I received 5 duck eggs about a month ago. I followed your instructions on incubating duck eggs, I turned them 7 times in the beginning and then decreased as the days went on but always turned 3 times a day. So 28 days went by and all 5 ducks hatched! I even called your office during the hatching process and the staff always eager to help answer any questions I had.

When we first started thinking about ducklings, I wasn't sure where to order from. After seeing all the great reviews of you guys on Backyard Chickens, I went with my gut and ordered through you guys even though you were so far away. I am so glad I did:-)
Lisa From E Longmeadow, MA

The ducklings we purchased from you are so healthy and active, we are SUPER HAPPY! Thank you for such wonderful babies :-) We love them LOTS!

Great place for ducks, it's where I send everyone for ducks that call me, thanks John for your commitment to excellent ducks and great customer service.

My 3 year old son and I were so excited to pick up our ducks from the post office this am. As always the birds arrived safe and sound with their GROW GEL! The post office lady told me that ducks from another hatchery didn't make it and they had no food on their transport. I love your quality and super customer service and look forward to ordering from you every Summer!

I received my 6 new ducklings in perfect shape! They are all healthy and happy. Eating, sleeping and running around. I ordered Welsh Harlequin's. First time ordering from you and am very pleased.
Jackie From Big Sandy, TN

Just wanted to let you all know how happy we are with our ducklings! We ordered 2 Khaki Campbell females last week and they are a Joy! "Fenwick and Brown Sugar" are doing well...I really appreciate your service and will tell others about Metzer Farms.
Ashley From Smithfiled, PA

Loved the Golden 300 Hybrid from Metzer Farms. They were the first 3 ducks I got 10 years ago and they were all very personable, prolific layers and long lived.
Joanne From Shirley, MA

I just wanted to thank you for the excellent ducks you sent! I picked them up this morning and they were all perfectly healthy and alive...And got home to realize you sent an extra duck! Thank you!! I will most definitely be buying ducks from you next year and for years to come!
Jeff From Reno, NV

I just wanted to take a moment to email you guys and let you know that I am so happy with my decision to purchase hatching eggs from you. With a great deal of hesitation I ordered eggs and to my surprise candled all 11 eggs tonight and every single one had the beginning stages of a developing embryo.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

Thank you so much for making such an extended effort to find a new way for us to receive your ducks this year. Your ducks always do well at our County Fair for my sons and they do so enjoy them! We so appreciate working with you! Thanks again!
Pam From Victoria, KS

My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
Barbara From Enumclaw, WA

I'd like to say thank you for the wonderful ducklings. I piled them all on my lap when I got them home and they stayed there for maybe a minute and then they were off to the races. They are much friendlier and don't run from me like ducks I had ordered about 5 years ago from another hatchery did.
Leslie From

The baby goslings I received from you folks are doing great. Active, talkative and very alert. They are all, if not even more than what I expected. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to raise these heritage breeds. Keep up the great work.
Don From Farmington, ME

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

The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
Miriam From Mer Rouge, LA

All my ducklings arrived this morning safe and sound. Very vigorous babies! Thanks!
Vicki From Oakdale, CA

Ducks have arrived! Safe and sound. Thank you Ashley for reassuring me via our phone conversation. It is very warm here and I was frantic. Good job everyone!! They are wonderful!
Pamela From Acampo, CA

I received my pair each of Toulouse and Brown Chinese geese in early April. We have enjoyed every moment with them and are having fun watching their feathers come in and their confidence grow. I wanted to say thank you for the safe delivery of healthy birds, and all of the great advice and information your website provides. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for waterfowl!
