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.
Thank you for our order. Our Golden 300 hybrids and Pilgrim geese are all GREAT!! They arrived healthy and ready to grow.
Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them.
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.
Thank you very much for being a pleasure to work with. My ducklings arrived Wednesday morning, just as you said, all healthy but jetlagged - ready for a brooder and a good meal. I wanted to thank you for excellent customer service from Kelly, who I had the pleasure of speaking with a couple times. She was very reassuring to me. Keep doing what you are doing!
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.
Thank you for a lovely and lively batch of ducklings. This is our first batch of Rouens and we're looking forward to what looks to be a beautiful adult bird.
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.
Everyone loves duck eggs here, especially the duck hunters. Everyone should know by now that some of the more famous bakeries use duck eggs and if you want a good holandaise sauce, there's no other egg that compares.
We got our ducks today and were very energetic and happy when we picked them up at the post office this morning. Thanks for customer service over the last 3 months as we prepared for the new family pets.
The book i ordered on raising geese arrived today...just two days after ordering!! If this order were on eBay, your feedback from me woudl be five stars!!
Received my replacement Buff goslings today, all is well. Many thanks to you all again! I recommend you guys to everyone who has complimented our birds!
After a little panicking, I got a call on day 3 that my babies were here! I was expecting some losses...but when I peeled back the lid..I had 10 unhappy (who wouldn't be after that trip) but healthy ducklings squinting into the light! We got home and they got settled into their brooder, started drinking right away and are running around, happy to be done with their travels!
Thank you so much for your VERY informative video on sexing ducks and geese! My geese are hatching out now and I feel more confident after watching your video on my abilities to check them out when they are all hatched out!
Year after year, California ducklings leave Monday and arrive Wednesday at 8am like clock work. Thanks! Best waterfowl you can buy.
Hello!! I wanted to send a message letting you know 2 of our Khaki Campbell ducklings arrived today in perfect condition! Thank you so much!!! They are precious as can be and will make a wonderful addition to our tiny flock.
