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

We want to let you know how pleased we are with our ducks, 4 Runners and 2 Welsh Harlequins. We received them on April 30, and they have been going strong ever since. We have had no problems at all and enjoy them every day. Right now they are averaging 5 eggs per day.

Dolores From Cashmere, WA

Thank you so much for your quick response and also for answering quite a few questions of mine about incubating. I will definitely order from you again!
Robin From Pantego, NC

Everyone loves duck eggs here, especially the duck hunters. Everyone should know by now that some of the more famous bakeries use duck eggs and if you want a good holandaise sauce, there's no other egg that compares.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

Thank you for our ducks! They are beautiful, healthy and very entertaining!!
Chrystin From Rochester, NH

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.

I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain. More than anything, your advice game me confidence about raising my goslings, calming, helpful and kind people like you are wonderful. Ashley, you are a blessing for "newbies" like myself.
Vicki From Rock Island, TX

We LOVE our geese, and were very happy with the way they arrived. It was our first experience in having birds shipped and I was more than a little nervous. I promise to contact you at the end of the year.
Vicki From Waters, MI

Ducks arrived this morning at 6:45 and they are adorable. I have to admit I was skeptical about mail ordering ducks, but the whole thing went off without a hitch! They are a nice addition to our growing urban flock:-) Thank you!
Michele From Topeka, KS

just a quick "Thank you" for our order of ducklings. The post office called dark and early at 4:45 am, and we went to pick them up. Everyone seems healthy, and they're all eating and drinking well. Thank you so much, and I hope to work with you again!
Lorraine From Winchester, KY

The rest of the ducklings and geese we got on April 14th are thriving. They're getting so big we need to move them to a larger pen today. I figured it would take 3-4 weeks for them to get this big since birds from other hatcheries took that long. Definitely some quality birds. Thanking you with gratitude.
Ed From Eden,NY

I was so pleased at how healthy and lively they were after their trip. I did have you add the grow gel to the package which was all gone when they arrived and I think it makes all the difference in the world for them to have while they are in transit.
Rachel From Blandsville, IL

Received my replacement Buff goslings today, all is well. Many thanks to you all again! I recommend you guys to everyone who has complimented our birds!
Angela From Oakdale, LA

I placed an order with you guys and received my ducklings this morning. Thank you so much for getting them to me so soon I love them they are adorable.
Elsa From Pittsburg, CA

Just like last year, 100% of the eggs you sent were fertile. I'm thrilled every Blue Runner hatched, and 7 out of 10 Golden 300's. I witnessed some very rough handling but your excellent way of packaging saved them all. The ducklings are all strong and perfect.
Leslie From Oklahoma City,OK

They were wonderful with info and patience when trying to figure out regarding another mate for Hamilton...not like Metzer Farms didn't have other important things to do. I even drove down after work to pick up ElizaRose they set aside for me.
Eileen From Mountain View, CA

The ducklings arrived in excellent condition. Thank you very much for all you have done for me. I can't say thank you enough. From time to time I will let you know of their progress.
Allan From Chilliwack, BC

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

I wanted to take the time out to thank you for our recent purchase. I am a second grade teacher in the Bronx and I ordered 16 fertile eggs from you 2 months ago. I am SO pleased to tell you that out of the 17 eggs that you sent, ALL 17 were fertile and 16 hatched!!
