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 wanted to say thank you to your farm. I have ordered, hatched, and raised from numerous placed including hatching and raising my own birds. Most companies are all about getting paid and no customer service or gratitude to the customer. Your farm is the opposite of most places and I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for animals you have.
My baby ducklings(Surfin" Babies) arrived this morning on schedule. They were very active and peeping. The post office was impressed with the packaging and the ducklings, as was I. Looking forward to purchasing others and giving you thumbs up.
I picked them up this morning and found two happy, hungry, and thirsty ducklings! They were packed very well. Thank you!
I ordered a duckling and gosling..I really need a goose to hang out with my ducks at home. I would have purchased more, but it's really tight with fulough. Thank you people so much for continuing your business yet again!
Just wanted to let you know the ducklings arrived this morning and all were well. They were eating and drinking almost immediately after I took them out of the box. Thank you for the nice selection and for the extra baby.
I received my 6 new ducklings in perfect shape! They are all healthy and happy. Eating, sleeping and running around. I ordered Welsh Harlequin's. First time ordering from you and am very pleased.
My wife and I have ordered ducks from you every year since 2005. We have been extremely happy with our ducks that we have ordered from you. They are the best and always turn out to be happy and friendly ducks with lots of personality.
After I had ordered your eggs I read a lot about the potential negative side of trying to hatch shipped eggs. It made me worry that I should've tried local eggs first. But your excellent packing job and healthy eggs has shown me that it is possible if done correctly.
We love our Cayuga ducks and Buff geese we got from you. They are growing like crazy and are just gorgeous. Thank you again for your excellent service.
I'm beyond happy with my order of Cayugas I received yesterday. I was a bit worried since I was on the wait list since June for these babies but after getting them home, they are lively & immediately took to drinking/eating. Thanks so much for the time and effort put into your ducks that's behind scenes and goes unnoticed. I'm very impressed with this order and will order again in the Spring!
I received my 11 ducklings Wednesday, 6/5, after being hatched Monday morning 6/3. Two day shipment to my home in Panama, New York is great!! All 11 baby ducklings arrived healthy and lively, and remain that way.
I am delighted to inform you that all 11 Rouen baby ducks made it safely all the way out to North Attleboro, MA. My young children can't believe how awake and animated they are. They are all eating food and drinking water and are just now settling down to rest in their new brooder home in the vicinity of the heat lamp. Job well done and thank you. We will definitely be ordering from you in the future.
I'm very happy with my order. All ducks and drakes made it alive. Top notch service. Thank you very much.
I purchased seven Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you in April and I just want to say they are beautiful birds and I am enjoying them so much! Thank you!
I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain. More than anything, your advice game me confidence about raising my goslings, calming, helpful and kind people like you are wonderful. Ashley, you are a blessing for "newbies" like myself.
