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.
Eggs arrived yesterday! So fast and so beautiful. Clearly labeled. Thank you! I can't say enough good things about you guys! From phone order to hatching!
Your ducks are right at twice as big in virtually the same number of weeks as the previous ducks I was raising. You have some very impressive duck genetics. Very happy customer: Keep up the good work.
I just wanted you to know that Bruce and Irene gosling arrived healthy and strong yesterday. Already loved by the young girl that wanted them.
Thank you so much for all of your kindness and help. I'm taking measures now to test and fix the incubator. Thank you for everything.
The book i ordered on raising geese arrived today...just two days after ordering!! If this order were on eBay, your feedback from me woudl be five stars!!
I recently ordered some goose and duck eggs from you and would like you to know they arrived perfectly intact and looked beautiful. I am in the process of writing an egg decorating craft book and wanted to let you know that I will be listing you as one of the best suppliers of eggs.
They were wonderful with info and patience when trying to figure out regarding another mate for Hamilton...not like Metzer Farms didn't have other important things to do. I even drove down after work to pick up ElizaRose they set aside for me.
Thank you so much for the awesome birds. You have amazing customer service and I'm so thrilled with my two new additions to my flock. They are both healthy and quaking. Again thank you so much.
Earlier in the year, we bought 4 of your Embden goslings from a person that ordered 60+ goslings from you. Again, healthy as can be. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you!
I received 5 Silver Appleyard ducklings two days ago. I just wanted to let you know that they arrived safely and they are the sweetest little birds! They are all healthy, eating, drinking and of course pooping like crazy. Thanks for my feathery cuties!
Another order from Metzer and another successful delivery. 4 baby girls doing well, 2 Rouens and 2 Blue Swedish.Thank you for all the healthy beautiful ducks we have gotten from you.
I just wanted to drop a note to say how pleased I am with the geese and duck I received. One duck did die the day they arrived, (you offered to replace her, but I declined) but the others are growing well and are very friendly! If my husband ever agrees to more geese, I will definitely order them from you!
All ducks arrived safe and sound. Your company is amazing. Thanks once again.
Since two weeks I am searching in the www and doesn't find duck farmers in Europe. I think Mr. Metzer, Sir, you should start a duck farm in Europe too. Europe needs entrepreneurs in your business with your knowledge
