    Anyone ordered from Cackle Hatchery? What was your experience with them? I want an assortment of colors of OEGBs, which they offer. I DON'T want to have to order a minimum number of a particular color, and I want LOTS of color options. I love color. Anyone have other suggestions for where to get that, or is Cackle Hatchery my best bet? Thanks!

    I got some beautiful GLW and SLW chicks from them. They are about 2 months old and have been very healthy babies.

    I have nothing but good things to say about Cackle Hatchery.

    Ideal Poultry? They have an insane amount of variety and offer assortments to avoid extra fees.

    I got my assorted OEGB from Ideal Hatchery. You can check out My Page for pictures. Here is what I got in my 25 chicks.

    5 Blue- 2 hen, 3 roo
    5 Red Pyle- 3 hen, 2 roo (1 hen had crocked beak)
    2 Silver Laced- 2 hens
    1 Gold Laced- 1 roo
    7 Silver Duckwing- 5 hens, 2 roo
    3 B. B Red- 3 hens
    2 Gold Duckwing- 2 rooster

    I found them very pretty, friendly, and hardy. (I only lost two out of the whole shipment, and I did get rid of the hen with the crocked beak.)

    Good luck,
    Jamie

    Cackle Hatchery has good birds. I adore their Easter Eggers.

    I received 5 SLW and 6 GLW and 5 Doms all from Cacklehatchery!! They talked me into the doms and I LOVE them!! The Doms are my favorite!! I am so glad that I chose cacklehatchery! They are 9 weeks old and almost the size of my 18 month old big girls. Haven't lost any and for my order of 16 pullets only 2 turned out to be roosters....appropriately named Sparticus and Nero. My husband wants to change their names to Chicken and Noodles! They are all easily handled and very sweet! I will always use Cackle Hatchery.
