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 got my ducks on April 18th and they have provided me so much joy and a lot of entertainment. They are all such good quality and you guys have helped me so much for a first time duck owner!
I got my babies at 8:05 Alabama time this morning and I cannot thank you enough!I am over joyed. The baby geese are adorable and we call them our "Little Buntins". Everything is going so well and I just had to send a big THANK YOU to you all there at Metzer Farms.
Ducks arrived this morning. All are alive and vocal. Thank you everyone for your help.
I just wanted to thank you so much for the goslings we got from you last week. They are perfect. They all got here safe and sound. I will be ordering from you again in the future. Thank you so much!
Just wanted to say thank you very much for the babies, your quick response in the change of shipping dates and the overall process - it was a breeze! I truly appreciate everything and so happy with your product and service - I will be sure to recommend you!!
All ducks arrived safe and sound. Your company is amazing. Thanks once again.
Most of your testimonials are from new owners, but we wanted you to know that years later, we still appreciate the help and advice on breed selection and if I could convince my partner to get a third goose, you will have our business again.
My ducklings arrived on schedule, and were in perfect condition. I just wanted to say thank you and that your ordering/shipping procedures are very proficient. Thanks again.
I received my order at 9:00am this morning. All 10-exactly what I ordered. All extremely active and alert. They ate and drank immediately and are finally settled down taking a nap. I am very very satisfied with how my order went with you guys. Thanks so much.
They arrived today! Here's a big THANK YOU! from the kids. They are excited!
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 love Metzer Farms, they are great. My Metzer group of geese is larger and more robust.
What started as a couple of ducks for fun has become a passion, hobby, way of life for us. And it is something my husband and I can enjoy together. We adore our babies. Thanks to you our pond is filled with love and feathers!
I had to let you folks know how very pleased I am. Your hatchery delivered on every promise made. The ducklings arrived energetic, hungry, and thirsty as can be. Healthy little females just as I'd hope for. I will be buying more waterfowl, game fowl, with confidence they are healthy. Thank you for your care, even for a small order such as mine.
