I placed an order with you guys! I got 10 Mallards and one Sebastopol. They came in great shape yesterday and are doing great! Thanks for a pleasant ordering experience!
Anon From Wyandotte, MI

After a little panicking, I got a call on day 3 that my babies were here! I was expecting some losses...but when I peeled back the lid..I had 10 unhappy (who wouldn't be after that trip) but healthy ducklings squinting into the light! We got home and they got settled into their brooder, started drinking right away and are running around, happy to be done with their travels!

Well John, you won me over. I've had my Golden 300 Hybrids since April and am in love with them. For a while, all 19 ducks were laying an egg a day. With the shorter days, I'm down to 13-15 eggs per day without any extra lighting.
Joyce From Enumclaw, WA

Our ducks arrived a few days ago. Because we live in Alaska, they had been in transit for over a day. They arrived healthy and a little frantic (which I took as a sign of outstanding intelligence). I was worried that the fate of 4, one day old ducks, when sent on a cross continental postal odyssey, would not be a good one. But Helga, Belinda, Gwendolyn and Beeky are doing great. Thanks so much.

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.

We picked up our baby Rouen's this morning from the post office!! 12 happy and healthy babies!! Thank you so much!!
David From Demopolis, AL

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

I just picked up ten Khaki Campbell ducklings from the post office and am now sharing them with my fourth grade class. They are all healthy, beautiful, and climbing on top of each other. Thank you all for taking great care in hatching and shipping them safely.

First I will tell you that we bought a dozen birds - received on 5/25 (hatch date 5/23). They are beautiful and healthy. You are doing a great job and I was very happy with the birds we bought and also how we were treated by Metzer.

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

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.
Joe From New Sharon, ME

Just wanted to say thank you for my beautiful ducklings! You all did an amazing job packing them up to handle their journey. All six made it all the way to Massachusetts in great shape.
