some game hens. Was given 7. As of today they are 3 weeks old, very healthy, tall, vigorous and beautiful boys. They are very attentive to my voice and come running when I enter the brooder room. Very well pleased with these Golden Comet. Thanks Cackel Hatchery

    GOLDEN COMETS

    WE HAVE RAISED SEVERAL BREEDS OF CHICKENS AND COMETS LAY SOONER AND LAY LONGER LAY MORE EGGS PER WEEK THAN THE OTHER 4 TYPES OF GROWN EGG LAYERS. WE ARE IN FLORIDA AND THEY DO WELL IN HOT WEATHER VERY EASY TO HANDLE . GET ALONG WITH OTHER CHICKENS BUT DONT TAKE ANY NONSENCE FROM OTHER CHICKENS THEY ARE BY FAR THE BEST CHOISE FOR EGG PRODUCTION .ONLY DOWN SIDE THEY EAT A LOT HUNGRYEST BREED OF CHICKENS WE HAVE

  10. Jan

    Love my goldens

    I ordered 18 chicks and received 19, all 19 are over a year old now and laying beautiful brown eggs almost every day, every other day over the winter. Friendly breed. Could not be happier with them.

  11. Anya

    Wonderful!!

    I ordered 4 golden comets on July 21 and received them on the 26th (they hatched on the 24th). They arrived in perfect condition and grew up to be wonderful layers!!! We got our first egg on CHRISTMAS (Christmas miracle!)! They started laying at about 5 months old and have been laying consistently (one lays every day!) ever since. They are such sweet mannered hens! Sadly we lost one of them to a hawk, but even then we are getting almost 3 brown eggs every day. They are consistent layers of quality eggs and are by far one of the best breeds (if not the best) and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

    very happy

    we ordered 15 of this chicks and they arrived all alive. NO DEATH. They are now 4 week old and healthy. Plus they gave us 1 extra. Our first time to raise chickens and we ordered here. Very happy. My daughter wants more and we don’t have space.

  15. Tyler

    Great!

    My family and I are new chicken owners, so we only ordered three golden comet chicks. They were shipped in a nice little confined box and cackle included a fourth chick as well! I expected that because I read that they may do so incase one doesn’t make it through the shipping process. They all arrived great. The customer service throughout this whole process has been excellent! They answered all my questions I had! Thanks Cackle!

    Golden Comet Organic Eggs

    Received my Golden Comets in late June 2016 and went out to my hen house yesterday and checked for eggs and there were 14 eggs waiting for me. I have 6 golden comets and it is November 14th. Eggs were small. I hope the eggs will get bigger. Thanks Cackle Hatchery, I’m looking forward to many organic eggs from my Golden Comets over the next few years.

    EXELLENT

    Absolutlely fantastic service. Ordered 10 chick deal and received 11. Every chick was extremely healthy and survived. 5 months later they have started laying beautiful brown eggs and we have already gotten one full size extra large egg. Couldn’t be happier.

  18. James Prairie Grove Arkansa

    Good job Cackle Hatchery

    Every bird that was shipped to me is now laying beautiful brown eggs. Twenty eight chicks turned into 28 hens. Thank you for such healthy birds.

    Excellant Review

    Just preparing to make our first order. I am excited for these egg producing girls. A friend of our recommended you & we are looking forward to doing business with you, heard wonderful things about your customer service & products. Also be ordering some Polish, one of my favorite chickens, which sadly a skunk tat got in coop killed 🙁 No skunks, coons or fox can get in there now & my husband built metal doors so no way in their inside coop at night other than pulling cable from outside coop. So no longer do I need to worry & we close up their coops around 8:00 PM daily, all put themselves to bed but a few night owls so I just pick them up & them up, cuddle then set on their inside roost. So so excited to do business with you & will place our order soon!

    Excellent

    Got two hens last year with five other breeds of hens. I get two identical darker brown eggs that don’t fit well in a large egg carton most days. They have nice dispositions too. Laid all thru our cold weather. I’m really impressed.

    Love our new chickens!!

    First time with chickens we decided to go with the golden comets for faster maturity and for being friendly as I have kids.. We picked them up this morning at the post office peeping away. Once home and opened the box all healthy adorable chicks very well packed. We watched the hatchery videos on care very helpful! Gave them first drink and they were eating and drinking in seconds. They have such cute personalities one is small and feisty, one is chirpy. We received 16 total. One big girl, she may be the blue ribbon winner! We will see. Can’t wait to watch them grow and produce some good eggs for us. I highly recommend Crackle Hatchery we will definitely be using again. Will be getting broilers! Thanks again for excellent service and quality!

    Thank You

    Thank you for the wonderful & healthy Golden Girls -shipped 06/15/2015. All are thriving. They are very friendly, smart, amusing, adventurous etc. I call them for one for all & all for one gang. They have names but come to sweeties. Thanks again

  24. Nick December 2015

    Excellent

    Have ordered these twice. All healthy and grew vigorously. Provided brown eggs from each hen at minimum of every other day. Even the cold of winter didn’t stop these hens from laying. Did so well I recommended them to a coworker and she also had amazing results.

  25. Tommy South Carolina March 2012

    Thank You!

    The Golden Comets and Production Red chickens were picked up from the Post Office this AM. I was ready for them with feed/water and warm brooder. After dipping their beaks, all seems well. Have had to add additional food on the new paper towels this PM. Fully realize this is common info for the company, but feel I have some quality birds that will thrive: barring any setbacks of which I now control. Short of them being chilled during transport no problems should arise. THANK YOU!!! for a quality product and the professional way I was treated when placing my order.

    Chicks

    I just wanted to say thank you for a delivery of very healthy and beautiful chicks! This is the second time we have ordered from your company and the second time we have been very pleased with the babies!! I would have ordered. Thank you again-we will be ordering from you in the future I am sure!

    Baby Chicks

    Received my order of Golden Comets this morning. They are all healthy and drinking and eating just out of the shipping container. Thanks so much for the quality of the baby chicks. Your service is second to none. In the event I need anything else in the future you will be the first place I shop. Thanks also for the three extra chicks that were added to the 15 chick order. You will be recommended highly from me to anyone.

  28. Joe North Carolina June 2013

    Thanks!

    Just wanted to say thank you. Y’all shipped out my order this past Monday and I was able to pick the chicks, poults and goslings up at the post office Tuesday before noon- a full day earlier than expected! Everyone was happy and healthy and all have been thriving this week. I’ve always bought chickens locally and was skeptical going about ordering poultry through the mail, but it seemed that was the only way to go given that’s wanted some goslings and poults and it was late in the year, Well, I am very happy to say that all of my concerns were for nothing. I could not be more pleased with your customer service department, the health of our new flock and the entire Cackle “family” that play a part. I’ll definitely be a repeat customer. Thank again for everything from a grateful dad and an exceptionally excited 6 year old daughter. All the best

    Cackle Hatchery

    I love this hatchery! It is cheap while reasonable and my birds from them get the best comments. Your video has been viewed more than a thousand times and has given a five star rating by voters. I just wanted to pass this along.

  31. Jon & Jennina New York April 2015

    Thank You!

    I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that we are very pleased with our order. This is the best batch of chicks we have gotten so far. We did lose one in shipment, which was sad, but the rest recovered very nicely from their journey to us and are doing great.

  32. Jeremy & Jaclyn Kansas June 2011

    Cackle Hatchery
