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.
Thank you so much for the two wonderful African goslings we purchased from you. They arrived healthy and happy and are such a delight each day.
I picked them up this morning and found two happy, hungry, and thirsty ducklings! They were packed very well. Thank you!
I am here to tell you that your Blue Swedish ducks are FANTASTIC. The show I went to was the Rocky Mountain Feather Fanciers show in Brighton, CO. I ended up winning reserve medium duck for the futurity part of the show, but in the traditional I ended up winning Champ Medium duck, Champ Showmanship in the senior division, and Champion waterfowl by a JR.
I would like to thank you guys so much for our new members of the family. I picked up our baby Mallards this morning and they were healthy and playing around. They love their new home. Again thank you!
The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
I have had good experience with Metzer Farms. I also have had questions about my ducks that they were quick to answer and they even asked the owner of Metzer Farms for me. They were very helpful.
All ducks arrived safe and sound. Your company is amazing. Thanks once again.
I received my ducklings this morning! They made it to Orange, Texas at 5:41am and notified by 7:26am! The service of Metzer has been fantastic. It has been a great experience. Thank you so much for the awesome quacks!!
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.
The ball ducks arrived today. They are settling into their new home. The family loves them and everyone is eating and drinking great. We are so excited to start our duck journey!
I received my ducklings las Wednesday. They all (3 Buff and 5 Runner ducks) arrived in great shape-strong, alert and active. Thank you for providing such wonderful and entertaining little ducks.
We just wanted to let you know that we received our two Welsh Harlequin babies yesterday and they are doing wonderful. This is the first time we have bought and owned ducks and we are very satisfied with your service.
I received my three little ducklings Wednesday and they were in perfect condition and in great health. I would recommend you to anyone planning on getting baby birds. Again thank you for our little Buttercup, Coco and Gypsy.
