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.
The ducklings arrived in excellent condition. Thank you very much for all you have done for me. I can't say thank you enough. From time to time I will let you know of their progress.
These ducks I have are so much better than the laying hens I've had previously, with higher production, stronger egg shells, and larger egg sizes.
Out of the 10 fertile eggs we had 6 hatch yesterday. 3 Cayugas and 3 Welsh Harlequins. We kept one of each and re-homed the others. Thank you for providing the eggs which gave us an amazing experience!
We received our 2 Blue Swedish babies just over two weeks ago, and I just wanted to thank you and give you an update on them. They arrived healthy and happy and are doing really well as an addition to our backyard farm with our 4 month old Mallard.
My babies just arrived today, Tuesday 9:45am! Post office is fast! Thank you so much, they're beautiful and healthy! I've named them Coco & Ginger :-)
I would like to encourage all of you, if you have questions to check out Metzer Farms website. I have had a few questions and they have always responded. Their website has been very helpful both personally and professionally.
Our ducklings came today and they are ADORABLE! Just wanted to say thanks for brightening our quarantine, the boys are so excited to watch their ducklings grow. Gave your website to several friends who saw how cute they are via social media and have asked how we got them by mail, lol.
We got our ducks today and were very energetic and happy when we picked them up at the post office this morning. Thanks for customer service over the last 3 months as we prepared for the new family pets.
I have had good experience with Metzer Farms. I also have had questions about my ducks that they were quick to answer and they even asked the owner of Metzer Farms for me. They were very helpful.
Great place for ducks, it's where I send everyone for ducks that call me, thanks John for your commitment to excellent ducks and great customer service.
Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office.
I am delighted to inform you that all 11 Rouen baby ducks made it safely all the way out to North Attleboro, MA. My young children can't believe how awake and animated they are. They are all eating food and drinking water and are just now settling down to rest in their new brooder home in the vicinity of the heat lamp. Job well done and thank you. We will definitely be ordering from you in the future.
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.
Thank you for helping us. I am truly grateful for you expertise and service after sale!
Ducklings arrived early this morning and were very busy drinking and eating and they are now napping. They are beautiful, healthy and I'm very happy with them. Thank you very much.
