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.
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!
Thank you so much. I think all places should do business like this honest and right again. Will be buying all my chics from your farm.
I must say you have a great staff for an employee named Ashley helped me through my endless question via email.
Ordered 2 female ducklings and they arrived safe and sound. Will be ordering from you if I need anymore in the future.
Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for the beautiful ducklings! I ordered ten assorted females and they came in today all happy and vibrant. Thank you for your excellent service and I will be sure to tell everyone about you!
Thank you for the info you have given us. 5 of the 8 eggs hatched! Your patience and time are greatly appreciated! They are all eating, drinking, peeping and active. My kids are so happy!
The Golden 300 Hybrid are every bit as good at foraging as Khaki Campbells, perhaps better. they remind me of that pack of Velociraptors in the movie Jurassic Park.
I got my ducklings and they are in great shape. Thank you Metzer Farms.
You guys have gone above and beyond. Your customer service had been great and it has been a pleasure to do business with you.
Wanted to thank you for the goslings we received this morning. They were in excellent health and had only 2 DOA's out of the 506 shipped.
We have been customers of Metzer Farms for a few years now and just wanted to tell you that we were very excited to see that all of the 100 Cornish Cross and 130 Grimaud Hybrid arrived this am in very good condition. We appreciate you taking the extra steps to insulate the boxes. It was 1 degree F this am here. Thank you!
I purchased seven Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you in April and I just want to say they are beautiful birds and I am enjoying them so much! Thank you!
I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future.
Thank you again for another perfect order. All 3 of my Buff ducklings are happy and healthy. Good and fast shipping to Ohio.
I am having a blast with my Khaki Campbell girls! They keep me much more entertained than I ever thought they would.
