Metzer Farms emphasizes the breeding and hatching of
quality Pekin ducklings for our customers that grow Pekin ducks
for commercial meat production. We hatch every Monday throughout
the year for these customers. Whether you need 100 or 4000, we
should be able to meet your needs. Some customers get ducklings
every week, others get them every two or four weeks. We can work
around your needs.
If you place at least six orders with each order being no more than one month apart, we will charge you the next lower quantity price.
You order 200 Grimaud Hybrid every two weeks for six months. Instead of paying the 200 price, you would be paying the 300-749 price.
The main strain we use is the Grimaud Hybrid, a large, fast
growing Pekin duck. We have tried a variety of Pekin strains
in the past and continue trying new strains of Pekin duck, but
the Grimaud Hybrid is the best to date. We have imported breeding
stock from Grimaud Freres, an international poultry breeding
company in France, since 2000. If you visit their site (www.grimaudfreres.com), our Grimaud
Hybrid is the same as their Star 53.
Grimaud Hybrid ducklings are pure Pekin ducks. They are listed
as hybrid as a male from a large, fast growing Pekin strain is
crossed with a female from a high egg production Pekin strain
to produce the hybrid ducklings we sell you. They will reproduce
if you use the ducklings we supply you as breeders. They wont
lay as many eggs and there will be less hybrid vigor, but they
will produce fertile eggs.
We will send you a Commercial Duck Management Guide with your
first order of 120 or more ducklings just ask for it when
you place your order.
