- Rainbow Assorted Females
Here’s your chance to start a rainbow flock of laying hens with this assortment of female chicks in a rainbow of feather colors. They will mature into hens that lay eggs in a rainbow of shell colors, delighting you with baskets of colorful eggs. Since different breeds lay eggs at different rates, this rainbow assortment spreads laying over a wider period of time. And since different breeds have different personalities, as well as different plumage colors, the rainbow assortment lets you enjoy the unique characteristics of several different breeds.
This assortment of female chicks is guaranteed to include Hatchery Choice of at least three different standard size breeds, which may include rare breeds and Leghorns. We will include as many different breeds — with the widest possible variety of feather colors and egg shell colors and shades — as we have available at the time your chicks are shipped. So if you can’t decide which breed you like best, why choose just one, when you can enjoy a uniquely attractive flock of rainbow assortment chicks.
Does not include any bantams.

I love 'em! Now, what ARE they??? Review by Mama Bear
I ordered the 15 count rainbow mix, plus one Welsummer rooster based on their personality description. I received 18!! Plus my roo, which I THINK I have identified. All were in excellent condition, and 2 weeks in, are happy and growing well. Now to try to figure out exactly what I actually have! So far...noooo clue. All the chick pics look so much alike. I suppose in the end it really doesn't matter...I just love 'em and will be thankful for the eggs they provide for my family. And if a few are green, blue, or chocolate, I will do a cartwheel on the way back to the house. God is so good, and gives so many fun and pretty things to enjoy. (Posted on 3/26/2019)
AMAZING, as always!! Review by taylor
So i almost always get a few of these...the selection is always superb and the chicks are always super-healthy! I've watched them grow up time & time again - they really ARE pre-sexed girls...this place doesn't lie to you. A rare find these days.
i also like this option because they are kinda like adopting, but with girls only. which works out welly for me, since i already have a rooster. We do some thinning out and rehoming for roosters when we order straight run, but every once in a while it's nice to know for sure you get said amount of hens - and you feel good at the same time because you're taking surplus chicks, that might not otherwise have a home.

Great service, shipping, and chickens Review by Justin
I ordered these and a few more to surprise my kids for Easter. Cackle got them out to me the next day and arrived in 2 days. They sent 3 extra chicks and all 20 were in fantastic shape when they arrived. Will definitely be ordering again for my next batch. (Posted on 3/30/2018)

hatcheries over the years. Cackle Hatchery has, hands down, the most healthy chicks I have ever received. We were pleasantly surprised by the 6 different types of piglets. We ordered 15 poulets and 1 roo and the hatchery sent us 3 extra. All are alive an Review by Michele
As an agriculture teacher I ordered from several hatcheries over the years. Cackle Hatchery has, hands down, the most healthy chicks I have ever received. We were pleasantly surprised by the 6 different varieties when we opened the box.. We ordered 15 poulets and 1 roo and the hatchery sent us 3 extra. All are alive and well. I just wish I new what kind they were!!! My grandkids are so pleased and having so much fun taking care of them. Thank you!!! (Posted on 4/16/2017)
So pleased! Thanks, Cackle Hatchery!! Review by Kate
I was very happy with customer service, from the few times I called for information, to the receiving of my order of rainbow pullets. The chicks arrived on schedule, were packed well, there were a few extra, and the information included with the chicks was very helpful. I'm sure I'll order replacement birds from Cackle Hatchery because I trust that I'll be treated right and will receive healthy chicks! (Posted on 2/22/2017)
Ordering/Shipment of Rainbow Pullets! Excellent Service. Review by Carrie
Received chicks and all are thriving and doing well. Thank you for the extra care. I live in NC and chicks came healthy and ready to get acquainted to their new home. I received two extra chicks. There are at least four different types of pullets as far as I can tell (maybe more). Excited to see how they change. Again thank you. I will be doing business with you again :) (Posted on 10/15/2016)

Just a customer message Review by Renee Wisconsin February 2014
Never knew Cackle Hatchery had over 300+ YouTube videos on products and breeder flocks. Very very interesting and a great customer tool to see different breeder flocks, different chickens, different set-ups in the way breeders keep their chickens, and even your product demos were intriguing. Keep up the good customer relations. These homegrown contests, the newsletter, and the "Born to be Wild speed freak video of hatch/shipping day are incredible hilarious and funny. Your public relation ideas are wonderful. And someone sure put in a lot video-taping all those flocks. Very very fun and enjoyable. (Posted on 1/14/2016)
