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 ducks arrived and are doing great! That was nice of ya'll!! I'll recommend ya'll to my friends when they get some ducks.
My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
I received my 7 ducklings this morning , and all in great health, active, thirsty and happy to be in a bigger container. Thanks for the great service, and excellent packing.
Just received my two female Pekin ducklings this morning. They arrived in perfect condition. Both very healthy and happy babies. Thank you very much. Will order from you again!
The goslings arrived in perfect condition! I cannot begin to tell you the delight I felt when I opened the box and saw all those sweet faces looking back at me. The goslings are healthy, flourishing and growing by leaps and bounds.
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.
Just wanted to let you know that I got 12 very healthy and active duckling this morning. They had consumed all of their Gro-Gel and were looking for food and water. Thank you very much. I was a little nervous about the shipping aspect, but they came right on time and this worked out great.
