What's with these Golden 300 Hybrid Layers? It's the dead of a Maine winter. Gets dark before 4 in the afternoon. And we are still getting six to eight eggs a day from eight ducks! These girls don't want to quit. I keep talking these girls up to people who ask about ducks for eggs.

Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them.

The female Khaki Campbell started laying exactly on Thanksgiving Day. Fast forward to today and we are now 237 laying days out from that first egg and she has only missed FIVE days of laying an egg. 232 eggs in her first 237 laying days. Great line of Khaki Campbell girls, Metzers!!

Thank you so much, I received my small order of four baby ducks on Tuesday. They are all eating and drinking and are so cute, what great service! Perfect for the small flock family. Next time will be some Runner ducks

I would like to thank you again for your patience with us prior to our order being shipped. As you know, this was our first time ordering ducks (or any kind of animal through the mail for that matter). Everything your website states is true! The babies arrived safe and healthy. They are absolutely beautiful. We would, will and are recommending you to anyone who will listen to us! This was truly a wonderful experience.
Pam & Gary From Phoenix, AZ

We received our ducklings from you all yesterday and they arrived in wonderful shape. This is the first time we have ordered live birds and we are extremely pleased. Whenever we need live birds again we know where to come. Thanks so much!

We are so thankful to have had such great experience in watching our geese grow. It has been such a joy! They are well and happy..my husband and I raised two great guys. We settled down a bit now and this has just been such joy to us!!
Nancy From Roanoke, AL

Just for the record, John Metzer and staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and the birds....through the years! are very fine quality, at least in my experience. These days it's rare to find such a great customer service!
Michael From Mabank, TX

I received my three little ducklings Wednesday and they were in perfect condition and in great health. I would recommend you to anyone planning on getting baby birds. Again thank you for our little Buttercup, Coco and Gypsy.
Sean From Bremerton, WA

Just to let you know my order arrived this morning and all baby ducks are alive and active, trying to jump out of the box when opened. Thanks so very much from over very satisfied customer!
Dawn From New Iberia, LA

I just received the blown eggs I ordered yesterday. I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated the care you took in the packing of the eggshells. It has been a while since I've ordered any shells to work on and, honestly, I have some bad memories of how most orders were packaged. Thank you so much for setting such a high standard and when I do need more eggshells, I will be contacting you again.

Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office.
Kristin From Royal, IA

Our daughters will be showing at the fair this next fall and I know with this flock they will place well. Hope to deal with you again as we continue to expand our flock.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

I will definitely let all my followers on FB who follow my ducks know what a wonderful hatchery you all are! Thank you for sending me hope. We could all use a little hope, even if it's in the form of an egg.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

We received our baby ducks yesterday. They arrived on time and are so cute and adorable. Every one of them are active. As soon as we opened up the box, they tried to jump out. These ducks bring bundles of joy to us. Thank you so much and if we need more ducks, we will order from you guys.
Jennifer From Lakewood, CO

Thank you again so much for the beautiful birds. We really appreciate the quality of birds.
Carmen From Montreal, Canada

Been wanting to write and let you know the ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.
