Waterfowl are in general by far the easiest type of poultry to raise.

Hello. Thank you for your excellent service. The ducks and geese arrived in great shape and they are still doing fine. The postal service did a good job delivering them. Thank you for the extra birds.
Michael From Danville, VA

I hatched 2 Mallard (hen & drake) and 3 Welsh Harlequins (2 hens & a drake) last May from eggs bought from you. They started laying on Thanksgiving and are producing 1 egg a day, including the little Mallard hen. We give many away to families who love them. Your ducks are first rate.
Milton From Hendrum, MN

I just want to let you know we received our babies yesterday! All of them are doing well and are so excited about this new adventure! Thanks so much for delivering beautiful and top quality birds! Can't wait to place an order with you again in the future.
BJ From Damon, TX

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

We have always been pleased with your product, how you do business, and I recommend your birds whenever I can.
Susan From Lincoln, CA

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. We couldn't believe how productive they are. We were getting 5 eggs a day through the coldest part of the year, when the chickens weren't laying as well. These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
DD From Wisconsin

I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am that I am dealing with honest people who sent me these eggs. I think it's important for you to know that you brought happiness to someone who has been struggling to find it due to a sickness that I can not control.
Wendy From Franklin, TN

I live in Florida and I got my Sebastopols from Metzer Farms and they have arrived great. I think Metzer Farms is a great hatchery to use, I have never had any problems ordering from them and my ducks and now geese always arrived safely.
Kim From Florida

Ducklings arrived early this morning and were very busy drinking and eating and they are now napping. They are beautiful, healthy and I'm very happy with them. Thank you very much.
Polly From High Falls, NY

These two geese you sent me are SO lively and healthy! I am excited to watch them grow. The post office called me at 5:30am and I bounded out of bed so fast! When I peeked in the box, they immediately came towards me, chattering away. I cannot get over how lively they are!
Christina From Cotati, CA

Thank you again for the info and for such lively and healthy ducklings and goslings. All I purchased from you arrived in top condition and have remained in great shape. If I decide to order ducklings or goslings in the future you will get my business because of your great service and quality birds.
Mary From Aztec, NM

I'm so impressed with y'all! I received my duck eggs two days after I ordered them. I just wanted to say thank you and that I'm really impressed!
Keilie From Carthage, NC

The Runners are used for herding and they are amazing to watch. They kind of flow like water and keep together like flocks of sparrows do when they fly only the Runners are on foot. I love them.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

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.

Derek From Rock Fall, IL

The goslings arrived today. They are beautiful, and very healthy. Healthy is the key! Customer service friendly, and knowledgeable. I would recommend your company to others. Thank you!

The Golden 300 Hybrid are every bit as good at foraging as Khaki Campbells, perhaps better. they remind me of that pack of Velociraptors in the movie Jurassic Park.
Joe From New Sharon, MA

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.
Lori From Norwalk, CT

I have been searching for goose eggs since leaving the Netherlands years ago. I am delighted. The eggs arrived in beautiful condition and will become my "canvas" for hand painted Christmas memories!
