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 could not be more pleased with my order. I am happy I found your website and I certainly would and will order from you again in the future.
This order arrived today in perfect shape. The eggs are magnificent. I can hardly wait to turn these beauties into lace! You made my day.
I got my six babies early!! Thanks so much for getting them to me perfectly fine.They are happy as can be and tall robust little Indian Runners. I've already mentioned Metzer Farms to a couple people. Also thanks for the great customer service and answering my questions Ashley!
I just received my ducks and geese and everything is great. They are settling in and are quite the characters already. This is my first time with geese so I can't wait to see how they turn out. Thank you so much for the help with ordering, you made the experience with ordering enjoyable.
Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the ducks we ordered from you. They arrived healthy and beautiful. My 10 year old got them as a gift and will be showing them in 4-H this year. He is one very happy boy.
We just have to thank you again for the geese we ordered this morning! Dave Anderson, poultry judge and our good neighbor, said many good things about you folks - so we just had to bring your birds to our home!
My ducks and goose made it to Arkansas...so cute...excited being first time duck and goose mama! Thank you!
I just picked up ten Khaki Campbell ducklings from the post office and am now sharing them with my fourth grade class. They are all healthy, beautiful, and climbing on top of each other. Thank you all for taking great care in hatching and shipping them safely.
I would like to thank you again for your patience with us prior to our order being shipped. As you know, this was our first time ordering ducks (or any kind of animal through the mail for that matter). Everything your website states is true! The babies arrived safe and healthy. They are absolutely beautiful. We would, will and are recommending you to anyone who will listen to us! This was truly a wonderful experience.
Just wanted to say thank you!! I received my babies this morning and they are all doing great!
5 stars! I was a little worried about ordering baby ducks all the way from California to Louisiana. My order of 30+ ducklings arrived Thursday morning. Every single one looks fiesty and healthy! Jumping out of the box immediately to greet us.
My class had such a wonderful experience learning about the life cycle of the duck. They loved candling them and seeing the development. I really appreciate the quality of the eggs!!
We received your Mallard duckling shipment this morning, they look great and I would like to thank you. We appreciate your care and consistency in all that you do.
Hello just wanted to say my ducks arrived safe and sound. Just wanted to say they are so cute that I am glad I got them from you guys. Thank you very much!
