We have Cackle and Privett chickens. Health wise there's no complaints. For the most part they are laying and doing what they should do. They look like their breeds, I'm sure just hatchery quality but that's all we are looking for. Temperaments (minus one rooster who no longer resides here...) they are all pretty good. The Privett chicks have always been more standoffish, we blame ourselves for not handling them as much as our first group. All in all, no complaints BUT... THEY ARE SHRIMPY! Seriously, if other chickens ever saw our chickens, they would laugh at them. We didn't really notice it until we went to visit our local FFA and saw their chickens. It's like comparing Chihuahua's to Great Danes...seriously. Their silky was the size of our standard girls. We are feeding them the same feed they use. The only difference is we did let ours free range once old enough (but still fed them). Could it be that they are hatchery stock? Could the free ranging played a factor? It doesn't matter once it's all said and done, we aren't that worried about it but I was wondering if there's really that much difference between hatchery stock and private breeding. My husband said something about trying to get a few of their chickens but we can have 2 for every 1 of theirs space wise!
