This is a miniature size of the White Faced Black Spanish Standard poultry breed. A Mediterranean old class breed, they are noted for their large white face and ear-lobes and are a great show bird. The white features should be fully developed within 12 months. This Spanish breed was admitted to the Standard in 1960. There is a Standard White Faced Black Spanish, however; we only offer the Bantam White Faced Black Spanish.
Newbie Note: There are some white feathers in their 1st and 2nd stage feathering which is normal but by the 6th month they are solid black feathers.
Received my 5 with 1 extra silver White Faced Black Spanish Bantams along with a few other breeds. All chicks arrived healthy & full of energy. 3 weeks later they're doing Great! I'm glad I did my research & ordered from Cackle Hatchery! (Posted on 6/29/2017)
Cackle Hatchery Review by Samuel, Massachusetts April 2012
I know this order was very small and this is the first time I have ever ordered from your hatchery, but could not be more impressed with your business. I received my bantam chickens all the way in MA in great shape and quicker than I expected. They are all eating and drinking right away and seem to be in good spirits. The post office notified me via telephone that they were in a USPS distribution center a couple of towns away, and gave me the option of coming to get them or waiting until later the next day to have them in my town. I went to pick them up. But furthermore you website was second to none. Your staff was extremely courteous answering silly questions and any information I needed you had the answers for. I will not lie I looking at about every hatchery site before buying from you. But your site was the most user friendly, had the largest selection of breeds available on one date, with all the big names in hatcheries, guaranteed live shipping quantities. I know you are not fools, and you already know what I told you. But I wanted you to know how pleased I am and that your hatchery is really something to be proud of. I know you will have to refund people all sorts of money in weeks ahead. People will complain. But I just wanted to say thank you. I appreciate your hard work. Good customer service is harder and harder to come by. (Posted on 12/4/2015)
Happy Customer Review by Mike California Sept 2014
I ordered 55 chicks from there and received 59 all alive at the beginning of August. One died later but the rest are great. I will not order from another hatchery other than this one. I will recommend you to anyone that wants to order poultry. You are not only the cheapest but have fast shipping and great chicks. Thanks (Posted on 11/20/2015)
