great Review by April
Very good breed of chickens. Very very friendly and super adorable. A very curious and trusting breed, unlike most ornamental breeds. Little eggs as expected as with ornamental hens. (Posted on 11/25/2019)

Love these Polish Chicks! Review by Korree
We ordered a batch of 16 chickens and included in it was 3 white crested black polish. They sent us an extra so we got 4. They all arrived in great health and we never had an issues with them. They are about 4 months now and they are so fun to watch. They are beautiful! Full feathers and such cool colors (and hair styles). Im so happy we got this breed of chickens and look forward to the years ahead with them! (Posted on 11/19/2019)
Black polish Review by Barb
Love these chickens. They do well with the white Americanas. Get bullied by the Marian’s. So cute. Two are roosters. One has a very loud crow (Posted on 11/19/2019)
so cute; in great health and very docile Review by the crazy chicken lady
so i got these as part of the "polish surplus" pack. they are so unique! i love their black color and their funky white heads allow me to keep an easy eye on them in the tall grass. lol. my girls are now almost full-grown, ready to lay any day now! they share the free-range space with a melting pot of many other (docile-breed) chickens and mutt-chickens, most of which are also from Cackle, or progeny of. They are so gentle and sweet- it's hard not to love them! (Posted on 6/13/2019)
Thanks Guys! Excellent Order Review by Mark Ohio March 2014
100% live arrival when I picked up this morning at Post Office. It's been many years since I ordered from you , from the looks of today's chicks that won't happen again. Excellent chicks, strong solid bodies, vitality and good crest on. One jumped into the brooder to drink before I even had a second to dip its beak. Never have I had that before even in ones I hatch.

We received our chicks (white crested black polish) on Tuesday morning exactly like you told us. We even had extras, thank you very much. 100% of the chicks were healthy and are in great shape.

Thank You Review by Toby Oklahoma July 2014
I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service and communications. The customer service department was great, very patient and understanding. This was my first chick purchase and I wasn't sure how everything worked so I was a little concerned. All the chicks arrived in great condition and I couldn't be happier with the folks at Cackle Hatchery! Thanks Again, (Posted on 11/5/2015)
