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.
The White Layers I bought earlier this year are fantastic layers! They began to lay just when you said they would and are still laying strongly after 6 months.
Just wanted to let you know, I received my two beautiful Rouen Ducklings today and I am VERY pleased with them! They came happy, healthy and are doing wonderful!
The birds arrived in great(perfect!)condition this morning, thank you so much! I will definitely order from you again!
The ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.

5 stars! I was a little worried about ordering baby ducks all the way from California to Louisiana. My order of 30+ ducklings arrived Thursday morning. Every single one looks fiesty and healthy! Jumping out of the box immediately to greet us.
I got my ducklings and they are in great shape. Thank you Metzer Farms.
I just wanted to say "Thank you" to Metzer Farms for outstanding customer service! You have a customer for life and I will be returning to purchase all my eggs from you in the future! Have a Great Day!
Received the ducks in great shape as always. Thank you for continuing this service.
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.
Our ducklings arrived today all the way in South Carolina and we had no losses! All 12 are doing great. Also, I dealt with Ashley about my credit card not working, and she was super nice and helpful! Thanks for everything. I will definitely tell others about you all.
I wanted to say thank you to your farm. I have ordered, hatched, and raised from numerous placed including hatching and raising my own birds. Most companies are all about getting paid and no customer service or gratitude to the customer. Your farm is the opposite of most places and I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for animals you have.
Last year our 4-H group ordered ducks and geese for our county fair projects. Your ducks and geese were grand and reserve duck and goose. There were four Metzer waterfowl entered and all four were on the top! My daughter REALLY enjoys her ducks and was very proud and pleased to win.
