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 just wanted to say "Thank you" to Metzer Farms for outstanding customer service! You have a customer for life and I will be returning to purchase all my eggs from you in the future! Have a Great Day!
Hello, Just wanted to let you know the 4 geese made it in fine condition, & to Thank you for your excellent service!!!
The duck eggs were an experiment to see if there was enough interest - there is, it seems that many people have an allergy to chicken eggs but not duck eggs. Anyway, I would like to order more of the White Layers early next year.
I just wanted to say I ordered fertile duck eggs from your farm - they are all fertile. I am very happy with the eggs the farm sent me. I will tell others about how great the farm is.
Received ducks on Wednesday, healthy and happy. Thanks for the new additions to our flock. May order more in the Spring. Have a great winter.
They traveled well and they have made mine and my family's lives even better. I will recommend you to everyone and I will praise your company's name every chance I get. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
On March 11th I received replacement Guineas which were all very much alive and well. I would like to thank Ashley and everyone at Metzer Farms for what turned out to be a very positive experience.
I received my ducklings las Wednesday. They all (3 Buff and 5 Runner ducks) arrived in great shape-strong, alert and active. Thank you for providing such wonderful and entertaining little ducks.
Everyone loves duck eggs here, especially the duck hunters. Everyone should know by now that some of the more famous bakeries use duck eggs and if you want a good holandaise sauce, there's no other egg that compares.
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.
Thank you, you guys are always a class-operation.
Our daughters will be showing at the fair this next fall and I know with this flock they will place well. Hope to deal with you again as we continue to expand our flock.
The ducklings arrived this morning and all appear to be in great shape. Thank you so much. You folks rock!
Hello!! I wanted to send a message letting you know 2 of our Khaki Campbell ducklings arrived today in perfect condition! Thank you so much!!! They are precious as can be and will make a wonderful addition to our tiny flock.
I have never left a review before with any business but we are so happy with our baby ducks that I just had to this time. We are madly in love with our new family members! Lol. Our ducks are so healthy, sweet and precious. They have brought so much joy to us I just had to say THANK YOU!!
