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!!
Bobby From Punta Gorda, FL

I am most impressed. Of the many shipments of chicks, ducklings, and guineas from other hatcheries and breeders, yours by far, has shown the most concern over the shipping care of the little birds.
Juanita From Nokesville, VA

You really can't compare the taste of a Pekin with that of a slimy river duck...your ducks are the best and healthiest of all including my own hatch.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

Earlier this year we ordered four Black Runners, four Blue Swedes, and a pair of Pilgrim geese. I'm writing to tell you that they have been big hits at our educational farm. All are healthy and have the liberty of a large fenced pasture with our sheep. Thanks for the informative article and the beautiful birds
Ed From Easton

I just wanted you to know that we just completed the Provincial APA show and District International Waterfowl Breeders Show at the Coombs Fair in British Columbia. A young Pekin duck that I got from you this spring won the Show Champion. The judge was extremely impressed with all the birds in their composition. I have been competing for 5 years in the APA and this is the first time I have ever seen a standard duck place in either Show Champion or Reserve.
Suzin From Blaine, WA

I wanted to thank you for all your help and for answering my email questions quickly. Since this was my first time incubating eggs, I was a bit nervous to do it incorrectly. Of the 11 eggs you sent me, one was infertile and two quit within the first three days of incubation. All of the rest hatched wonderfully over a three day period and the babies are doing great!
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

Babies arrived this morning alive and full of spirit. They are beautiful and I do so appreciate the above and beyond service you went to to make up the lost babies from my original order. I will be telling all my friends about you and will only buy from you from now on.
Garland From Brodhead, KY

Thank you so much for packaging them with natural hay in the bottom and the large cups of grow gel. They all look healthy and energetic. Thank you also for the excellent customer service. We are very, very pleased with our experience with Metzer and will give you a favorable review.
Clint & Wendy From Hayes, VA

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.
Lori From

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 recently ordered some goose and duck eggs from you and would like you to know they arrived perfectly intact and looked beautiful. I am in the process of writing an egg decorating craft book and wanted to let you know that I will be listing you as one of the best suppliers of eggs.
Maya From Lantana, FL

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.
James From Marietta, GA

We just have to thank you again for the geese we ordered this morning! Dave Anderson, poultry judge and our good neighbor, said many good things about you folks - so we just had to bring your birds to our home!
Regina From

Thank you so much for all of your kindness and help. I'm taking measures now to test and fix the incubator. Thank you for everything.
Alice From Kalispell, MT

We got our baby Welsh Harlequin ducks, Buff geese, and Buff duck this morning at the Lynden post office. they arrived in perfect shape, all bright eyed and bushy tailed. What a happy bunch! Thank for another group of quality ducks and geese..
Herb & Marylinn From Lynden, WA

Thank you very much for being a pleasure to work with. My ducklings arrived Wednesday morning, just as you said, all healthy but jetlagged - ready for a brooder and a good meal. I wanted to thank you for excellent customer service from Kelly, who I had the pleasure of speaking with a couple times. She was very reassuring to me. Keep doing what you are doing!
Maureen From Madison, WI

My wife and I have ordered ducks from you every year since 2005. We have been extremely happy with our ducks that we have ordered from you. They are the best and always turn out to be happy and friendly ducks with lots of personality.
Herb From Lynden, WA

We received your Mallard duckling shipment this morning, they look great and I would like to thank you. We appreciate your care and consistency in all that you do.

Babies arrived this morning alive and full of spirit. They are beautiful and I do so appreciate the above and beyond service you went to to make up the lost babies from my original order. I will be telling all my friends about you and will only buy from you from now on.
