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.
I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs. Only 1 perished on the trip and the rest seem happy, healthy and very vibrant. I am very thrilled! Thank you again for the wonderful ducklings!! All your help was greatly appreciated!!
All 24 ducklings arrived this morning healthy and ready to get out of their box. They all look perfect. Thank you guys!
If I ever need to order birds in the future, Metzer Farms will be the first place I look. I'll be sure to send my friends also!
I received my ducklings this morning! They made it to Orange, Texas at 5:41am and notified by 7:26am! The service of Metzer has been fantastic. It has been a great experience. Thank you so much for the awesome quacks!!
I love Metzer Farms, they are great. My Metzer group of geese is larger and more robust.
I just wanted to let you know that our Blue Swedish and Welsh Harlequin ducks arrived- they where a day early, and all super healthy and active. thanks for sending us such great ducklings!
Hi, just informing that the ducks arrived early this am and seems to be fine. Thank you for doing a great job. We are looking forward to seeing them grow as family pets and producing eggs to feed our family.
I just wanted to send a quick message to say how impressed I am with our purchase from you. My daughter, who is 15 years old, ordered 6 various breeded ducklings. They all arrived alive and healthy. They are about 10 days old now, and they are doing very well. She is one very happy young lady!
After two semi-sleepless night because of excitement and a little worry my Sebastapol geese and Khaki Campbell ducks arrived safely and in great condition. They are very friendly and I love them. Thanks for sending such healthy birds.
Just wanted to let you know that our ducklings arrived safe and sound and, of course, cute as can be. I appreciate the "extra helping" of 2-very kind of you!! They are all chowing down and quite active so I'll take that as a good sign.
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!
I received 5 duck eggs about a month ago. I followed your instructions on incubating duck eggs, I turned them 7 times in the beginning and then decreased as the days went on but always turned 3 times a day. So 28 days went by and all 5 ducks hatched! I even called your office during the hatching process and the staff always eager to help answer any questions I had.
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.
This is my first year raising waterfowl and the birds seem to be off to a roaring start. I'm certainly taken with goslings...they seem to be such characters!
Thank you very much for your wonderful service. Our pair of Pekin ducklings arrived earlier than we expected and appear very healthy. The ducklings are adorable and we will definitely recommend your hatchery to friends!
