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.
They have exceeded expectations in health and quality, as usual!
Just wanted to let you know that I got 12 very healthy and active duckling this morning. They had consumed all of their Gro-Gel and were looking for food and water. Thank you very much. I was a little nervous about the shipping aspect, but they came right on time and this worked out great.
Thank you so much! I will definitely put out some reviews and good words for you around here. Thanks
All 24 ducklings arrived this morning healthy and ready to get out of their box. They all look perfect. Thank you guys!
The birds arrived in great(perfect!)condition this morning, thank you so much! I will definitely order from you again!
I received 5 healthy Muscovy ducklings this morning, thanks to all involved. They are doing fine.
The Golden 300 Hybrid started laying the third week in May and are now up to 8 eggs a day. We have had many comments on how handsome they are. Thanks again for the great ducks.
I have hatched and raised everything under the sun and always have 4 incubators going so it is nice to find a place I can trust when I need stuff.
I placed an order with you guys and received my ducklings this morning. Thank you so much for getting them to me so soon I love them they are adorable.
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!
I picked up my birds and they were all very well! The pair of Sebastopol geese have been the center of all the conversations with friends and family. Can't wait for them to grow up! Thank you so much for another wonderful hatch! Looking forward to many years of your birds
My ducks and goose made it to Arkansas...so cute...excited being first time duck and goose mama! Thank you!
We received your Mallard duckling shipment this morning, they look great and I would like to thank you. We appreciate your care and consistency in all that you do.
We ordered 3 Rouen ducklings from you just a few short weeks ago. Having no prior experience I was amazed at how rapidly they grew. Terri called me from her school where I had them shipped to with the news that they had arrived. I told her to open the box and let them see her and hear her voice and she would be their "mommy". Now they follow her around and get close to her when she is outside. They are truly amazing and such fun.
