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 just wanted to say thank you for sending our lovely ducklings and goslings. They arrived safe and sound early yesterday morning and were very lively and ready for their adventure. Again thank you so much.
My Golden 300 Hyrbrid arrived in excellent health.
Thank you, Kelly and all the Metzer Farms for our happy and healthy ducklings that just arrived! Everyone was eager to stretch their legs after the trip:) The Cayugas are just beautiful. The Pekins are very friendly. And the Khaki Campbells are quite sprite and playful already!
The way ya'll are packing birds is great. Saving a lot on shipping cost. Thank you all very much. Healthy birds, great service and tech support, we couldn't ask for better partners in the duck business!!
Thank you for beautiful American Buff goslings. I cannot believe how fast they arrived! They are beautiful!!!! Thank you!!!
Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office.
Great birds and quick delivery!
They are here, eating and drinking, and settling in. All alive! So happy!! Thanks again for replying. I am thrilled and will definitely do business with Metzer Farms again!
I got my ducklings this morning and they are absolutely beautiful and in great shape. Thank you so much for all of your help and please tell Ashley I said thanks to her too. You guys are the BEST!!! I love my little babies. I was afraid when I had them pinioned they would have a big hole in their wings but you can't even tell it! I was so happy to get them and see how healthy they are. Thanks again for all your help with this matter and for being such a great place to order from.
Thank you again for the info and for such lively and healthy ducklings and goslings. All I purchased from you arrived in top condition and have remained in great shape. If I decide to order ducklings or goslings in the future you will get my business because of your great service and quality birds.
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.
Received order no problem what so ever. Always a pleasure doing business with you. Third year with no issues.
I placed an order with you guys! I got 10 Mallards and one Sebastopol. They came in great shape yesterday and are doing great! Thanks for a pleasant ordering experience!
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.
