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.
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent ducks you sent! I picked them up this morning and they were all perfectly healthy and alive...And got home to realize you sent an extra duck! Thank you!! I will most definitely be buying ducks from you next year and for years to come!
They are good looking ducklings and I can't wait to see how they grow out! Thank you all so much! A three day cross country (from CA to NC) with no losses speaks well of your care in raising healthy birds!!
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!
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.
Hi, I just wanted you to know that the ducks arrived at the post office as stated. There names are Donald and Daisy! We are so happy to have those little guys! I also want to take this time to Thank you...it was a pleasure doing business with you guys. It was such a smooth transaction, no worries at all.
I got the birds. They look very healthy. Say thank you to all your staff and keep doing a good job.
The geese are so attractive and useful. They eat grass like a sheep and are helping to keep the lawn trim. When the ducks and the geese are out, one goose is always watching just like Canada geese in the wild do.
I wanted to say thank you to your farm. I have ordered, hatched, and raised from numerous placed including hatching and raising my own birds. Most companies are all about getting paid and no customer service or gratitude to the customer. Your farm is the opposite of most places and I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for animals you have.
I got my ducks on April 18th and they have provided me so much joy and a lot of entertainment. They are all such good quality and you guys have helped me so much for a first time duck owner!
Hello!! I wanted to send a message letting you know 2 of our Khaki Campbell ducklings arrived today in perfect condition! Thank you so much!!! They are precious as can be and will make a wonderful addition to our tiny flock.
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!!
The ducklings arrived early this morning, the post office let me come to the back door at 7:30am! They seem totally healthy and very lively. Thank you so much! I'll be sure to recommend you in the future.
I received my replacement ducklings yesterday. They are doing great. So are the ducklings that arrived last week (as well as the gosling). I love them! We have cuddle time twice a day. Thank you again for not only the quality of the birds you raise, but the quality of your company in general. Your company came highly recommended - and I will do my part in recommending you also.
I just wanted to say I ordered fertile duck eggs from your farm - they are all fertile. I am very happy with the eggs the farm sent me. I will tell others about how great the farm is.
I ordered a duckling and gosling..I really need a goose to hang out with my ducks at home. I would have purchased more, but it's really tight with fulough. Thank you people so much for continuing your business yet again!
