Welcome to Metzer Farms. We are a family-owned farm and hatchery that has been in business since 1972. We control all aspects of nutrition, breeding, selection, incubation, and hatching to ensure you the highest quality of day-old birds.
We specialize in waterfowl, hatching 19 breeds of ducks (Pekin, Jumbo Pekin, Mallard, Rouen, Khaki Campbell, Blue Swedish, Black Swedish, Buff, Cayuga, Welsh Harlequin, White Crested, Fawn & White Runner, Black Runner, Blue Runner, Chocolate Runner, Saxony, Silver Appleyard, Golden 300 Hybrid, and White Layer) and 16 breeds of geese (Embden, Toulouse, Buff Toulouse, White Chinese, Brown Chinese, Pilgrim, Buff, Tufted Buff, African, Super African, French Toulouse, Large Dewlap Toulouse, Sebastopol, Roman Tufted, Classic Roman, Tufted Toulouse). We also hatch French Pearl Guineas and Ringneck Pheasants,
as well as three strains of meat chickens (Cornish Cross, Rolin S, and Big Sur).
It is easy for you to enjoy the thrill of raising a baby duckling or gosling into adulthood. Our minimum order quantity is two ducklings or goslings so you do not have to raise more birds than you want. We also hatch ducks year round. Whereas most hatcheries stop hatching in June or July, we hatch Pekin and Mallard year round and our other breeds of ducks from February through early December. The season for the geese, guineas, and pheasants is in the spring and early summer. Our chickens are hatched year round for those of you wanting to grow chickens commercially for your local restaurants or farmers' markets.
HI-the ducklings are in their new home in Simi Valley and are doing great! It has been a big day for them and every so often I see them taking a little nap. If I hear of anyone wanting to buy or raise ducklings, I am referring you. Again-thank you!

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.

We recently ordered 5 ducklings from you. You shipped on August 10th and they arrived in Sioux Falls, SD on the evening of the 11th! Our distribution center called us and we picked up 5 healthy ducklings. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
