    That sucks, what kind of birds did you order if I may ask? I have some replacement chicks getting shipped from them on monday but they are an assortment so no idea what I will get.

    That stinks! I got my order from them back at the start of the month, and mine actually came a day early. I wonder if the EE were the reason for the delay- when I talked on the phone with Cackle, they told me to drop the EE's and I'd get my shipment months earlier.

    Interesting about the EE's and Cackle. I ordered from ChickensforBackyards.com and I'm pretty sure they are using Cackle for my order. I only ordered one EE but CFB.com hasn't even been able to confirm a ship date yet! Now seeing these delays with Cackle Im even more convinced they are using the same hatchery. I ordered three weeks ago and they still have no idea when it will ship?!

    I will call them Monday and maybe if I drop the EE and get another Brahma I will get it sooner. Thanks for the tip! [​IMG]

    Well I don't think that there is anything to worry about, they were nice enough to call in advance and were very apologetic, it is just that we were all excited for a Monday shipment.

    I have had good service from them. If I remember right they may have been hit by the snow storm. That may account for part of the delay. I know a couple of the Lt. Brahmas I got off of them went to show and placed.(after I sold them)
