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 order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
Just letting you know that the pair of Sebastopol goslings arrived here in Hawaii in EXCELLENT condition! They were bright eyed, alert, and talkative...and ooh, are they so adorable - even the animal quarantine office staff at the airport thought so!
Thank you for your excellent customer service and follow through on permit papers with the state of Hawaii, and securing a flight. Thank you, John, and to everyone else involved with the hatching and shipping process of the goslings. Your business is #1!
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for our three Khaki Campbell girls that you mailed to us June 9th! They are happy Boise, Idahoan ducks now and we love them so much! Thank you for every step of the process and how professional and helpful you allowed this process to be for our family. We would not hesitate to refer someone to your farm, thank you so much again!
Our absolute favorite duck for small scale duck egg production is the White Layer that we purchase from Metzers. We have only had wonderful experiences ordering from you all, thank you.
We received our baby ducks yesterday. They arrived on time and are so cute and adorable. Every one of them are active. As soon as we opened up the box, they tried to jump out. These ducks bring bundles of joy to us. Thank you so much and if we need more ducks, we will order from you guys.
What's with these Golden 300 Hybrid Layers? It's the dead of a Maine winter. Gets dark before 4 in the afternoon. And we are still getting six to eight eggs a day from eight ducks! These girls don't want to quit. I keep talking these girls up to people who ask about ducks for eggs.
My ducks and goose made it to Arkansas...so cute...excited being first time duck and goose mama! Thank you!
I just wanted to let you know, I had ordered ducklings for the first time ever online from you guys...they arrived safe and sound, and every single one of them looked very healthy! I just wanted to thank you so much for being a good business and making my first online chick ordering a success! I will be doing business with you for any future purchases.
The runners are a scream! They are the most talkative, active and imaginative of any ducks I've seen. Just for the fun of them though, I'd suggest runners for folks wanting a little flock of ducks to lighten life.
My baby ducklings(Surfin" Babies) arrived this morning on schedule. They were very active and peeping. The post office was impressed with the packaging and the ducklings, as was I. Looking forward to purchasing others and giving you thumbs up.
I was given 5 White Crested ducklings a friend of mine purchased from you. Owen, my only White Crested drake, won Reserve Champion Overall Waterfowl, and the females were first through fourth in the same class, they also won the best flock of waterfowl in the county! I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl.
What started as a couple of ducks for fun has become a passion, hobby, way of life for us. And it is something my husband and I can enjoy together. We adore our babies. Thanks to you our pond is filled with love and feathers!
Been wanting to write and let you know 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.
Thank you so much for your quick response and also for answering quite a few questions of mine about incubating. I will definitely order from you again!
