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 for the very prompt service. We love Metzer Farms for quality of your ducks and geese and now for the outstanding service as well.
I would like to tell you that a Brown China hen that I bought from you has done very well for me. I took her to a show and out of twenty-two geese she took Reserve Grand Champion Goose. She took Champion Goose at a small show with only four geese and she took Champion Goose and Reserve Waterfowl at another. I plan on taking her to other shows in the fall to see how she does and I will let you know.
Hello I just wanted to give a huge thank you to Metzer Farms and staff. My four black female Swedish ducklings arrived this morning and are in great condition. They are all running around happy and healthy!
I appreciate your quickness and understand why this company was highly recommended. Thank you and have a good day.
I can't wait for the new additions to my little flock as everyone always compliments how beautiful and healthy the birds are. Nothing but good things to say about my experience with your company and the quality of the birds you produce!
We got them!! They all made it. The post office saw me in line before they opened and let me grab them. They are drinking and eating without issue and of course full of peeps! Thanks, they will be spoiled.
Letting you know that all three ducklings arrived safe and sound! They are very happy and healthy, love to cuddle. I have decided to name them Ingrid, Myrna, and Duke! Thank you so much for the ducklings! Much appreciated.
We received 27 beautiful healthy Khaki Campbells this morning. All are doing so well. Thank you from Tuscon!
I picked up my Runner ducklings at the post office, they are drinking and eating and so healthy! They were worth the wait. Will be purchasing through you again.
I just wanted you to know that we just completed the Provincial APA show and District International Waterfowl Breeders Show at the Coombs Fair in British Columbia. A young Pekin duck that I got from you this spring won the Show Champion. The judge was extremely impressed with all the birds in their composition. I have been competing for 5 years in the APA and this is the first time I have ever seen a standard duck place in either Show Champion or Reserve.
Birds arrived in great shape. Best delivery I have ever had. Thanks
Hey Metzer Farms Crew! My family and I wanted to say thank you again for the amazing Cayuga and Silver Appleyard ducks! They've grown out so nicely over the past few months and we even got our first few eggs about a week ago. The birds are truly stunning, especially the drake Silver Appleyard. He's a real head-turer and he knows it. The beetle green and purple hues on our Cayugas are beautiful as well. We proudly brag to all of our friends that ask that they're Metzer Farms ducks. Keep up the good work y'all! We're customers for life!
Just wanted to let you know the ducklings arrived this morning and all were well. They were eating and drinking almost immediately after I took them out of the box. Thank you for the nice selection and for the extra baby.
Every time I call and ask a question, you have been really helpful and very knowledgeable. My wife and I really appreciate what you're doing and always look forward to our order of ducks when they arrive. Thank you for a wonderful service.
Ducklings arrived safe and surprisingly very energetic. All are taking water and feed and getting used to their brooder. Thanks a bunch!
