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 have never ordered any live waterfowl before so I entered the process rather reluctantly. My first call to your company quickly allayed all my fears and you patiently answered all my questions. Your customer service is exemplary.
I know you deal with 100's of birds daily and that you took time out for Molly means a lot to us. Stay safe. You have a customer life!
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!!
Thank you so much! I will definitely put out some reviews and good words for you around here. Thanks
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.
The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
I wanted to let you know that the replacement ducklings arrived yesterday and are doing great. Thank you so much for being willing to replace the three that we lost during our last shipment. I look forward to doing business with you all for years to come.
I am very pleased with my order and highly recommend your company. It is a delight to work with such an ethical company. To anyone considering ordering from Metzer Farms, place your order with confidence-you will not be disappointed!
I'm so impressed with y'all! I received my duck eggs two days after I ordered them. I just wanted to say thank you and that I'm really impressed!
My cousin may want some ducks. I have just been raving about you guys. When it comes time for him to order, I will definitely send him your way. And any other person who might need any.
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!!
We received our Cayuga ducklings yesterday and they are so amazingly perfect...my goodness. I swore I wasn't adding any birds this year....but their perfection had me setting up my brooder last night!
If my husband lets me sneak more into our new flock I'll order again and again from Metzer. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Great prices too for the service you offer.
Earlier in the year, we bought 4 of your Embden goslings from a person that ordered 60+ goslings from you. Again, healthy as can be. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
We have had our ducklings for 12 days now and what a joy they are!! Thank you soooo much!!
