- Breeder Farm Source: Cackle Hatchery® Poultry Breeding Farm has been developing our bloodline or strain of pure Silver Spangled Hamburg chickens since 1971.
Always dreamed of having Hamburgs and finally got them. Definitely smaller than other chicks so it would probably be best to keep them in a separate brooder even though I didn’t. Ordered three and got four. One died at a day old and 2 of the remaining three were roosters. They fly really well and are more alert than my other breeds. Great looking bird!
Siver Spangled Hamburgs
The Silver Spangled Hamburgs we ordered from Cackle Hatchery are excellent chickens. They are a smaller breed. We ended up with all hens which is fine. They hang with the other chickens outside and are really alert and fast. Beautiful birds. Everyone that sees them wants to know if they are for sale.

These are great little companion chickens, hens and roosters alike. The ones I received are thriving and I love them. They are great FFA chickens also.
I ordered 5 silver spangled hamburgs and out of the 5, 3 were roosters and one of my hens died from a disease
Great bird! –
Beautiful bird to add to your flock! They get along well with other breeds. They are a little smaller but do well in cold or hot conditions.
Silver spangled hamburg review
All arrived alive though 5 were small and weaker than the rest never caught up and all 5 died before they were 4 weeks. The hens that made it are very strong I think too much in breeding am going to try to find a roosted unrelated. Thank you

Just a short note to let you know that I picked up the little ones this am at our post office. All are alive, drinking and eating up a storm!!!! Thank you so much for your attention to how you raise and ship chickens. It is MUCH appreciated. Next year when we get ourselves better situated I am sure there will be a substantial order coming from us.

My praise to Cackle Hatchery and their staff
Good Evening, I just received my order of chicks from Cackle Hatchery today. I want to extend my sincere praise to your company and staff. My chicks arrived healthy and without a single casualty!!! I have ordered from other hatcheries in the past and have waited anxiously for my chicks to arrive only to be disappointed by dead or nearly dead chicks. Your chicks are the best I have ever received from a hatchery. Although, I am experienced enough to be able to tell which breeds are which, I appreciated the fact that your staff took the time to mark similar breeds. Again, thank you to your staff, They won me over as a customer. I will be sure to tell all of my fellow chicken fanciers how impressed I am with Cackle Hatchery.

Just wanted to let you and Jeff know how pleased I am with the Red Jungle Fowl and the Silver Spangled Hamburg chicks you sent…They arrived right on time, in great shape and are continuing to thrive. Thanks, also for the two extras you sent…I’ll be ordering again when I find myself in a fowl mood.
