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 let you know that my goslings arrived right on time yesterday and that I could not be more happy!! I was worried about the fact that they were having to travel from California all the way to North Georgia; it turns out that I worried for nothing. They arrived in perfect shape and full of energy!!!!
Our ducklings arrived today all the way in South Carolina and we had no losses! All 12 are doing great. Also, I dealt with Ashley about my credit card not working, and she was super nice and helpful! Thanks for everything. I will definitely tell others about you all.
I appreciate the wonderful customer service. You are an excellent company to work with and I will continue to buy waterfowl from you and recommend you to anyone who asks!
My beautiful Embden name Borris and Henrietta, they are so loving and talkative.... school time they were there to get the babies off the bus. They lay down near you while your outside. I have conversations with my geese. They talk to me all the time. I love them so much.
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.
This is my first year raising waterfowl and the birds seem to be off to a roaring start. I'm certainly taken with goslings...they seem to be such characters!
Successful delivery! THANK YOU!! I'm in love!
Thank you, thank you, and thank you. We just picked them up from the post office and they are alive and happy. I appreciate the tracking information and thanks to that was able to coordinate with the post office to get them safely home. I'll definitely be returning on any future purchases and thank you again.
Thank you so much for the two wonderful African goslings we purchased from you. They arrived healthy and happy and are such a delight each day.
I ordered 4 Muscovy ducklings. I was apprehensive because 1. I've never mail ordered live animals before and 2. I live on the East Coast. I just received them this morning. Let me tell you, they are happy, healthy, and cute as a button! A dream come true for my 15 year old step daughter.
Let me just compliment you on your Cornish Cross chickens. I have always held you guys up as the premier duck hatchery. Let me just say that these birds have outperformed any hatchery I have brought from in the last few years. These birds are huge and unaffected by the Summer heat. I look forward to continuing to order ducks as well as chickens from you all. Thank you!
We bought 10 Welsh Harlequin duck eggs from you a couple of years ago. Arrived in Alaska beautifully and 10 were fertile (you sent 12). Almost 3 years later, we have adored our ducks and this breed is the sweetest.
I ordered a trio of French Toulouse from you in June of this year. I just wanted to write and tell you how impressed I am with them! They arrived all bright eyed and running around. They had devoured every single piece of grogel in the box.
I just wanted to let you know I received the ducklings and goslings today! They were wonderful and cute! I love all 24 of them. They arrived healthy and active. Thank you so much! I will definitely order other breeds from you next time.
Our absolute favorite duck for small scale duck egg production is the White Layer that we purchase from Metzers. We have only had wonderful experiences ordering from you all, thank you.
