As always, the babies arrived perfectly with sweet smelling hay and lots of energy! Thank you so much!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

Thank you very much for being a pleasure to work with. My ducklings arrived Wednesday morning, just as you said, all healthy but jetlagged - ready for a brooder and a good meal. I wanted to thank you for excellent customer service from Kelly, who I had the pleasure of speaking with a couple times. She was very reassuring to me. Keep doing what you are doing!
Maureen From Madison, WI

I ordered 20 chickens and 15 ducklings that were delivered today. All of my birds arrived alive and in very good shape! I could not be more happy or impressed with by the service and quality of Metzer Farms! This is certainly where I will place all future orders.
Robert From Ridgeway, SC

The Appleyards keep up a pretty constant chatter, just wish we knew about what! Usually one leads off with a really loud, Groucho Marx sound, then there is a chorus of quacking until they all get it out of their system for a few minutes. Also there is almost constant head bobbing, which we've read can be flirting or a sign of happiness. They keep all the fruit trees and grape vines well pruned at least a few inches about their heads.
Pam From Aurora, OR

My first ducks were 2 Blue Swedes, 2 Cayugas, and 4 Golden 300s I purchased while I was in college at UC Santa Cruz and picked up at the farm. They were lovely birds and you were lovely people, and seeing your facility and pasture then has stayed with me as an image of what a great hatchery should be.
Elena From Lafayette, CO

All of my ducks including the original Trouble and Mischief who started the whole Live Ducks phenomenon came from Metzer. I had the honor of touring John's farm a few year's back (photos on Live Ducks). It is a top notch place and the warmest people you'll meet.

Metzer Farms has always provided exceptional service and quality birds to us, with much concern and fore thought about the health and well being of their precious babies.
Michael From Dallas, TX

If every American business offered the quality of products and customer service that you do, we wouldn't be buying so much from overseas and the US would be the great country like it used to be.
Ed From Eden, NY

I wrote a while back about the 7 eggs I got from you that were all fertile. Well 6 of the 7 hatched (woot woot!) They are all healthy and strong at 2 days old. Thank you so much!
Jennifer From

All the ducklings and goslings you arrived in great shape and alive. they have remained alive and full of energy and interest in their world.
Mary From Aztec, NM

Our ducks arrived a few days ago. Because we live in Alaska, they had been in transit for over a day. They arrived healthy and a little frantic (which I took as a sign of outstanding intelligence). I was worried that the fate of 4, one day old ducks, when sent on a cross continental postal odyssey, would not be a good one. But Helga, Belinda, Gwendolyn and Beeky are doing great. Thanks so much.
Vanessa From Anchorage,AK

We received our 7 little Indian Runner ducks. They arrived in great health and are doing awesome! I will recommend y'all to anyone looking for ducks or geese.
Chuck From Nada, TX

Tim From Sacramento, CA

Thank you so much for the awesome birds. You have amazing customer service and I'm so thrilled with my two new additions to my flock. They are both healthy and quaking. Again thank you so much.
Amy From Big Bear Lake, CA

We have been customers of Metzer Farms for a few years now and just wanted to tell you that we were very excited to see that all of the 100 Cornish Cross and 130 Grimaud Hybrid arrived this am in very good condition. We appreciate you taking the extra steps to insulate the boxes. It was 1 degree F this am here. Thank you!
Jason From Putney, VT

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my fax of 4/14/09. The quickness of your response along with the detail of explanation shows a dedication to customer satisfaction seldom seen these days. My compliments again to your customer service staff. I am new to this and they have been informative, patient, and extremely helpful every time I have called.
Ken From Lawtons, NY

I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain. More than anything, your advice game me confidence about raising my goslings, calming, helpful and kind people like you are wonderful. Ashley, you are a blessing for "newbies" like myself.
