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.
My geese arrived to my farm in Ky. on the last date you said they would almost a month ago. All of them were strong and healthy, not a weak one in the bunch. I am thankful that you have such a wonderful service and geese. If asked. I will highly recommend you and I will definitely order from you again.
I just wanted to say how happy I am that ordering my eggs and receiving them was so quick and easy. I am so excited for this batch of eggs to hatch! I will definitely be a returning customer for my poultry needs. Thanks again!
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!!!!
I placed an order with you guys and received my ducklings this morning. Thank you so much for getting them to me so soon I love them they are adorable.
I just wanted you to know that we just completed the Provincial APA show and District International Waterfowl Breeders Show at the Coombs Fair in British Columbia. A young Pekin duck that I got from you this spring won the Show Champion. The judge was extremely impressed with all the birds in their composition. I have been competing for 5 years in the APA and this is the first time I have ever seen a standard duck place in either Show Champion or Reserve.
I just got my order of ducklings! All 5 of my ladies were in AMAZING health and vitality! Thank you so much! I couldn't wait to get them from the post office, I was there at 5:30....they were just peeping away in their box!! Thanks for your care and quality!!
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!!
Just wanted to say thank you very much for the babies, your quick response in the change of shipping dates and the overall process - it was a breeze! I truly appreciate everything and so happy with your product and service - I will be sure to recommend you!!
The way ya'll are packing birds is great. Saving a lot on shipping cost. Thank you all very much. Healthy birds, great service and tech support, we couldn't ask for better partners in the duck business!!
I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future.
Let me just compliment you on your Cornish Cross chickens. I have always held you guys up as the premier duck hatchery. Let me just say that these birds have outperformed any hatchery I have brought from in the last few years. These birds are huge and unaffected by the Summer heat. I look forward to continuing to order ducks as well as chickens from you all. Thank you!
We recently purchased eight Indian Runner ducklings from you. We just wanted to say that they all arrived safe and healthy. We were concerned about their trip across the country, but thanks to you and your wonderful packaging, they all made it safe and sound!
I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am that I am dealing with honest people who sent me these eggs. I think it's important for you to know that you brought happiness to someone who has been struggling to find it due to a sickness that I can not control.
Just wanted to let you know that I got 12 very healthy and active duckling this morning. They had consumed all of their Gro-Gel and were looking for food and water. Thank you very much. I was a little nervous about the shipping aspect, but they came right on time and this worked out great.
All the ducklings and goslings you arrived in great shape and alive. they have remained alive and full of energy and interest in their world.
