- White Silkie Bantam
The White Silkie Bantam is one of several varieties of the Silkie Bantam breed available at Cackle Hatchery. This is a unique bird that has fluffy white feathers, and it will impress at poultry shows. Not only does it make for a great show chicken, but its tame nature also means they do well as backyard pets. They are very broody in general, so if you need help raising chicks of another breed, the White Silkie Bantam can handle the job.

We ordered 10 silkie chicks and very happy to receive 11! We lost two to predators but all were alive and well when they arrived from Cackel. I definitely suggest cackle! (Posted on 6/18/2018)

Thank You Review by Laurie Texas May 2009
A huge thanks for my bantam chickens. All 25 plus the extras sent arrived doing well, and here we are three weeks later and all chicks are still going strong. I have purchased chickens from two or three different local places before and lost some here and there, so I am very impressed with how they all are doing. I will definitely recommend your hatchery to my poultry friends, and plan to order from you again when we're ready for more (Posted on 1/9/2016)

Thank You Review by Tom North Carolina May 2010
I placed a order for 3 African Geese 25 sultans and 10 silkies and received them as healthy and happy as they could be. I am once again a very pleased customer. I put Cackle Hatchery before all others. You have the best price, best service and the best quality. I look forward to my next order, just not sure when but there will be another. Thank you for the extras, this goes to show just how much you care. Thanks you again (Posted on 11/13/2015)
My praise to Cackle Hatchery and their staff Review by Michael New York April 2010
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. (Posted on 11/13/2015)
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)
Cackle Hatchery Review by Dawn Wisconsin May 2015
I am anxiously awaiting my chicks. I am so excited. It is my first time to have backyard chickens. I researched many hatcheries and found yours online. I was impressed and very much enjoyed your tutorial of the family business and history of the company. I also liked the videos of the different chicks and information given about the different varieties. I found that very helpful when choosing which varieties I wanted and would be best for us.
