Cackle Hatchery says my order is pushed back.

Discussion in 'Chicken Breeders & Hatcheries' started by Guinea Goonie, Mar 7, 2009.

  1. I just got a call from the local feed store. They told me that Cackle will not have my order until April 26 now. I am bummed.

    I ordered:

    Moulted Houdans
    Partridge Rocks
    Speckled Sussex
    Saipan Jungle
    Red shoulder Yokahoma
    and Lakenvelter

    5 of each and a few are pullet runs.

    Chicks must be really going quickly as i am sure I am low on the totem pole.

    The wife is at the local auction and she just called.

    They are selling layer hens for over 10 bucks apiece and some
    are bringing 15 bucks and up.

    WOW.

    I had a hard time getting my order of chicks last year. Same deal. Ordered through the local farm store and Cackle kept pushing it back or sending partial orders. I finally got all but 2 of what I ordered near the end of April. This year, I just ordered right from Cackle.

    With my order with Cackle I have to wait ten weeks. Now I'm down to 8 weeks. My order consist of 25 Americaunas,50 heavy assorted pullets,5 brown leghorns, 5splash cochins, 5 partridge rocks and 5 royal palm turkeys.

    This is the longest I have ever had to wait on an order but I'm sure it will be worth it.

    Yep, pullets and they are shipping on Tuesday the 31st so they'll probably be here Wednesday. Hope there won't be any April Fools jokes with my babies. [​IMG] Replied to your email.
