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.
We ordered 8 mallards. They arrived on schedule. They were nicely packaged with bedding, a warm pack and a cup of water. They all appear vigorously healthy. We couldn't be happier. Thanks to the folks at Metzer Farms!
I just got my order of ducklings! All 5 of my ladies were in AMAZING health and vitality! Thank you so much! I couldn't wait to get them from the post office, I was there at 5:30....they were just peeping away in their box!! Thanks for your care and quality!!
My 3 year old son and I were so excited to pick up our ducks from the post office this am. As always the birds arrived safe and sound with their GROW GEL! The post office lady told me that ducks from another hatchery didn't make it and they had no food on their transport. I love your quality and super customer service and look forward to ordering from you every Summer!
I got the birds. They look very healthy. Say thank you to all your staff and keep doing a good job.
These ducks I have are so much better than the laying hens I've had previously, with higher production, stronger egg shells, and larger egg sizes.
Our pair of French Toulouse goslings arrived two days after ordering....and we live on a remote island in Alaska where our mail comes daily by float plane, if the weather is good. They arrived in perfect health, and are already munching happily on grass tips! Thank you so much!
Your ducks are right at twice as big in virtually the same number of weeks as the previous ducks I was raising. You have some very impressive duck genetics. Very happy customer: Keep up the good work.
We have endured jabs about our "fancy purebreds" but over the years with the Khaki Campbells and the Swedes we have had wonderful health and longevity and of course it really helped being able to order just what we wanted in sexes. We know that with the quality of your birds, we have more than gotten our money's worth.
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.
Hello just wanted to say my ducks arrived safe and sound. Just wanted to say they are so cute that I am glad I got them from you guys. Thank you very much!
I believe that the ducklings (including Feline) and goslings that we get at the farm store generally have originated from your farm, they have always been healthy we have never lost one to illness. Thank you.
Our 4 Toulouse geese 1 male and 3 female where shipped on Monday,May 23rd and we received the call at 4pm from our post office here in Alaska that they had arrived on Wednesday May 25. We picked up at 5:30 and everyone was doing great they have been here over night and are eating, drinking and active this morning. We will recommend you to others and will be ordering again in the future.
I love my Golden 300 and tell everyone I know about these wonderful hens. At $12 a dozen, each egg is a dollar. It makes me feel like I own Golden ducks who lay dollar bills for my family to enjoy.
Just to let you know the two Tufted Buff geese arrived today in perfect health, cheeky and plump. Thank you!
Than you for making this Birthday special. I see more ducks in the future.
