All of my ducks including the original Trouble and Mischief who started the whole Live Ducks phenomenon came from Metzer. I had the honor of touring John's farm a few year's back (photos on Live Ducks). It is a top notch place and the warmest people you'll meet.

Knowing exactly what dates our ducks would be hatching and then shipped made the ordering process the most seamless I've ever done with any business. It truly was a pleasure doing business with the Metzer Farm Family and I look forward to doing business with you again.
Michelle From Norfolk, NE

I recently ordered duck eggs from your company and was a little worried. Rest assured you went above and beyond my expectations! I ordered 16 assorted duck eggs. Of those 16, 10 hatched.
Steven From Fredericksburg, PA

For all intents and purposes, Metzer Farms waterfowl is superior to all the other large hatcheries in the USA.
From West Virginia

I live on a small farm, in West Virginia, and I'm very pleased with the quality of birds Metzer Farms provides. I've purchased several geese from Metzer Farms and they are all very healthy birds.

I received my ducklings las Wednesday. They all (3 Buff and 5 Runner ducks) arrived in great shape-strong, alert and active. Thank you for providing such wonderful and entertaining little ducks.
Suzette From Casa Grande, AZ

This order arrived today in perfect shape. The eggs are magnificent. I can hardly wait to turn these beauties into lace! You made my day.
Beth From Bishop Hill, IL

The average live weight of the 200 ducklings we market is over eight pounds at seven weeks.
Jim From Mt Pleasant Mills, PA

We wanted to tell you the good news!! We have 12 babies from your eggs!! The children got to see them hatch, which was AMAZING!! They are so precious! Thank you for all of the advice and help along the way. We will definitely be ordering again another year!
Jennifer & Tammy From Lake Mary, FL

Goose and Gander are also very nice birds to live with while Gander is more protective. Goose will approach and sit with me and Gander will also reluctantly settle close to you but he takes his job of guard very seriously.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

They're great! I received my 10 little Welsh Harlequin ducklings yesterday morning. They were thirsty and hungry, but robust. I was worried about them yet they traveled well for newborns! They seem to be getting on really well. Thank you for making this easy!
Catherine From Fort Atkinson, WI

I bought 28 Golden 300 female ducklings on May 17 last year. They are wonderful layers...this past week I picked up 103 eggs from the past 105 duck-days (15 ducks X 7 days). I'm impressed!
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

Just letting you know that the pair of Sebastopol goslings arrived here in Hawaii in EXCELLENT condition! They were bright eyed, alert, and talkative...and ooh, are they so adorable - even the animal quarantine office staff at the airport thought so! Thank you for your excellent customer service and follow through on permit papers with the state of Hawaii, and securing a flight. Thank you, John, and to everyone else involved with the hatching and shipping process of the goslings. Your business is #1!
Mahola, Lynne From Honolulu, HI

I was given 5 White Crested ducklings a friend of mine purchased from you. Owen, my only White Crested drake, won Reserve Champion Overall Waterfowl, and the females were first through fourth in the same class, they also won the best flock of waterfowl in the county! I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl.
Corey From Frederick County, MD

I just processed my ducks at 7 weeks and one day. They look awesome! The weights were way beyond my expectations. There were hardly a hand full of pins. I have tried different Pekins each year that I have raised pastured poultry and these are the first ones to grow off this well. Thanks- I'll be ordering more!
Leann From Greenwood, MS

Hello, didn't know if you had a place to write any reviews about your service, but I was a first time buyer from Iowa and your shipping was amazingly fast and the packaging was extremely well thought of for shipping hatching eggs. All were in excellent shape. And had 100% fertile rate. Keep up the good work!!
Nick From Lehigh, IA

The geese are here to help prevent raven attacks on the ducks and the three of us act like a well-oiled machine. They warn me of raven presence, I run and chase them off and we all three yell at the raven. We have had no attacks on any duck since the geese went outside.
Elizabeth From Grand Portage, MN

Steven From Fredericksburg, PA

My two goslings and 8 ducklings arrived at my post office this morning, much to the entertainment of the PO staff. They arrived chirping, thirsty and ready to eat. They all look great and are frisky.
Suzy From Lyle, WA

I am taking the time to let you know I am pleased with your service, great prices, and organization. I love how when the post office messes something up with my order, you take responsibility and make it right by replacing or refunding any birds that did not make it.
