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 am here to tell you that your Blue Swedish ducks are FANTASTIC. The show I went to was the Rocky Mountain Feather Fanciers show in Brighton, CO. I ended up winning reserve medium duck for the futurity part of the show, but in the traditional I ended up winning Champ Medium duck, Champ Showmanship in the senior division, and Champion waterfowl by a JR.
Hello. Thank you for your excellent service. The ducks and geese arrived in great shape and they are still doing fine. The postal service did a good job delivering them. Thank you for the extra birds.
My two male Rouen ducklings arrived this morning! I was so nervous because we are having a cold front here in Florida and the temp dropped down to 45 last night...But, both arrived happy and healthy, drinking and eating right away.
I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs. Only 1 perished on the trip and the rest seem happy, healthy and very vibrant. I am very thrilled! Thank you again for the wonderful ducklings!! All your help was greatly appreciated!!
The birds arrived in great(perfect!)condition this morning, thank you so much! I will definitely order from you again!
The ducklings we purchased from you are so healthy and active, we are SUPER HAPPY! Thank you for such wonderful babies :-) We love them LOTS!
This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you.
Thank you so much, I received my small order of four baby ducks on Tuesday. They are all eating and drinking and are so cute, what great service! Perfect for the small flock family. Next time will be some Runner ducks
Thank you for all you have done. I appreciate your professionalism and consideration. Both babies arrived in excellent condition and are doing well. You went above others I have bought from.
We have had our ducklings for 12 days now and what a joy they are!! Thank you soooo much!!
We got our baby Welsh Harlequin ducks, Buff geese, and Buff duck this morning at the Lynden post office. they arrived in perfect shape, all bright eyed and bushy tailed. What a happy bunch! Thank for another group of quality ducks and geese..
Thank you for the ducklings. They arrived this morning and are the most active and happy looking ones I've had shipped.
I recently ordered duck eggs from your company and was a little worried. Rest assured you went above and beyond my expectations! I ordered 16 assorted duck eggs. Of those 16, 10 hatched.
We ordered 10 ducklings from you just last week-they arrived quickly, and we were so happy to open the box and find beautiful, healthy virile babies.
I heard of Metzer Farms through a podcast of a couple years ago. Next year we are thinking of adding geese to the farm! We appreciate the work of Metzer Farms!
