    My cackle order arrived at the post today about 11 am. It pretty much got here over night. 16 chicks, welsummer, and olive and Easter eggers. So far they are all spunky healthy beautiful chicks..no losses at this point. I've got them in the brooder and already gave them some water then food. They were hungry. it seems that they are having trouble figuring out the heat plate so when they chirp loud I put them back under it. I hope they figure it out soon because I can't be here all day tomorrow. Does anybody have a cackle olive egger that is laying age? I was wondering if someone could post a pic of the eggs? I just can't wait to see what color green. Lol. If I needed to order again I would go with cackle. When I spoke to them on the phone all three times they were helpful and friendly even after my order was placed and the chicks got here quick and alive. I realize that not all the time all the chicks are alive on arrival with any hatchery, but they were today and I'm glad. I worried so much. I was scared I would open the box and receive a nightmare like I've seen here a couple times. Now I just hope they stay healthy.
