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 wanted to tell you the good news!! We have 12 babies from your eggs!! The children got to see them hatch, which was AMAZING!! They are so precious! Thank you for all of the advice and help along the way. We will definitely be ordering again another year!
I'm beyond pleased with my order and will recommend you guys to everyone! I will be ordering some goslings from y'all next :-)
I just wanted to take a moment to email you guys and let you know that I am so happy with my decision to purchase hatching eggs from you. With a great deal of hesitation I ordered eggs and to my surprise candled all 11 eggs tonight and every single one had the beginning stages of a developing embryo.
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.
We are so thankful to have had such great experience in watching our geese grow. It has been such a joy! They are well and happy..my husband and I raised two great guys. We settled down a bit now and this has just been such joy to us!!
I just wanted to say thank you! I am a first time buyer with you all and your customer service is excellent. I bought some Mallard eggs to hatch and they all arrived perfect. I incubated 4 duck eggs for the first time and all hatched healthy and happy. They are adorable. I could not have done it without you all.
The two baby sebs arrived on schedule this morning. Very healthy and beautiful. Thanks so much.
Thanks for your amazing customer service and for breeding such gorgeous and exceptional ducklings. All the ducklings you sent us are doing fantastically!
We received 27 beautiful healthy Khaki Campbells this morning. All are doing so well. Thank you from Tuscon!
I am very pleased with my experience with you guys at Metzer Farms and would like to thank you for your extraordinary work.
Just a quick note to let you know my geese arrived today safe and sound! They are all eating and drinking, they are beautiful! Thank you so much!
Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them.
Last year our 4-H group ordered ducks and geese for our county fair projects. Your ducks and geese were grand and reserve duck and goose. There were four Metzer waterfowl entered and all four were on the top! My daughter REALLY enjoys her ducks and was very proud and pleased to win.
Ducks arrived this morning at 6:45 and they are adorable. I have to admit I was skeptical about mail ordering ducks, but the whole thing went off without a hitch! They are a nice addition to our growing urban flock:-) Thank you!
I would like to encourage all of you, if you have questions to check out Metzer Farms website. I have had a few questions and they have always responded. Their website has been very helpful both personally and professionally.
