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.
After I had ordered your eggs I read a lot about the potential negative side of trying to hatch shipped eggs. It made me worry that I should've tried local eggs first. But your excellent packing job and healthy eggs has shown me that it is possible if done correctly.
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.
Thank you so much for the two wonderful African goslings we purchased from you. They arrived healthy and happy and are such a delight each day.
My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
I was given 5 White Crested ducklings a friend of mine purchased from you. Owen, my only White Crested drake, won Reserve Champion Overall Waterfowl, and the females were first through fourth in the same class, they also won the best flock of waterfowl in the county! I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl.
Hello just wanted to say my ducks arrived safe and sound. Just wanted to say they are so cute that I am glad I got them from you guys. Thank you very much!
Goose and Gander are also very nice birds to live with while Gander is more protective. Goose will approach and sit with me and Gander will also reluctantly settle close to you but he takes his job of guard very seriously.
We LOVE our geese, and were very happy with the way they arrived. It was our first experience in having birds shipped and I was more than a little nervous. I promise to contact you at the end of the year.
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!
The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
I wanted to thank you for our beautiful new birds! They are all lively and active, and appear very healthy. We look forward to working with you in the future.
We love our Cayuga ducks and Buff geese we got from you. They are growing like crazy and are just gorgeous. Thank you again for your excellent service.
I have hatched and raised everything under the sun and always have 4 incubators going so it is nice to find a place I can trust when I need stuff.
They provided a perfect example for others to follow by putting Service into their customer service. I am very pleased in how things worked out, and just wanted to say kudos for a job well done.
The ducklings arrived this morning and all appear to be in great shape. Thank you so much. You folks rock!
