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 drop in and say I ordered a Buff trio and 2 Welsh Harlequin ducks from you and I could not be happier! They are growing up very nice! I will buy again. Thank you!
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.
Thank you very much for being a pleasure to work with. My ducklings arrived Wednesday morning, just as you said, all healthy but jetlagged - ready for a brooder and a good meal. I wanted to thank you for excellent customer service from Kelly, who I had the pleasure of speaking with a couple times. She was very reassuring to me. Keep doing what you are doing!
We are so thankful to have had such great experience in watching our geese grow. It has been such a joy! They are well and happy..my husband and I raised two great guys. We settled down a bit now and this has just been such joy to us!!
My geese arrived to my farm in Ky. on the last date you said they would almost a month ago. All of them were strong and healthy, not a weak one in the bunch. I am thankful that you have such a wonderful service and geese. If asked. I will highly recommend you and I will definitely order from you again.
I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know my geese arrived this morning healthy, happy and ready to go! They are doing wonderfully and have the greatest little personalities! Thank you for my beautiful babies!
I just wanted to let you know that my duck hatching eggs arrived this morning in perfect condition! And am so far very pleased with the service you have provided me! Thank you so much! I will be ordering from you in the future for sure!
Hello!! I wanted to send a message letting you know 2 of our Khaki Campbell ducklings arrived today in perfect condition! Thank you so much!!! They are precious as can be and will make a wonderful addition to our tiny flock.
Birds arrived in great shape. Best delivery I have ever had. Thanks
We received our Cayuga ducklings yesterday and they are so amazingly perfect...my goodness. I swore I wasn't adding any birds this year....but their perfection had me setting up my brooder last night!
Well John, you won me over. I've had my Golden 300 Hybrids since April and am in love with them. For a while, all 19 ducks were laying an egg a day. With the shorter days, I'm down to 13-15 eggs per day without any extra lighting.
Our baby goslings arrived before 8:00am this morning. My husband went right down to get them. I gotta tell you he was like a little kid at Christmas!! By the way he's 68!! To say he was pleased with them, is an understatement! Thank you so much!!
Metzer Farms has always provided exceptional service and quality birds to us, with much concern and fore thought about the health and well being of their precious babies.
I just wanted to post a testimonial on your website. I ordered 10 ducklings and they arrived happy and healthy. This is the first time I've ordered from a hatchery and I'm very pleased with my new baby ducklings.
