    Welp. I was depressed after having a hard time getting silkies. So my hubby told me. "Order some chicks from a hatchery and just work your way up. Atlease that way you can have chickens you want and be happy." He hates seeing me depressed.

    I was going to raise me some polish ( along with silkies ) so I decided to get them from the hatchery since I was going to travel in June to see Bobbie on my way back home from Florida where I was going to spend some time with my mom. I will get my silkies from her, so no reason to buy those from a hatchery, I told myself.

    So I went to my favorite hatchery's site (Bought from them a lot in the past) which is Cackle Hatchery. They always have really good polish birds. While looking I decided to get some sultans too. I love them and they will help in a breeding project I have planned for the future.

    I got 10 of each and when they come in I will let everyone know and have lots of photos. [​IMG]

    Thing I love about Cackle hatchery is they dont charge you a whole lot of extra fees when you order. I paid $60 for these 20 birds. They will likely toss in a few extras as well. Maybe one or two. No matter how big your order is, as long as its less then 300 birds they will only charge $15 max for shipping. No incomplete box fee, no multible breeds fee, just shipping. And thats sweet imo.

    Cackle does look nice. The only reason I didn't order from them (almost all of my birds are top-hats this year) is because they don't sex them. I ordered three Polish, one Sultan, one Spitz, and a few other chicks from Meyer's, all girls. They are due to arrive on the 22nd.

    I have to agree. Out of 14 roosters I've dealt with in the last 2 years, my Sultan rooster was the only one I've ever loved. He was the sweetest thing. He passed away last December, sadly, and I still miss him loads. I also have a Polish hen and she is my favorite girl. I hatched her and her mate's (The Sultan's) daughter out last spring and she is also a love. Crested chicks are my all-time favorites. You won't be disappointed.
