I called the advice line before making my purchase. The lady I spoke with took her time and answered all of my questions. She gave me great advice. I felt so much better about becoming a backyard chicken farmer. I was confident in my breed choices and in my ability to take care of the day old chicks. I purchased 14 hens and a rooster. They are all thriving and I couldn't imagine life without them.

Pros - Excellent quality
Beat other Hatchery prices!
Cons - Never had an issue
I have used Cackle at least a half dozen times (for both chicks and Broad Breasted Turkeys) and they are my go-to hatchery. The prices are good & the birds are always healthy and vigorous upon arrival. I've also never had an order arrive and be incorrect, which can sometimes happen- but it's so much better when it doesn't! Also, I have been fortunate enough to never have sexing errors of more than 10% which is a BIG plus.
There's always so many new people wondering who is good to order from, and Cackle, in my opinion, is always a safe bet for quality hatchery birds.
Pros - Lots of options, honest, warranties/guarantees, amazing birds, incredible staff, on time shipping, low minimum shipping, accurate sexing, reasonable prices
Cons - None
Of all the chickens I've ordered online, this is the best place I've ever gotten them. My chicks always arrive perfectly healthy and on time. Meyer Hatchery always makes sure that every customer satisfied and updated on their packages. They're extremely reliable, amazing service, and perfect birds. I recommend them to everyone
