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.
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.
My ducklings arrived on schedule, and were in perfect condition. I just wanted to say thank you and that your ordering/shipping procedures are very proficient. Thanks again.
Just wanted to say thanks so much for the beautiful healthy ducklings and great service. You run a top notch business and it was nice working with you.
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.
Just letting you know my four babies arrived on time yesterday morning in great shape. Thank you for all of your support and I am looking forward to ordering from you in the future.
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.
Just like last year, 100% of the eggs you sent were fertile. I'm thrilled every Blue Runner hatched, and 7 out of 10 Golden 300's. I witnessed some very rough handling but your excellent way of packaging saved them all. The ducklings are all strong and perfect.
My Golden 300 Hyrbrid arrived in excellent health.
Our six-pack of ducklings arrived yesterday morning, and are in great shape. Thanks for finding a way to send out a smaller minimum order, with the heat pack. In the past I've had to order more than I wanted to keep. Your website provides a great deal of helpful information and your service has been quick, professional, and greatly appreciated!
I would like to thank you guys so much for our new members of the family. I picked up our baby Mallards this morning and they were healthy and playing around. They love their new home. Again thank you!
Thank you for the very prompt service. We love Metzer Farms for quality of your ducks and geese and now for the outstanding service as well.
I picked them up this morning and found two happy, hungry, and thirsty ducklings! They were packed very well. Thank you!
Our baby geese are here! As so many have said on this site as well as Metzer Farms site, they arrived happy, hungry and healthy. I can't wait to see my Super Africans grow up!
I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the trouble that you put up with in dealing with me. You guys were great to work with and I have nothing but great things to say about Kelly and Ashley and how helpful you two were...
Goose and Gander are also very nice birds to live with while Gander is more protective. Goose will approach and sit with me and Gander will also reluctantly settle close to you but he takes his job of guard very seriously.
