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 ducklings arrived happy & healthy. As always I am thrilled with the ducks I get from you. We always get many compliments on the ducks we have at our herding trials. Great product and awesome service!
Received my replacement Buff goslings today, all is well. Many thanks to you all again! I recommend you guys to everyone who has complimented our birds!
My recent order of duck eggs arrived in perfect condition - no scrambled eggs! I love your packaging. Will try the jumbo duck eggs in the future just to try. Thank you.
I love Metzer Farms, they are great. My Metzer group of geese is larger and more robust.
I am in Anna, Texas and this was my first order with Metzer. My ducklings arrived early yesterday morning. They were all accounted for without a loss. I am pleased with my experience! I look forward to making future orders with Metzer Farms. I have spread the word about your family farm and will continue to do so!
I just wanted to say thank you! I am a first time buyer with you all and your customer service is excellent. I bought some Mallard eggs to hatch and they all arrived perfect. I incubated 4 duck eggs for the first time and all hatched healthy and happy. They are adorable. I could not have done it without you all.
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.
The heating pad, cup of "something" and the over-all health of the birds, gives your company an A+ rating in my opinion.
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!!
Thank you so much for your help this whole week. I know I've been bombarding you with emails and questions, but I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your quick responses.
They arrived today! Here's a big THANK YOU! from the kids. They are excited!
I heard of Metzer Farms through a podcast of a couple years ago. Next year we are thinking of adding geese to the farm! We appreciate the work of Metzer Farms!
Ducks arrived this morning at 6:45 and they are adorable. I have to admit I was skeptical about mail ordering ducks, but the whole thing went off without a hitch! They are a nice addition to our growing urban flock:-) Thank you!
Most of your testimonials are from new owners, but we wanted you to know that years later, we still appreciate the help and advice on breed selection and if I could convince my partner to get a third goose, you will have our business again.
I picked up the duckling order from the post office this morning. All 12 were acting very alert and vigorous! I am very pleased that they were so active and that everything went smoothly with the post office. Thank you for your attention to detail, instructions on the website and on the back of the invoice are a nice touch.
