So happy we found Metzer Farms
I researched forever before deciding to order from Metzer Farms. I was very worried about the ducklings arriving DOA but took the chance. My babies were born and sent the same day. They arrived to us two days later and all 12 were healthy and have continued to thrive! We are in love with each one of them! Will definitely not hesitate to order again in the future!

A Great Experience
We ordered the runner and buff-females, one passed away in transit, however, when I contacted Metzer Farms they shipped out another female buff and a mixed duckling-free of charge. Both arrived safe and sound. All the ducklings are doing well, good appetites and very active. Thank you so much Metzer Farms!!!

We purchased two African Geese goslings, and this was our first time ordering live animals. I was impressed how well the babies did traveling. They were happy, and very spunky when they arrived. We've had them almost a week now, and they are triving!!! Thank you for your dedication to providing healthy animals!

I love these sweet fluff balls!
I received my beautiful babies early this morning at the Sarver, Pa Post Office. They all arrived in excellent condition. One box coming from the Metzer Farm in Ca. and the other from the Metzer Hatchery in Tenn. Duck parenting is new to me. I was a bit hesitant to order ducks through the Mail but my experience was great. After much research and reading many customer reviews Metzer was the place to order my ducks. The Blog on their web site has been very helpful to me. I look forward to watching these fluff balls grown into beautiful birds with interesting personalities. Thank you Metzer Farm!!

I bought geese for my Mom
When I started looking I was Ilooking because .y MO. Wanted a goose so badly. She had been wanting one every since someone going down the rd hit a bump and the ladies goose " Greg " had fallen out and my daughter and her cousins for him and for two weeks my mom was happy. Then the lady came and got Greg. So what my mom didn't know was I ordered her 2 gosling. I ordered them at Mother's day and because I chose afor a later hatching date ,She didn't think she would get the goose. Then right at Father's day she got them! She fell in love that day and has absolutely loved both of the very much. Their names are Pet & Re-Pet.everything one does the other does. They all 3 are so happy. THANK YOU Metzer Farms

Cutest Little Babies!
I have been looking for a reliable and caring place to order birds from and im so happy with my choice. I love that they have a big selection of waterfowl and provide bands as well as an identification chart so you know who is who. I was a little scared having them shipped so far but they put a lot of care into making sure they arrived healthy. I just picked them up from the post office this morning and I was so excited to hear their little peeps, I will definitely be ordering more from them next spring!

So Delighted and Impressed
I must admit, I didn't know what to expect when I ordered 4 ducklings online. They were shipped on Wed and I picked them up Friday AM. They were packaged in a very sturdy box, with breathing holes, hay and nutrition. All four ducklings were very active and healthy. I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you!

Exactly what I ordered!
My experience with metzer farms has been amazing! I got my ducklings last June and all 6 arrived happy and healthy. We ordered a variety of breeds, and I decided to wait to write a review until I saw how well they performed. Can I just say, I've been pleased with everything. We got the correct genders and breeds, first off. And then they grew at the promised rates, and looked as expected based off of photos, and their personalities were generally matching with what was described as well! They all grew up healthy and strong and haven't had any health issues. They started laying right at 6 months after we got em, and have laid nearly an egg a day since, which exceeded my expectations of duck egg-laying frequency Our cayuga seems to be laying even more than that! And our male buff duck is doing his job well, we just hatched out some of their eggs under a cochin, and 7 out of 9 hatched. Our buff girl is also sitting on 9 eggs that are developing well! I ordered breeds with a greater tendency to go broody, as i wanted them to do the messy work for me. So far, everything has been golden!
If you want healthy, happy birds reliably ordered, who do what the descriptions say they're gonna do, metzer farms is for you.

Absolutely thrilled with my mail-order ducks!!!
I am incredibly happy with my little mail-order ducklings! They arrived super active and healthy. I was nervous about what to expect when I picked them up at post office- never ordered birds online before, and across the country, too. No need! They were perky and happy and ready to go!! They are about a month old now and growing fast. Just the sweetest, most affectionate and healthy little guys ever! I will definitely be ordering from Metzer again.

Ducklings and Guinea arrived safe and alive despite going across country. Arrived within 2 days. The Black Swedish Ducklings are adorable and thriving and super fast runners. Absolutely gorgeous. The guineas are thriving and very cute Keets. Got one bonus keet to. They took extra work showing them where to drink by sticking beaks in water with Booster , but after a day ,they all are doing great. A few looked week but are thriving now. I'm sure because they aren't the smartest fowl out there. Metzer did a wonderful job shipping them aince it was a small order. Thank you.

Metzer farm has been too choice for ducks and geese
Metzer has been wonderful for purchasing ducks and geese. They have all been a joy since they arrived on the farm. Customer service is top notch with quick responses to any issues or to get replacements on insured animals (predator loss). Would highly recommend for anyone thinking of getting any types of birds/waterfowl they offer. Have ordered multiple times over the two years and always a great experience.

All my duck babies are Metzer Farm babies!!
As a novice duck owner 2+yrs ago - Metzer has been a lifeline. Ducks were a pandemic project for my 2 acre fenced property that needed organic matter added to the soil, slug/bug maintenance in the flower/veggie beds and entertainment during lockdown.
I made all the mistakes at first. Alllllll of them. Including adopting 3 unsexed 3wk old Cayugas on craigslist. Naturally they turned out to be 2 drakes and one hen. Omg have I learned about drakes.
It's important to note that my duck babies are pets not raised for meat or egg production. I actually give all their eggs to a local small bakery business.
Metzer has delivered properly sexed, beautiful ducklings that have arrived healthy and alert. Whenever I've had questions about shipping (naturally I was super concerned the first time about having babies shipped in the mail) - their customer service team was prompt and put me at ease. I haven't had any issues thus far with receiving sick ducklings in my past 2 shipments but I'm only ordering 2 to 3 babies at a time so naturally I don't have the quantity to demonstrate a data set.
At the end of the day - when I decided to add to my very small 5 duck pet flock, the only choice was Metzer

Wonderful company and experience!
I 10000000% recommend Metzer! I have had some health issues with my ducks and do not have a vet willing to see them within an hours drive, Metzer is always happy to chat or email about any issues and give me advice. Also, the only company that I could find that had a good selection of birds with gender selection, which is great to ensure proper ratios or if you are not wanting any males.
Wonderful company! I ordered many ducks, for both myself and my friends, and they are all wonderful! I did have one pass shortly after arriving but Metzer quickly sent out a replacement to make it right. I purchased the Life Insurance on all of my ducks and had to use it when one died, and Metzer again quickly sent out a replacement with no issues. All of my ducks started laying on Christmas ironically, where before some where not laying consistently. The eggs are incredibly delicious, and the birds are very hardy. The ducks are about 7 months old and survived the coldest night we have had so far (7F) with no issues at all in a dog house with a lot of straw, with no additional heat.

Happy To Eat Eggs Again!
This was my first time ordering fresh duck eggs from Metzer Farms. It was suggested that I try duck eggs since I can no longer tolerate chicken eggs without developing a headache and an irritable gut. I could not find any fresh duck eggs in any stores near me. The order placement and payment were simple and quick. They arrived a day earlier than expected. They were placed in cushioned styrofoam. I have already placed my next order. Thanks!

We purchased cornish cross chicks back in May, and culled them at 10 weeks (late July). This was our 4th or 5th batch of meat chickens we had raised, but our first from Metzer farms. They birds averaged about 7-8 lbs, and were still incredibly active and healthy to be so large. We were very pleased and will definitely be ordering from you again. Good job Metzer Farms!

Happy Healthy Ducks and Geese
Our ducklings and goslings arrived healthy and happy. Of course, they are also adorable. This batch seems much calmer and less skittish than the last ducks we ordered from Metzer. However, Metzer Farms always seems to provide the best of the best birds anyone could hope to receive. Thank you!

Welsh harlequin and white layer babies
I was scared to order my babies to be shipped. This was a new experience for me, but I needed sexed ducklings to keep my ratio in check. I have had my 2 babies 12 hours now, and these sweeties are healthy, active, and all together acting as if they haven't just had a 2 day journey. Love my new babies.

We purchased 6 Silver Appleyard Ducklings that arrived back in May. They arrived very happy and healthy and have grown very fast. Unfortunately, we lost two to a predator but we purchased the insurance on them. When I called Metzer Farms they were very empathetic and created an order to replace the ducks we lost at no charge. They also were very helpful in working around our schedule to set up a delivery week. We are so happy with Metzer Farms and these ducks that we order two more and can't wait for them to arrive.

Healthiest birds EVER!
WOW! First time ordering from Metzer farms, and it won't be my last! Healthiest birds I have ever received! They were peeping loudly and very acive. Bright eyed and very curious. I was so surprised that my males were banded. I have never had a hatchery identify the sex of the birds. Mailed on Monday, received on Wednesday morning at 0830. I am impressed all the way around. BRAVO! I have ordered from many other hatcheries, you are the BEST!! You have a new customer, and I will be telling everyone about the fantastic quality of ducks I received.
Thank you so much! - Shelia

One of Everything
We run a small family farm and this was our first foray into waterfowl, and we didn't dive in half-heartedly. We selected Metzer based on reputation and they have not disappointed. Geese have been a bucket list item for us for a while and they arrived in great spirits and acclimated well. The ducks are adorable and energetic. The guineas jumped right in and cozied up with our other baby chicks we have.
Availability is tight for everything right now but Metzer's customer service and communication are top notch. They were and will continue to be our first stop for sourcing going forward.

Energetic happy baby ducks
Love my baby ducks. They arrived in two days from shipping. I would highly recommend you to do the express shipping. Don't be alarmed if eventhough the farm is in california your baby's go to Memphis Tennessee first then get re directed back to california. I called when that had happened and Ashley explained that is how the post office ships. The main distribution for live stock is Memphis Tennessee then from there they get distributed to where they need to be shipped to. This not any doing of Metzer farms. So as I said I would highly recommend the express shipping. My two girls are now two weeks old and are a joy to see them growing, full of energy and they love to run. Thank you Metzer Farms!

Very satisfied customer
I purchased 25 blown goose eggs to use for decorating and I was impressed with Metzer Farms from start to finish. Their website was amazing. Easy to use and very informative with the egg sizes being included in the description as well as showing the inventory on hand of each type of egg. After placing my order, I received an instant confirmation. The eggs were received a day earlier than estimated, well packed, and very clean.

I was really nervous about my package arriving, that something would happen or they would arrive cold and dead. But I got a box full of peeps, I opened it and they were all alive and well and super cute. I took them home and it took them a little bit to eat but they drank right away when I dipped their bills. They are all good now and follow me around and snuggle in my jacket.

First time raising any birds....
I have waited years to start my dream of raising geese. I was so nervous choosing the breed, when to get them, how to get them. Even though I had a very small order, the folks at Metzer Farms were so nice during my multiple phone calls with questions, changing my order around, and my worried calls about the shipping process. I received my precious cargo exactly when promised, in excellent condition, and they are growing like weeds! They follow me around like puppies and seem very happy and healthy. I am so pleased and grateful to the staff for their care and patience. I will certainly order from them again and have recommended them to everyone I know that is considering a gosling purchase. My family and I are happily watching our babies thrive!!! Best purchase ever! zer

First Time Having Birds Shipped and Couldn’t be Happier!
Price, shipping time, communication, etc. were all great. I loved that I could have an extra small order of only two ducks. Although there was an extra cost for a small order, I believe it was well worth it as my ducklings arrived safe and warm. They came with the gel, a heating pack, and extra insulation. My ducklings shipped Tuesday and arrived to be early Wednesday morning! I just wish you guys had the other breeds I’m looking for because I’d love to buy from them from you!

Very Pleased With Our Silver Appleyards
I recieved a tracking number on Monday. Today is Wednesday and the post office called. I picked up my package of 5 healthy, happy ducklings. I am thrilled with my purchase. My husband and I are second time listeners and skimmed over the pamplet. We cut off the leg band of the first duckling we picked up to realize after the third one that he was our male and now they are mixed up. No problem for us as they will all be together anyways. We had a good laugh and will wait to see which one is our boy.

We have had great luck raising the two females - we bought them primiarly for our gander sebastopol. He is very attached to them. We bought them in April of last year and about two months ago, we noticed some hanky panky in the pool. Well now we have about 20 eggs under the two females and I took four out to incubate them in the house. We have had 2 hatch in the incubator - haven't checked the females' nest yet. We love our geese - thank you.

Ducklings in December!
This was my first time ordering ducklings by mail. Was I a nervous duck mama! What was I doing ordering in winter? I was afraid of everything, that my days old babies would be frozen in transit, that I would miss the post office call or that my order would end up somewhere else, Surprise, surprise! EVERYTHING went perfectly. The post office was great, the shipping containers were so sturdy, all the ducklings arrived in fine shape (for being in a moving box for a couple of days, fresh out of the shell, they were fantastic). We dipped every little beak in water as we gently placed them in their preheated bins (great set up support from Metzer) and we were off to the races! It's been eleven weeks and the last of the fuzz on their cute heads is fading. We hope to be swimming in eggs this summer. Thank you, Metzer Farms for streamlining this mail order experience.

At least they have strong healthy lungs!
Just picked up my two females from the post office this morning. The Post Master handed me a very loud, shipping box, with a little heating pad to keep them warm. I got them home, set them in their brooding box to get them aclimated to our climate. I've raised Jumbo Pekin before, and am aware of how fast they grow, so we have some electrolites in their water for strong healthy bones. Once they are grown, we'll introduce them to our mature flock.

Arrived fast and alive!
After having lots of chicks die in transit with other companies, I am very happy that my three (soon to be four) orders of Metzer chicks arrived alive and, what's better, healthy and perky. I order from Metzer because I live in Northern California and, with the now-world-famous slowed-down Post Office, I was fed up with shipments sitting in a USPS facility in Kansas City for 24 unecessary hours, to arrive with a third to a half of the chicks dead. When I order from Metzer I know they're hatched 90 minutes south as the crow flies, and that they will be to me the day after they hatched, no exceptions, so from hatch to my brooder light is barely 24 hours. Aside from that, the chicks are robust and healthy and I am very pleased with their growth rate and dressout as well. I am coming up on 50 days with my current run and they are plump and healthy and will be ready for harvest on day 56. I will keep ordering from Metzer.

The golden 300's out lay my khakis 2:1 but they are the most nervous duck I've ever seen. They arrived nervous and any little thing sends them running into the fence. I purchased them because they were suppose to be more calm than khakis. I think you would have more luck taming a wild mallard. Although it doesn't seem to affect their laying. Overall satisfied. Good buying experience.

Love my Buffs
They arrived across the country in 2 days. The post office called at 6am and they were home by 7am. These geese are so friendly yet protective of their chicken friends. They eat out of my hands and if I lean down and "talk" to them they get inches from my face and talk back. Every time I walk out the back door they hear me and call out. Otherwise I barely hear anything out of them. Also, so pretty and just love to see them waddling around.
January 6, 2021 |
Love our new addition ?
I ordered these 2 baby ducks for my kids. I was so worried that they had to travel all the way from California to Florida but they arrived in a couple days cute as can be. We will surely order from Metzer Farms again.

Can’t wait to order more
I purchased 2 sweet little runner ducks in August and the whole experience has been fantastic. Confirmation of purchase and shipping was timely and clear. The ducklings arrived in the evening and I got to pick them up that night instead of waiting until morning. The ducklings were in perfect condition with grow gel all over their bills, which I understood to mean that they really enjoyed it. They explored their brooder fully right away and bonded to me easily. They have been so much fun. I can't wait to get more this spring. Thanks.

Amazing white layers
We purchased 3 hybrid white layer ducklings in spring 2018. They arrived happy and healthy! They started to lay in the fall of 2018, and two of them laid an egg almost every day for a year and a half. I've never seen any poultry lay like this! They live outside all year, with an insulated dog house in a 3 1/2-sided shelter, well-bedded with hay. We only put them into the chicken house when temperatures drop to single digits, and they'd rather be outside. And they keep laying no matter the weather. We use the eggs for almost everything. We love our ducks!

Duck, Duck, Goose
LOVE these birds. They've grown into big, healthy birds, full of personality and sassiness. They're beautiful! I can't decide if the ducks think they're geese or the goose thinks she's a duck. Whichever, they are best friends and stay together most of the time.

The Freshest Duck Eggs!
I needed a reliable source for duck eggs. My daughter is allergic to chicken eggs but does well with duck eggs. I found Metzer farms through an online search, gave them a try, and have been very happy. The eggs arrive packed well and are very fresh.

The BEST laying ducks EVER!!
Ok - I was skeptical about the Hybrid 300s. Did some research and figured that if they didn't work out I'd try another breed. Oh my GOSH!!! These girls are laying like crazy!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!! So much that we're going to place another order!!! They showed up right on time and healthy!!! Thank you all so much!!!

Ducklings: Safe 'n' Happy!
Ducklings shipped on Monday and arrived early Wednesday morning. They were safe and very well fed, with still more gro-gel to spare. There were heat packs, though they were fairly cooled by the time I got the ducklings. But the postal service kept them in a warm environment. They are very healtthy and very perky. One is already running back and forth from one end of their new crate to the other. The drake absolutely LOVES to cuddle.Box was sturdy, the cardboard very thick and flaps securely fastened with heavy duty staples. Plenty of ventilation and bedding. I was sure to bring water with me and the ducklings really appreciated it.Customer service was fantastic, was prompt in answering the question I had when I phoned in, and processing was immediate. They have very fair pricing, but mind you, there is a small order charge (understandably so) if you aren't ordering a large quantity. Just to note: I would recommend calling your local Post Office to alert them to receiving live animal shipments. But note, the post office that received mine were an hour away and I had never entertained the thought to call them. But it was fine, as they deal with live animal shipments a lot. It makes sense for them to have gone there rather than MY very local (very out of the way of anything) Post Office.

The ducklings arrived happy and healthy. Almost a week now. They're growing very strong and fast. I will definitely be purchasing more poultry from metzerfarms.com. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Metzer Farms is THE place to buy geese!
I got some new geese this spring - Buffs, Pilgrims, and Tufted Buffs. They arrived healthy and vigorous and have grown into GORGEOUS young adults. They're calm, curious, beautiful birds. I could not be happier.I had them sexed, and that was great too - the color bands were easy to figure out and now I know who's who. I will definitely buy more birds from Metzer Farms. I'd recommend this farm to anyone.
I received my shipment of precious baby ducks this morning. They arrived safe and sound. They are eating and drinking, all seems good. I have never ordered through the mail, but I have read many comments on FB Raising Ducks 101, recommending your facility. I will certainly recommend Metzer Farms and purchase again.
Kimberly - Gardner, Colorado
Thank you for helping us. I am truly grateful for you expertise and service after sale!
I got a call from the local post office yesterday morning at 6:30 saying the chicks had arrived, so I picked them up 15 minutes later. They are here and doing fine and I wanted to thank you so much for getting them here so quickly and safely.
Connie - La Selva Beach, California
I'm way happy with my order. They are cute as can be. I'm over the moon in love.
Lisa - Castle Rock, Washington
I purchased seven Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you in April and I just want to say they are beautiful birds and I am enjoying them so much! Thank you!
Christine - Ferndale, Washington
The 3 Runners arrived alert and in great shape. I am so pleased with how they were packaged. I give you a great review. Thank you!
Colleen - Northfield, New Hampshire
The ducklings arrived early this morning, the post office let me come to the back door at 7:30am! They seem totally healthy and very lively. Thank you so much! I'll be sure to recommend you in the future.
Kristin - Orleans, Massachusetts
I just wanted to post a testimonial on your website. I ordered 10 ducklings and they arrived happy and healthy. This is the first time I've ordered from a hatchery and I'm very pleased with my new baby ducklings.
Robert - Reno, Nevada
I got the birds. They look very healthy. Say thank you to all your staff and keep doing a good job.
Johnny - Rexburg, Idaho
I just wanted to say thank you! I am a first time buyer with you all and your customer service is excellent. I bought some Mallard eggs to hatch and they all arrived perfect. I incubated 4 duck eggs for the first time and all hatched healthy and happy. They are adorable. I could not have done it without you all.
Angel - Purcellville, Virginia
Our baby goslings arrived before 8:00am this morning. My husband went right down to get them. I gotta tell you he was like a little kid at Christmas!! By the way he's 68!! To say he was pleased with them, is an understatement! Thank you so much!!
Louise - Earlville, New York
Thank you so much for your help this whole week. I know I've been bombarding you with emails and questions, but I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your quick responses.
Ashley - Rock Hill, South Carolina
My geese arrived promptly at 6:13am at my post office and they are all in perfect condition. I was surprised at how active compared to chickens they are at only three days old. They immediately started foraging as soon as I took them out of the box and were eager to be hand fed. This was a great experience and I'm already looking forward to future orders.
Justus - Liberty Hill, Texas
Last year we ordered 10 hatchable Pekin duck eggs. We received 15, and hatched 10! It was a great experience for my boys. This year during the sheltering, we are considering the prospects of hatching Mallard duck eggs. Thank you for your attention to detail and for your kindness.
Tim - Sacramento, California
Our order arrived last Saturday and I quickly incubated them. I candled them today and am happy to report that all but one look like they are growing. Thank you so much!! I will gladly recommend your farm!!
Cameron - Wakefield, Rhode Island
Metzer Farms knows EXACTLY what they are doing! These babies were in a sturdy, breathable box with 2 cups of gel food (stapled to the side, smart!), a hay nest and a heat pack (brilliant!). I expected that they would be stressed from the trip, but they settled in playing, eating and drinking right away!
I ordered 4 Muscovy ducklings. I was apprehensive because 1. I've never mail ordered live animals before and 2. I live on the East Coast. I just received them this morning. Let me tell you, they are happy, healthy, and cute as a button! A dream come true for my 15 year old step daughter.
We ordered 8 mallards. They arrived on schedule. They were nicely packaged with bedding, a warm pack and a cup of water. They all appear vigorously healthy. We couldn't be happier. Thanks to the folks at Metzer Farms!
Great birds and quick delivery!
Eggs arrived yesterday! So fast and so beautiful. Clearly labeled. Thank you! I can't say enough good things about you guys! From phone order to hatching!
Elsa - Woodstock, Vermont
We bought 10 Welsh Harlequin duck eggs from you a couple of years ago. Arrived in Alaska beautifully and 10 were fertile (you sent 12). Almost 3 years later, we have adored our ducks and this breed is the sweetest.
Rachael - Anchorage, Alaska
Just wanted to thank you for making all the adjustments to my order. The two ducklings arrived safe and sound. Thank you to John Metzer and his team of workers for the amazing experience. Looking forward to getting more ducks in the future.
Jo - Redmond, Washington
Our 3 replacement ducklings came in this morning. They all seem very healthy and are eating and drinking like normal. I just want to say thank y'all so much for everything. I appreciate y'all and I will 100% be ordering from y'all again in the future.
Margaret - Lucedale, Mississippi
Thanks Metzer Farms! All my ducklings arrived in two days, in perfect condition, active and hungry, and took to feed and water immediately. The neighborhood kids are interested, asking questions and learning all about ducks, as am I. They named them all! Black Jack, Smack Jack, Flap Jack, Cracker Jack, Billy Jack and Bumper Jack.
Steve - Troy, Illinois
I'm new to raising any kind of livestock. Your website is excellent, easy, intuitive interface and loaded with useful information instead of marketing hype, and I appreciate it - a good website is a sign of a good business.

Thank you so much for the two absolutely beautiful baby Cayugas. They arrived happy, healthy and started eating and drinking right away. It was love at first sight! I've named them Annie and Nettie.
JoAnn - Northwood, Iowa
We received the ducklings today, a day early as you stated. The post office called us at 7am and we went and picked them up. The kids are thrilled they're both here, and we thank you for an awesome first experience with you all. Thank you again.
Todd - Seneca, South Carolina
They are here, eating and drinking, and settling in. All alive! So happy!! Thanks again for replying. I am thrilled and will definitely do business with Metzer Farms again!
Brooke - Glendale, Arizona
I'm beyond happy with my order of Cayugas I received yesterday. I was a bit worried since I was on the wait list since June for these babies but after getting them home, they are lively & immediately took to drinking/eating. Thanks so much for the time and effort put into your ducks that's behind scenes and goes unnoticed. I'm very impressed with this order and will order again in the Spring!
Christian - Eubank, Kentucky
I know you deal with 100's of birds daily and that you took time out for Molly means a lot to us. Stay safe. You have a customer life!

Ann - Novato, California
Thank you for my new flock of friends! They are growing like weeds. Soon they will be out cleaning the yard and eventually producing wonderful eggs. Much appreciated.
Julie - Anacortes, Washington
I got my ducklings this morning and they are absolutely beautiful and in great shape. Thank you so much for all of your help and please tell Ashley I said thanks to her too. You guys are the BEST!!! I love my little babies. I was afraid when I had them pinioned they would have a big hole in their wings but you can't even tell it! I was so happy to get them and see how healthy they are. Thanks again for all your help with this matter and for being such a great place to order from.
Debbie - Pataskala, Ohio
Our newest additions, Daisy and Ruby arrived safely. They are currently inside getting adjusted. Can't wait to put them outside in their new duck habitat.

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.
Cheryl - Fort White, Florida
Let me just compliment you on your Cornish Cross chickens. I have always held you guys up as the premier duck hatchery. Let me just say that these birds have outperformed any hatchery I have brought from in the last few years. These birds are huge and unaffected by the Summer heat. I look forward to continuing to order ducks as well as chickens from you all. Thank you!
Derek - Seymour, Tennessee
Thank you, thank you, and thank you. We just picked them up from the post office and they are alive and happy. I appreciate the tracking information and thanks to that was able to coordinate with the post office to get them safely home. I'll definitely be returning on any future purchases and thank you again.
Mike - Milan, Michigan
I appreciate your quickness and understand why this company was highly recommended. Thank you and have a good day.

I just got my shipment of ducklings today. They arrived in great shape, and are settling in nicely. The whole process of ordering and shipping was smooth and trouble free.
We have been super happy with your ducklings so far and keep recommending Metzer Farms to friends and on facebook groups. This is the only issue we've had after several orders and this is an easy fix and nothing to do with the quality of the birds. Thank you for that!
Rebecca - Oswego, New York
WOW!!! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!! My ducklings arrived, way quicker than expected, all very healthy ducklings, eating, drinking and playing with their new one week old Cayuga siblings! Thank you so much, again, you guys are AWESOME!!

I received my order of ducks and they are healthy and beautiful. I am impressed with the way they were packaged. From the straw to the gel food dishes to the heat pack that was still warm after 4 days..amazing. I couldn't be happier and will HIGHLY recommend Metzer to anyone ordering ducklings or chicks.
Rebecca - Forestdale, Massachusetts
My first EGG-sperience with getting birds or hatching eggs from a hatchery and Metzer Farms was EGG-straordinary! I ordered 3 Chocolate Runner hatching eggs and 2 Cayuga hatching eggs. All arrived in EGG-cellent condition! And they sent and EGG-stra Runner egg! 100% hatch rate! They are a month old now and thriving. They were my first ducks and were worth it. If you want ducks, order from Metzer Farms!
Lily - Pine Lake, Georgia

Jason - Rescue, California
Just wanted to let you know we got the 14 chicks and ducklings. They are all healthy and happy in their brooder. The kids were thrilled to see the chicks especially our 10 year old. I joked to my son that the ducks imprinted on him and he will be followed from now on. Thank you for taking such good care of them.
Margaret - Roseville, California
Just wanted to say "Thank you" for my new Buff goslings. They arrived safely and are happily living under a warmer in my porch. They have already started following me around when I let them out of the pen and they are content to be held and petted. As always, great service! Wishing you the best this season and look forward to contacting you next spring for my next order.
Michael - Sharon, Massachusetts
Our Muscovy ducklings just arrived. All are doing great. What fun. Watching and playing with them has given us something to do during our "house arrest". I hope all of you are doing well. Thank you for your service.
John - Pierce, Colorado
Our ducklings came today and they are ADORABLE! Just wanted to say thanks for brightening our quarantine, the boys are so excited to watch their ducklings grow. Gave your website to several friends who saw how cute they are via social media and have asked how we got them by mail, lol.
Lynee - Salem, Oregon
My beautiful Embden name Borris and Henrietta, they are so loving and talkative.... school time they were there to get the babies off the bus. They lay down near you while your outside. I have conversations with my geese. They talk to me all the time. I love them so much.
The 3 little geese have arrived in Apex, NC this Wednesday morning approximate 7am. All three are in excellent health. Thank you for getting them here alive, great job for such a long trip. We are all well, so will enjoy watching the natives grow in our beautiful springtime weather.
David - Apex, North Carolina
Thank you, Metzer Farms for your time, professionalism, speedy delivery and (most importantly) healthy babies!! This veterinary tech is VERY pleased! I will definitely pass on your name and you will have my business in the future!
I want to tell you about my pair of Gray Toulouse geese that will turn 13 years old on April 6th. They have been the most faithful geese to one another. The gander is a great guard to his goose and the goose is the best brooder and mother I have ever seen. They are both great parents. I've purchased them when I was 13 and now I'm 27. Better than any dog. Haha
Ethan - Carson City, Michigan
I just wanted to say thank you for sending our lovely ducklings and goslings. They arrived safe and sound early yesterday morning and were very lively and ready for their adventure. Again thank you so much.
