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.
We recently ordered 5 ducklings from you. You shipped on August 10th and they arrived in Sioux Falls, SD on the evening of the 11th! Our distribution center called us and we picked up 5 healthy ducklings. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
I am pleased with your high operating standards and the customer care I experienced. I want to say a special thank you to Ashley for alerting me when I made an error in ordering. You dealt with me professionally and I am another very satisfied customer.
This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you.
Great place for ducks, it's where I send everyone for ducks that call me, thanks John for your commitment to excellent ducks and great customer service.
The 3 Runners arrived alert and in great shape. I am so pleased with how they were packaged. I give you a great review. Thank you!
This is my second time ordering ducks from your farm. So happy with both orders. Thank you for making it so easy and offering such beautiful healthy ducks.
We received our 2 Blue Swedish babies just over two weeks ago, and I just wanted to thank you and give you an update on them. They arrived healthy and happy and are doing really well as an addition to our backyard farm with our 4 month old Mallard.
All were strong and lively (and noisy and eager to eat and play in water) on arrival and thrived from the start. This has been such a pleasant experience. I am going to place an additional order for Runner ducklings. I have recommended you to everyone I meet who is interested in ducks, geese or turkeys.
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.
Our baby goslings arrived before 8:00am this morning. My husband went right down to get them. I gotta tell you he was like a little kid at Christmas!! By the way he's 68!! To say he was pleased with them, is an understatement! Thank you so much!!
After speaking to one of your employees on the phone however, they were able to work with me and find a much closer ship date! I can't wait to receive my new babies! I will be referring Metzer Farms to all of my poultry friends!
Knowing exactly what dates our ducks would be hatching and then shipped made the ordering process the most seamless I've ever done with any business. It truly was a pleasure doing business with the Metzer Farm Family and I look forward to doing business with you again.
We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. We couldn't believe how productive they are. We were getting 5 eggs a day through the coldest part of the year, when the chickens weren't laying as well. These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do.
They arrived today! Here's a big THANK YOU! from the kids. They are excited!
Just wanted to say thank you!! I received my babies this morning and they are all doing great!
