Quality bantams Review by Gerardo
I order 5 silver duck wing bantams and i am happy to say they all are alive and well. 3 turned out to be males and all three have beautiful plumage and colors. They also seem to get along well with no aggression issues. Definitely recommend these birds along with any other breed. (Posted on 10/31/2019)

Silver duckwing bantams Review by Ash ♡
We had a silver duckwing old english bantam that was the sweetest and friendliest of all our chickens. She disappeared one day and we had to get another. I ordered 5 and they were healthy chicks now grown and as friendly and sweet as our little Ash. (Posted on 10/31/2019)
Sad loss of our favorite chicken Review by Banty
We lost our little "Banty" to a hawk yesterday. Our family was and is devastated, as he was by far our favorite. Smallest defender of his 13 large hens, and always letting us pick him up (with an occasional peck to remind us of his manhood). We will definitely be getting another of these and hope to have just as good a result but for a longer life this time. RIP Banty. (Posted on 7/10/2017)

Thank You Review by Joseph January 2016
I want to thank you for my bantam old english chickens. I have never had chicks that love me so much. I treat them as though they are my children. They like to be held and kissed. I really love them. Thanks again. If I need more I will order from you folks again. (Posted on 1/7/2016)
Cackle Hatchery Review by John New York July 2010
I recently received my order of Old English Game Bantams. The order consisted of four varieties totaling 36 chicks. They all arrived in excellent condition, perfectly strong and healthy. In a short time they were busy eating, drinking and scampering around. I am really pleased with them! A very satisfied customer. (Posted on 11/18/2015)
