Splash Silkies Arrived Review by Becky Nevada
My box of fuzz balls arrived this morning 2 days after shipping. They are all healthy and happy! The splash Silkies are darling and pretty little active things. My EE and black Ameraucana's are gorgeous, and the Cornish X are all good looking quality. This is my first order from a hatchery and I am very pleased with excellent communication, healthy chicks, and excellent quality. (Posted on 4/8/2016)

Our new chicks Review by Kristi, Virginia July 2013
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. (Posted on 11/27/2015)

Cackle Hatchery Review by Kathryn California May 2014
I just wanted to say thank you. I have always been very happy with the poultry I have received from you. I also want to thank you for going through the trouble to cancel my order. I have been ill and only yesterday learn it was rather serious. I hope it will be okay to place orders again with you in the future. I do hope to support your business again in the future by placing order and continuing making people happy locally and meeting new friends by providing breeds that aren't available locally. Thanks, and good wishes to all at Cackle. (Posted on 11/10/2015)
