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.
We wanted to tell you the good news!! We have 12 babies from your eggs!! The children got to see them hatch, which was AMAZING!! They are so precious! Thank you for all of the advice and help along the way. We will definitely be ordering again another year!
They arrived today! Here's a big THANK YOU! from the kids. They are excited!
The ducklings arrived this morning and all appear to be in great shape. Thank you so much. You folks rock!
Just wanted you to know that my two baby Welsh Harlequins arrived in Butler, PA today and they are perfect! So adorable, and so cuddly. Thank you!
I love my Golden 300 and tell everyone I know about these wonderful hens. At $12 a dozen, each egg is a dollar. It makes me feel like I own Golden ducks who lay dollar bills for my family to enjoy.
The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
The White Layers I bought earlier this year are fantastic layers! They began to lay just when you said they would and are still laying strongly after 6 months.
Than you for making this Birthday special. I see more ducks in the future.
I purchased 4 Khaki Campbell ducklings from Monroe Feed store, Monroe, WA and was told they were from your farm. Just thought I would mention they are very healthy robust ducklings. We look forward to these complimenting our home egg production project!!
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!
I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know my geese arrived this morning healthy, happy and ready to go! They are doing wonderfully and have the greatest little personalities! Thank you for my beautiful babies!
I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs. Only 1 perished on the trip and the rest seem happy, healthy and very vibrant. I am very thrilled! Thank you again for the wonderful ducklings!! All your help was greatly appreciated!!
I believe that the ducklings (including Feline) and goslings that we get at the farm store generally have originated from your farm, they have always been healthy we have never lost one to illness. Thank you.
I wanted to personally thank you for dealing with my order. The goslings arrived very alert and strong. They have been growing very nicely and I'm sure they are gonna become beautiful geese. I will definitely order from you in the future.
I wasn't sure where to leave a review for my order from your website and farm but I was so pleased with the ducks I bought I felt I had to let you know. I ordered 6 female Mallards and they arrived quickly and in great condition. Metzer Farms has great service and great ducks, and I'd definitely refer you guys to anyone and definitely will be ordering more ducklings and hatching eggs from your site.
