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.
This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you.
The geese are here to help prevent raven attacks on the ducks and the three of us act like a well-oiled machine. They warn me of raven presence, I run and chase them off and we all three yell at the raven. We have had no attacks on any duck since the geese went outside.
After a little panicking, I got a call on day 3 that my babies were here! I was expecting some losses...but when I peeled back the lid..I had 10 unhappy (who wouldn't be after that trip) but healthy ducklings squinting into the light! We got home and they got settled into their brooder, started drinking right away and are running around, happy to be done with their travels!
Thank you so much for the awesome birds. You have amazing customer service and I'm so thrilled with my two new additions to my flock. They are both healthy and quaking. Again thank you so much.
I am very pleased with my experience with you guys at Metzer Farms and would like to thank you for your extraordinary work.
I just wanted to let you know that my goslings arrived right on time yesterday and that I could not be more happy!! I was worried about the fact that they were having to travel from California all the way to North Georgia; it turns out that I worried for nothing. They arrived in perfect shape and full of energy!!!!
A huge thank you for the wonderful ducklings I've received from you over the last two years. They have brought us so much JOY and purpose.
We received our ducklings and goslings last Wednesday at the post office. They came in great shape and are healthy and happy. I'm so thrilled with them. They are growing nicely and we will order again from you.
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!
They traveled well and they have made mine and my family's lives even better. I will recommend you to everyone and I will praise your company's name every chance I get. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Earlier in the year, we bought 4 of your Embden goslings from a person that ordered 60+ goslings from you. Again, healthy as can be. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
I received 5 healthy Muscovy ducklings this morning, thanks to all involved. They are doing fine.
Thank you so much for the ducklings. All arrived well and they are happy. The crests look really good.
They have exceeded expectations in health and quality, as usual!
