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.
Loved the Golden 300 Hybrid from Metzer Farms. They were the first 3 ducks I got 10 years ago and they were all very personable, prolific layers and long lived.
Birds arrived in great shape. Best delivery I have ever had. Thanks
Just received my two female Pekin ducklings this morning. They arrived in perfect condition. Both very healthy and happy babies. Thank you very much. Will order from you again!
Just wanted to say thank you!! I received my babies this morning and they are all doing great!
When we first started thinking about ducklings, I wasn't sure where to order from. After seeing all the great reviews of you guys on Backyard Chickens, I went with my gut and ordered through you guys even though you were so far away. I am so glad I did:-)
I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain. More than anything, your advice game me confidence about raising my goslings, calming, helpful and kind people like you are wonderful. Ashley, you are a blessing for "newbies" like myself.
We got our baby Welsh Harlequin ducks, Buff geese, and Buff duck this morning at the Lynden post office. they arrived in perfect shape, all bright eyed and bushy tailed. What a happy bunch! Thank for another group of quality ducks and geese..
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 wanted to personally thank you for dealing with my order. The goslings arrived very alert and strong. They have been growing very nicely and I'm sure they are gonna become beautiful geese. I will definitely order from you in the future.
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.
YOU GUYS DESERVE AN AWARD! IVE NEVER DEALT WITH SUCH A GREAT COMPANY. Thank you
The ducks I have purchased from you over the years have brought my family and I so much joy! Especially me and our young granddaughters. Thank you for the care you take in shipping these babies across the country to provide such happiness!
I picked them up this morning and found two happy, hungry, and thirsty ducklings! They were packed very well. Thank you!
I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service! I initially placed an order for duckling eggs, and when a few of them arrived broken (hard to believe because the packaging was absolutely excellent!), you not only shipped immediate replacements, but threw in a few extra to boot.
