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 have hatched and raised everything under the sun and always have 4 incubators going so it is nice to find a place I can trust when I need stuff.
Many, many thanks for the wonderful, amazing and outstanding geese. I adore them! They are the most personable geese I've ever been around.
My order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
I received my ducklings and they were active and healthy. So glad to get them and bring them home. I followed the instructions and they started to drink and eat very quickly.
I want to tell you about my pair of Gray Toulouse geese that will turn 13 years old on April 6th. They have been the most faithful geese to one another. The gander is a great guard to his goose and the goose is the best brooder and mother I have ever seen. They are both great parents. I've purchased them when I was 13 and now I'm 27. Better than any dog. Haha
Ducklings arrived early this morning and were very busy drinking and eating and they are now napping. They are beautiful, healthy and I'm very happy with them. Thank you very much.
I am taking the time to let you know I am pleased with your service, great prices, and organization. I love how when the post office messes something up with my order, you take responsibility and make it right by replacing or refunding any birds that did not make it.
We ordered 3 Rouen ducklings from you just a few short weeks ago. Having no prior experience I was amazed at how rapidly they grew. Terri called me from her school where I had them shipped to with the news that they had arrived. I told her to open the box and let them see her and hear her voice and she would be their "mommy". Now they follow her around and get close to her when she is outside. They are truly amazing and such fun.
I am so happy with my ducklings. They arrived yesterday morning. I got the call at 7am. All were lively and started eating and drinking immediately. I was very worried, being that it is January and we live in New Hampshire.
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!
Metzer Farms has always provided exceptional service and quality birds to us, with much concern and fore thought about the health and well being of their precious babies.
I'm so impressed with y'all! I received my duck eggs two days after I ordered them. I just wanted to say thank you and that I'm really impressed!
I ordered 20 straight run French Pearl Guineas and got them back in June...I am a big fan of Guineas and had them forever. This is by far the nicest flock of birds I've ever had.
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!
