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.
Hi, just informing that the ducks arrived early this am and seems to be fine. Thank you for doing a great job. We are looking forward to seeing them grow as family pets and producing eggs to feed our family.
We received our baby ducks yesterday. Very cute, beautiful and healthy. Very nice. Thank you.
I want to tell you about my pair of Gray Toulouse geese that will turn 13 years old on April 6th. They have been the most faithful geese to one another. The gander is a great guard to his goose and the goose is the best brooder and mother I have ever seen. They are both great parents. I've purchased them when I was 13 and now I'm 27. Better than any dog. Haha
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.
We want to let you know how pleased we are with our ducks, 4 Runners and 2 Welsh Harlequins. We received them on April 30, and they have been going strong ever since. We have had no problems at all and enjoy them every day. Right now they are averaging 5 eggs per day.
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.
For all intents and purposes, Metzer Farms waterfowl is superior to all the other large hatcheries in the USA.
Thank you for the ducklings. They arrived this morning and are the most active and happy looking ones I've had shipped.
Thank you for taking the time to reply to my fax of 4/14/09. The quickness of your response along with the detail of explanation shows a dedication to customer satisfaction seldom seen these days. My compliments again to your customer service staff. I am new to this and they have been informative, patient, and extremely helpful every time I have called.
Hello from Minot North Dakota. We just wanted to thank you for our ducklings they arrived as said and in great health.
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.
The ducks I have purchased from you over the years have brought my family and I so much joy! Especially me and our young granddaughters. Thank you for the care you take in shipping these babies across the country to provide such happiness!
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.
Hello I just wanted to give a huge thank you to Metzer Farms and staff. My four black female Swedish ducklings arrived this morning and are in great condition. They are all running around happy and healthy!
