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, you guys are always a class-operation.
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.
My geese arrived promptly at 6:13am at my post office and they are all in perfect condition. I was surprised at how active compared to chickens they are at only three days old. They immediately started foraging as soon as I took them out of the box and were eager to be hand fed. This was a great experience and I'm already looking forward to future orders.
I love my babies from Metzer. All ten are doing great. They're gorgeous, healthy, and much better all around than the ducks I ordered from a different hatchery on a prior occasion. I will always order from Metzer Farms from now on.
Our absolute favorite duck for small scale duck egg production is the White Layer that we purchase from Metzers. We have only had wonderful experiences ordering from you all, thank you.
Hello, I just called you to tell you how great you are. The ducks are in fine condition and have doubled their size in a week. Out of 5 stars I'm giving you 6.
Ordered 2 female ducklings and they arrived safe and sound. Will be ordering from you if I need anymore in the future.
We received our Cayuga ducklings yesterday and they are so amazingly perfect...my goodness. I swore I wasn't adding any birds this year....but their perfection had me setting up my brooder last night!
Thank you for helping us. I am truly grateful for you expertise and service after sale!
Thank you, Kelly and all the Metzer Farms for our happy and healthy ducklings that just arrived! Everyone was eager to stretch their legs after the trip:) The Cayugas are just beautiful. The Pekins are very friendly. And the Khaki Campbells are quite sprite and playful already!
I just wanted to say "Thank you" to Metzer Farms for outstanding customer service! You have a customer for life and I will be returning to purchase all my eggs from you in the future! Have a Great Day!
Thank you so much for my replacement ducklings. They arrived this morning happy and healthy. I gave you a 5 star review and will refer anyone looking for ducklings in the future to ya'll.
I ordered some Pekin ducklings that shipped on March 2. I want to let you know that they arrived in perfect condition and started eating and drinking immediately! Now they are happy healthy babies with ravenous appetites.
My geese arrived to my farm in Ky. on the last date you said they would almost a month ago. All of them were strong and healthy, not a weak one in the bunch. I am thankful that you have such a wonderful service and geese. If asked. I will highly recommend you and I will definitely order from you again.
All four babies arrived looking well and are already figuring out their new surroundings. Thank you so much! I've hatched and raised Silver Applyards before and they have been by far and away my absolute favorite breed, so I'm excited to watch these little ladies grow!
