I bought 5 of the Polish surplus. They all were Golden Laced males. I was disappointed.

I ordered 15 polish chicks and received 16 or 17. I received at least 2 of every color possible. They all arrived healthy and active. They are now a week and half old and looking fantastic. Not a single loss from this order! Very happy with the purchase.

First time ordering from cackle and I was not disappointed. I was only supposed to get 5 but I got 2 for free! All the babies arrived live and healthy and I am immensely pleased. 10/10 would absolutely recommend.
I absolutely love these guys so much fun just watching.
I purchased a group of polish chickens 5 months ago. Each one has grown into such beautiful and sweet birds. I have one rooster and he is big, crazy haired and great. I got a great mixture of colors. They are very happy and healthy. I highly recommend!!!
FABULOUS service, VERY Healthy Chicks!!
I ordered these for my now broody silkies, which i got last year from here. (unfortunately, They seem to all go broody around the same time, and also tends to happen when i have a fertile egg shortage.) I had originally ordered other poultry along with these, and absent-mindedly failed to noticed that the others weren’t available for another 5 months!! I called and spoke to a friendly staff member, saying i needed them ASAP for the broody hens- and they gladly adjusted my order with the substitutions of my choice for the other part of my order. Both the polish and the substitutes came alive & well – the postal worker who handed them to me could see them through the air holes in the box and told me he couldn’t get over how healthy and active they were. i suppose that’s saying alot, as he works at a post office in the middle of farmland central, that sees all kinds of baby chick come in on a routine basis.
happy & healthy!!!
Yet again, great, strong, Healthy baby birds!! i have ordered several breeds, and have ordered multiple times, and i have yet to see a DOA from Cackle hatchery!!! BIAS WARNING: i’ve always wanted a polish chicken; i couldnt decide which colors i wanted and so i stuck with this. they are very happy & healthy; strong right out the box & fit right in with all my other chickens!!! the actually are quite subdued & seem to have a “let it be” / “No worries” attitude. have not seen them dominate anybody, and also they are quite docile to a human’s hand.

WHOW, WHAT SERVICE??? For an order of only 15 chicks. My chicks were supposed to be here on May 20 and they were not so I contacted you folks. The gal that answered my call was so so nice, kind and patient, and helped me track down the chicks. We got them out of the box 20 hours sooner that way. A little tired at first but they picked up right away, every one a good one! Thanks Cackle folks. Super kind service!!!
