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.
Received ducks on Wednesday, healthy and happy. Thanks for the new additions to our flock. May order more in the Spring. Have a great winter.
I like to make it a point to tell a business when I am pleased with their service. I really appreciate your focus on customer service and I will not only order many more birds from you, I will refer other people to your company.
The baby goslings I received from you folks are doing great. Active, talkative and very alert. They are all, if not even more than what I expected. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to raise these heritage breeds. Keep up the great work.
The ball ducks arrived today. They are settling into their new home. The family loves them and everyone is eating and drinking great. We are so excited to start our duck journey!
Thank you, they all arrived early this am - 100% alive and chiriping. Thanks again!
The ten ducks I ordered came in all alive and well. This is not the first time we ordered from Metzer. My husband will not order his ducks from anyone but Metzer, great company! very satisfied customer!
Thank you so much for all of your kindness and help. I'm taking measures now to test and fix the incubator. Thank you for everything.
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.
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.
Thank you for my order of 3 baby ducks. They're beautiful.
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!!
Received order no problem what so ever. Always a pleasure doing business with you. Third year with no issues.
I received my shipment of 30 blown goose eggs today. They were packed beautifully and in very good shape! I was very impressed with the outstanding condition of the eggs and how clean they were. I will certainly order from you again!
We picked up 12 healthy looking babies from the post office this morning. The delay was no problem especially when receiving such fine birds. Many thanks for a job well done by the Metzer team!
