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.
My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
Thank you for our ducks! They are beautiful, healthy and very entertaining!!
I believe that the ducklings (including Feline) and goslings that we get at the farm store generally have originated from your farm, they have always been healthy we have never lost one to illness. Thank you.
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.
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.
Ducklings arrived early this morning - quacking! THANK YOU!!
My babies just arrived today, Tuesday 9:45am! Post office is fast! Thank you so much, they're beautiful and healthy! I've named them Coco & Ginger :-)
We picked up our baby Rouen's this morning from the post office!! 12 happy and healthy babies!! Thank you so much!!
I just wanted to let you know that my goslings arrived right on time yesterday and that I could not be more happy!! I was worried about the fact that they were having to travel from California all the way to North Georgia; it turns out that I worried for nothing. They arrived in perfect shape and full of energy!!!!
Ducks arrived this morning. All are alive and vocal. Thank you everyone for your help.
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!
Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful Welsh Harlequin and Indian Runner ducklings, and two Buff goslings that I ordered from you. They arrived right on schedule this past Wednesday full of spunk and healthy appetite. They are growing fast and are gorgeous!
Our baby ducklings just arrived, and they have been watered, fed, loved on, and settled in. We are delighted with them, and want to say "Thank You" to everyone there!
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.
We sell our duck eggs to the public and our ducks can't seem to lay enough eggs to satisfy our customers. Our ducks have always arrived on time and in good happy condition.
