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 received my 11 ducklings Wednesday, 6/5, after being hatched Monday morning 6/3. Two day shipment to my home in Panama, New York is great!! All 11 baby ducklings arrived healthy and lively, and remain that way.
Thank you for beautiful American Buff goslings. I cannot believe how fast they arrived! They are beautiful!!!! Thank you!!!
The rest of the ducklings and geese we got on April 14th are thriving. They're getting so big we need to move them to a larger pen today. I figured it would take 3-4 weeks for them to get this big since birds from other hatcheries took that long. Definitely some quality birds. Thanking you with gratitude.
Just wanted to drop you an e-mail thanking you for the great customer service. Your reliability, professionalism, and prompt reply to email correspondence was awesome! My babies arrived safely chirping away, They seem to be very healthy, bright eyed, and amazingly energetic, especially since traveling a couple of thousand miles.
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.
You all are my favorite hatchery. Excellent, stellar customer service and wonderful healthy babies.
I'm just a very small customer who is totally satisfied, reporting on your ducks' progress! The ducklings are wonderful, big, healthy and glowing with energy. Thanks again - as the conversation swirling around your ducklings at the clinic confirmed, one gets the best from the best so... You're the best!
We ordered 10 ducklings from you just last week-they arrived quickly, and we were so happy to open the box and find beautiful, healthy virile babies.
I will definitely let all my followers on FB who follow my ducks know what a wonderful hatchery you all are! Thank you for sending me hope. We could all use a little hope, even if it's in the form of an egg.
We have always been pleased with your product, how you do business, and I recommend your birds whenever I can.
We received our Cayuga ducklings yesterday and they are so amazingly perfect...my goodness. I swore I wasn't adding any birds this year....but their perfection had me setting up my brooder last night!
I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future.
I love my babies from Metzer. All ten are doing great. They're gorgeous, healthy, and much better all around than the ducks I ordered from a different hatchery on a prior occasion. I will always order from Metzer Farms from now on.
Ducklings arrived safe and sound this morning. Thanks again for all the excellent customer service.
Thanks Alexa, Ashley & the Metzer Farms crew! My dozen Harlequins arrived this AM safe and sound, and are LOVING their new home! You ARE the BEST!!!
