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'm beyond pleased with my order and will recommend you guys to everyone! I will be ordering some goslings from y'all next :-)
I just wanted to let you know our three beautiful ducklings arrived this morning. They are doing fantastic! We are very pleased!
Everybody is doing just fine. Just wanted to thank you for the great, responsive service-and the beautiful Welsh Harelquin ducklings.
The average live weight of the 200 ducklings we market is over eight pounds at seven weeks.
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!!
Just wanted to let you know 10 out of 11 Mallard eggs hatched. It's amazing that I got this great hatch rate with shipping eggs from CA to FL.
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.
I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the trouble that you put up with in dealing with me. You guys were great to work with and I have nothing but great things to say about Kelly and Ashley and how helpful you two were...
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for our three Khaki Campbell girls that you mailed to us June 9th! They are happy Boise, Idahoan ducks now and we love them so much! Thank you for every step of the process and how professional and helpful you allowed this process to be for our family. We would not hesitate to refer someone to your farm, thank you so much again!
The book i ordered on raising geese arrived today...just two days after ordering!! If this order were on eBay, your feedback from me woudl be five stars!!
Just wanted to say thank you!! I received my babies this morning and they are all doing great!
Not that it will surprise you, I'm sure, but every one of the ducklings made the trip no problem. They are vigorous and beautiful and I could not be more pleased! All are eating and drinking and seem very happy to be out of the box.
Talk soon, and THANKS!
Thank you so much for making such an extended effort to find a new way for us to receive your ducks this year. Your ducks always do well at our County Fair for my sons and they do so enjoy them! We so appreciate working with you! Thanks again!
Thank you so much for the ducklings. All arrived well and they are happy. The crests look really good.
I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future.
