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.
Thank you all for your patience and kind replies. My husband has been anxious about them traveling. They all made it here alive.
I am in Anna, Texas and this was my first order with Metzer. My ducklings arrived early yesterday morning. They were all accounted for without a loss. I am pleased with my experience! I look forward to making future orders with Metzer Farms. I have spread the word about your family farm and will continue to do so!
WOW!!! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!! My ducklings arrived, way quicker than expected, all very healthy ducklings, eating, drinking and playing with their new one week old Cayuga siblings! Thank you so much, again, you guys are AWESOME!!
Thank you for the very prompt service. We love Metzer Farms for quality of your ducks and geese and now for the outstanding service as well.
Thanks Alexa, Ashley & the Metzer Farms crew! My dozen Harlequins arrived this AM safe and sound, and are LOVING their new home! You ARE the BEST!!!
Tremendous experience overall and foresee us ordering again. Keep up the great work!
Thank you guys for all your help and patience with all my questions last week. It goes a long way to show me that us small family farms are just as important to you as the big guys.
I have never left a review before with any business but we are so happy with our baby ducks that I just had to this time. We are madly in love with our new family members! Lol. Our ducks are so healthy, sweet and precious. They have brought so much joy to us I just had to say THANK YOU!!
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..
Thank you for the job well done!!! I will be certain to share my experience with others around here.
Thanks. The ducks arrived in very good condition. The heat pad & extra green gel really helped. With priority express mail received in a little under 2 days.
If I ever need to order birds in the future, Metzer Farms will be the first place I look. I'll be sure to send my friends also!
Just a note to say thanks for the 24 Muscovy ducks. They all arrived healthy and very active.
My Grandson's ducklings arrived happy, healthy and warm, thanks to the heat pack. Can't wait until he is able to show them at the fair!
They traveled well and they have made mine and my family's lives even better. I will recommend you to everyone and I will praise your company's name every chance I get. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
