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 let you know we received our ducks last Wednesday morning and could not be more pleased. They both just love to snuggle, it made it very hard to give them away. I am having duck withdrawls. But they made the perfect gift for my nephews 30th birthday and house warming party. They were the hit of the party!
Just to let you know the two Tufted Buff geese arrived today in perfect health, cheeky and plump. Thank you!
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!
Many, many thanks for the wonderful, amazing and outstanding geese. I adore them! They are the most personable geese I've ever been around.
On March 11th I received replacement Guineas which were all very much alive and well. I would like to thank Ashley and everyone at Metzer Farms for what turned out to be a very positive experience.
Just wanted to let you know my three Toulouse goslings arrived this morning. So cute and seem healthy and happy!
Also thank you for such a quick response, you are by far one of the best agricultural companies that I have ever dealt with.
Thanks so very much. Getting excited about my babies coming. Have heard wonderful comments from folks about your stock.
I'm just a very small customer who is totally satisfied, reporting on your ducks' progress! The ducklings are wonderful, big, healthy and glowing with energy. Thanks again - as the conversation swirling around your ducklings at the clinic confirmed, one gets the best from the best so... You're the best!
Kudos on being able to successfully ship Muscovy across the Country!
We just wanted to let you know how excited we are to try our hand at ducks! We visited several hatchery sites but we heard only good things about your farm and decide to place our first duck order with you. Thank you all for the great info contained in your site and we will be waiting anxiously for April!
We just wanted to let you know that we received our two Welsh Harlequin babies yesterday and they are doing wonderful. This is the first time we have bought and owned ducks and we are very satisfied with your service.
We have had our ducklings for 12 days now and what a joy they are!! Thank you soooo much!!
Just wanted to say that all 7 feathered friends arrived in excellent condition yesterday! Very pleased! The goslings are darlings... Nice job! You have one very happy customer!
Good morning, [I'm] just letting you know that the order arrived all for baby female Peking ducks were in great shape. They’re now in the hatchery, got heat lamp on, they’re eating well, drinking well, and I’m so pleased with your performance... I’ll let everybody know that I know. Again thank you very much and the birds are all GOOD.
