    good stock and healthy

    I don't know about their Delewares, but the chickens I get from them are usually nice and lay well. Don't expect breeder quality birds, because you won't get them. But you will get good, healthy chicks that will be good for eggs and meat.

    My boyfriend got his first batch from cackle. They are located only an hour away. I've heard nothing but fantastic reviews from everyone I know that ordered from them. They are usually in fantastic health, and I've usually heard that nobody really loses more than one chick.
