  1. Megan Radtke

    I ordered 3 silver, 3 golden and 3 buff cochin. I received 4 silver, 4 golden, and 3 buff which was great except I ended up with only 1 hen (golden) out of the 11 received!!! I’m incredibly disappointed. For the most part all were healthy except one buff but they still all have survived to 16 weeks. Most were pretty chill except the silvers. They have been absolute jerks from the start. Would’ve been happier if the hen to roo ratio was better.

    My first time ordering chicks from Cackle hatchery. The shipping was super fast and the chicks arrived healthy, lively, energetic and strong! Thanks for the extra chick! These are the healthiest chicks I’ve ever received by mail. Best mail order experience ever! Will be ordering again!

    Roosters were Nice but Pullet Undersized

    I received 3 Silver Laced Cochins & 3 Buff Cochins all unsexed. The 2 Silver roosters, 2 Buff roosters, & Buff Pullet are all good sized beautiful birds. The Silver Pullet is beautiful, but considerably undersized.

    The baby chicks I ordered came over UPS …. all chicks were super healthy. These chickens are growing into very hardy birds, beautiful dual purpose breed.

    Polish Chickens

    If you are not familiar with Polish chickens like I was when I ordered them a couple things to know. Polish roosters are not very friendly and are very aggressive towards the more relaxed breeds like the cochins. Polish hens are timid and tend to be picked on by other breeds. Therefore, I would not suggest mixing Polish’s with other breeds, just my opinion.

    Happy Customer

    I just wanted to send a note saying how happy we are with our recent purchase. We ordered 15 chicks and got 16 happy, healthy fluff balls last week. They all seem in great condition and I appreciated the info and help I received when you guys called me after placing my order. Thanks again.

    Our new chicks

    Our new babies arrived yesterday. I want to commend you. They arrived carefully packaged with the somewhat larger chicks in a separate space and all looking spry and safe. I had sworn I would never order from a hatchery again after an absolutely HORRIBLE experience one time with another hatchery. If you order less than 25 they put in extra chicks for warmth during shipping. i didn’t know that having never ordered them before and I ordered 20 banties. Some person put in extra-regular-size chicks (leghorns) with the banties and seven of my little banties were crushed in transit. Nevertheless, nothing would bring back those poor little chicks and I knew I would never do business with them again. When we have occasion to order chicks again, you can be assured it will be from Cackle Hatchery.

    Not to worry, our chicks came in the noontime delivery. They seem to all be in good shape. The Cochin substitution for one Yokohoma was fine. Yokohomas are beautiful birds. We may find that we will want a few more later. I really appreciate your commitment to perpetuating rare breeds. I believe the narrowing of our livestock gene pool puts agriculture at risk. My daughter is looking forward to a blue ribbon at the County Fair. She’s ready to put in the work.

    I wanted to let you know how please I am with the substitutions you made to my order!!! Thank you for taking the time to call me and spend your time helping me with this instead of just making the decision to send other birds. I am so looking forward to having your chicks. I have friend that use your hatchery and have for years with wonderful success. Thanks again
