Japanese Bantams are among some of the best-looking miniature chicken breeds available, and at Cackle Hatchery®, we have several different varieties to choose from. For example, the Gray Japanese Bantam is just one of many amazing birds we have available. These chickens make great pets, and they require very little feed and space in order to thrive. This variety has gray and black feathering, along with the standard features of this breed like short legs and a large comb. You can place your order today for baby chicks and we will ship your Gray Japanese Bantams in no time. Read here about the Lethal creeper gene in Japanese Bantams.

    They needed extra attention as day olds compared to our Mottled Japanese Bantams, Old English Game Bantams, and Silkies. However, we kept 3 pullets and they are doing great! They’re friendly and 2 look like clones of each other, one has a fibro black comb and waddles (very cool!). We actually wanted this as a our rooster, but only ended up with hens. I’d buy this variety again and recommend for 4H and little humans. 4 of 5 were female (confirmed with who we sold the extra 2 to).

    14% Survival

    We ordered 5 Gray Japanese Bantams along with other birds and the survival rate was horrible. They shipped 2 extra birds, but it only made the survival rate slightly better. I understand that there’s a lot going on right now with COVID, but the way Cackle has handled this situation is poor. They are offering to replace our chicks, but not till August. Very disappointed and will not use Cackle again.

    Really pretty tails.

    I ordered the Japanese Old English Bantam, because I have had a lot of Old English and I love them. The Japanese had really pretty tails and are a touch above the Old English. My only complaint is that I always get 3 hens and 5 roosters or 2 hens and 6 roosters, and I don’t know what to do with the rest of the too many roosters, as I won’t kill them. I only wish they would put half and half at least. That is why I took off one star, but they are really pretty.

    Wonderful service

    This hatchery sent ALL short legged healthy chicks that enabled my son to show them-(longer legged chicks hatch normally in addition but are not showable) Did well in county show. This is a very friendly breed, however, not quite as hardy as other breeds.

    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.
