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.
I received my ducklings this morning! They made it to Orange, Texas at 5:41am and notified by 7:26am! The service of Metzer has been fantastic. It has been a great experience. Thank you so much for the awesome quacks!!
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.
We picked up our new arrivals at the post office this morning. We wanted you to know they arrived safely, active and took right to water and food. This is my first duck purchase, but I doubt it will be my last. Thank you for your great service in providing us with these babies.
I received my three little ducklings Wednesday and they were in perfect condition and in great health. I would recommend you to anyone planning on getting baby birds. Again thank you for our little Buttercup, Coco and Gypsy.
My two goslings and 8 ducklings arrived at my post office this morning, much to the entertainment of the PO staff. They arrived chirping, thirsty and ready to eat. They all look great and are frisky.
Letting you know that all three ducklings arrived safe and sound! They are very happy and healthy, love to cuddle. I have decided to name them Ingrid, Myrna, and Duke! Thank you so much for the ducklings! Much appreciated.
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.
I have never ordered any live waterfowl before so I entered the process rather reluctantly. My first call to your company quickly allayed all my fears and you patiently answered all my questions. Your customer service is exemplary.
Well John, you won me over. I've had my Golden 300 Hybrids since April and am in love with them. For a while, all 19 ducks were laying an egg a day. With the shorter days, I'm down to 13-15 eggs per day without any extra lighting.
I delightfully received my Sebastopol gosling and white crested ducking. They are so beautiful, strong and healthy. I want to thank you for your patience and advice when helping me choose my precious pets. The lady I spoke with was a tremendous help.
We had several questions we emailed you and they were quickly handled. We will definitely only buy our ducklings in the future from Metzer Farms!
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.
Just wanted to let you know the replacement Buff arrived with his travel partner safe and sound. I'm very grateful and you will definitely receive repeat business from us. As well as our recommendations to anyone I know shopping for a new hatchery.
Thank you for a lovely and lively batch of ducklings. This is our first batch of Rouens and we're looking forward to what looks to be a beautiful adult bird.
I've received two deliveries from you so far and I've been impressed with the quality of your birds. It's so nice to work with you and I just wanted to say thank you for that.
