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.
We received our baby ducks yesterday. They arrived on time and are so cute and adorable. Every one of them are active. As soon as we opened up the box, they tried to jump out. These ducks bring bundles of joy to us. Thank you so much and if we need more ducks, we will order from you guys.
Thanks for the great service! I have to be honest - I have given your name out many times to people simply because you guys provided me with great service and some great birds. I got exactly what I ordered, plus 3 extra! Well have a great day!
Thank you so much for being so efficient. I contacted a previous company who still even now hasn't replied so it's reassuring to know there are nice companies out there!
I do sincerely appreciate everyone at your farm taking time out of their busy day to always be kind enough to answer my questions. To get an answer back to me on this right away only shows your professionalism.
I received my three little ducklings Wednesday and they were in perfect condition and in great health. I would recommend you to anyone planning on getting baby birds. Again thank you for our little Buttercup, Coco and Gypsy.
I wanted to thank you for all your help and for answering my email questions quickly. Since this was my first time incubating eggs, I was a bit nervous to do it incorrectly. Of the 11 eggs you sent me, one was infertile and two quit within the first three days of incubation. All of the rest hatched wonderfully over a three day period and the babies are doing great!
I received my replacement ducklings yesterday. They are doing great. So are the ducklings that arrived last week (as well as the gosling). I love them! We have cuddle time twice a day. Thank you again for not only the quality of the birds you raise, but the quality of your company in general. Your company came highly recommended - and I will do my part in recommending you also.
I am so happy with my ducklings. They arrived yesterday morning. I got the call at 7am. All were lively and started eating and drinking immediately. I was very worried, being that it is January and we live in New Hampshire.
Just taking a moment to say thanks! All 10 made the trip just fine and are now eating and drinking like good little ducks. Only problem is before they arrived people had talked me out of 6 of them. Guess I should have ordered more!I have a feeling this is just a start:-)
From the research to ordering to shipment to now enjoying these little ducklings, it's been a great experience with Metzer Farms - thanks!
WOW!!! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!! My ducklings arrived, way quicker than expected, all very healthy ducklings, eating, drinking and playing with their new one week old Cayuga siblings! Thank you so much, again, you guys are AWESOME!!
Year after year, California ducklings leave Monday and arrive Wednesday at 8am like clock work. Thanks! Best waterfowl you can buy.
I got my ducklings this morning and they are absolutely beautiful and in great shape. Thank you so much for all of your help and please tell Ashley I said thanks to her too. You guys are the BEST!!! I love my little babies. I was afraid when I had them pinioned they would have a big hole in their wings but you can't even tell it! I was so happy to get them and see how healthy they are. Thanks again for all your help with this matter and for being such a great place to order from.
I ordered ten Khaki Campbell eggs from you. I'm on day eighteen of incubation and so far ten of the eggs are still developing perfectly. I just wanted to thank you for not only the fast shipping with amazing packaging but also for the excellent fertility rate! I will definitely be purchasing more eggs from you guys in the future!
I'm so impressed with y'all! I received my duck eggs two days after I ordered them. I just wanted to say thank you and that I'm really impressed!
