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.
Your strain of Guineas are of very high quality and consistently are at the top of classes in shows.

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.
I placed an order with you in May of this year. I was so very nervous, however with the wealth of information on your website and the great condition the babies were in, they are now just about fully feathered. I am so happy with the quality and great health of these birds. I will be placing another order in the spring of 2017. A huge thank you and you get 12 out of 10 stars for your service, bird care and breeding.
We received 27 beautiful healthy Khaki Campbells this morning. All are doing so well. Thank you from Tuscon!
Thank you again for another perfect order. All 3 of my Buff ducklings are happy and healthy. Good and fast shipping to Ohio.
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.
HI-the ducklings are in their new home in Simi Valley and are doing great! It has been a big day for them and every so often I see them taking a little nap. If I hear of anyone wanting to buy or raise ducklings, I am referring you. Again-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 will definitely let all my followers on FB who follow my ducks know what a wonderful hatchery you all are! Thank you for sending me hope. We could all use a little hope, even if it's in the form of an egg.
This past June, I ordered 6 Hybrid 300 from you. I just wanted to contact you and tell you how amazing these birds are!! They started laying in October and have given me 6 eggs a day!! They stopped just for two days in early January when we had very cold temps, but now they are back laying, and I swear, their eggs keep getting bigger!! The taste of these eggs are amazing! Again, thank you for wonderful livestock!!
We received our order invoice 189821. Three ducklings arrived in excellent condition. Our four kids and us are very excited and happy with the ducks received from Metzer Farms. The transportation box and accommodations are impressive. These ducks are very active and curious....wonderful. Thank you Metzer Farms.
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.
I received my precious little ducklings this morning. Oh my goodness they are so adorable. They love to be loved. They are so full of energy. I'm excited about raising them. Thank you so much for my beautiful ducklings.
I just wanted to personally thank you guys for shipping my ducks safely! They are beautiful!
