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.
I just wanted to say thank you for sending our lovely ducklings and goslings. They arrived safe and sound early yesterday morning and were very lively and ready for their adventure. Again thank you so much.
My order arrived healthy and vigorous!! Excellent work AGAIN!! Many thanks.
Successful delivery! THANK YOU!! I'm in love!
Got my 8 Tufted Buff and 10 Buff ducklings on Wednesday. They all made it to Illinois in fine shape and are doing great.
My beautiful Embden name Borris and Henrietta, they are so loving and talkative.... school time they were there to get the babies off the bus. They lay down near you while your outside. I have conversations with my geese. They talk to me all the time. I love them so much.
Thanks for the great service! I have to be honest - I have given your name out many times to people simply because you guys provided me with great service and some great birds. I got exactly what I ordered, plus 3 extra! Well have a great day!
Got my six goslings this morning. They came in wonderful condition. Already ate some yard grass, feed and water. Thank you very much for your kindness! Next spring when you hatch some more, I will want more goslings. Thank you very much!
I got my ducks on April 18th and they have provided me so much joy and a lot of entertainment. They are all such good quality and you guys have helped me so much for a first time duck owner!
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!
Very impressive on your way of customer services and also website information. It gives us full of support for our first try of waterfowl raising.
We are happy to say that all of our little ducklings arrived happy and active even after a trip across the chilly country. They came out of the box ready to take on the world!
I have been searching for goose eggs since leaving the Netherlands years ago. I am delighted. The eggs arrived in beautiful condition and will become my "canvas" for hand painted Christmas memories!
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 have three female Khaki Campbell ducks, two of which wanted to sit on eggs. 11 of the 13 eggs you sent hatched and the mamas are now co-parenting the brood. So fun to watch all three of them with babies!
