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.
Thank you very much really like the birds. They are enjoying themselves, eating, drinking and sleeping under the lamp. Thanks again.
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!
Just wanted to let you know that our ducklings arrived safe and sound and, of course, cute as can be. I appreciate the "extra helping" of 2-very kind of you!! They are all chowing down and quite active so I'll take that as a good sign.
I learned it is more beneficial to order from hatcheries that specialize in specific types of birds. In your case it appears you have much better breeding stock which gives babies that are more capable of with standing the rigors of postal travel.
Just received my two female Pekin ducklings this morning. They arrived in perfect condition. Both very healthy and happy babies. Thank you very much. Will order from you again!
I received my pair each of Toulouse and Brown Chinese geese in early April. We have enjoyed every moment with them and are having fun watching their feathers come in and their confidence grow. I wanted to say thank you for the safe delivery of healthy birds, and all of the great advice and information your website provides. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for waterfowl!
I picked them up this morning and found two happy, hungry, and thirsty ducklings! They were packed very well. Thank you!
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.
Knowing exactly what dates our ducks would be hatching and then shipped made the ordering process the most seamless I've ever done with any business. It truly was a pleasure doing business with the Metzer Farm Family and I look forward to doing business with you again.
Ordered 2 female ducklings and they arrived safe and sound. Will be ordering from you if I need anymore in the future.
So happy with the Welsh Harlequin ducklings I received today. Shipped across the country, entire order is still alive and very sassy :)
You always seem to have everything organized and ready to go out when customers want it. I have referred other people to this wonderful business; you deserve lifelong customers such as us and many others!
I got my six babies early!! Thanks so much for getting them to me perfectly fine.They are happy as can be and tall robust little Indian Runners. I've already mentioned Metzer Farms to a couple people. Also thanks for the great customer service and answering my questions Ashley!
Many, many thanks for the wonderful, amazing and outstanding geese. I adore them! They are the most personable geese I've ever been around.
