    Well late last night my husband and I decided that our next chickens should be Silver Laced Polish. We looked at a couple of sites and the next thing I knew the credit card was out and 5 of them will be headed our way. This morning I thought I better check with BYC to make sure this hatchery has a good reputation since I have never ordered chickens before. Any insight would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Cackle Hatchery is the best.

    You could not ask for a better hatchery. I have ordered from them MANY times and have always gotten lively and healthy chicks.(only had one chick die out of 20+ orders they refunded my account immediatly) they grow into beautiful adults.

    I was looking at Cackle for our chicks, but I wanted some Speckled Sussex pullets, and Cackle only sells SS as straight run. [​IMG] So I went with Meyer instead. Hope everything works out OK, I haven't really seen anything bad about Meyer!

    I ordered Buff Orps, SS and EE pullets. I'm so excited! [​IMG] Good luck with your chickies! [​IMG]

    Thanks! We ended up ordering Polish, Cochins and Production Reds from them. Good luck with yours too!
