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 ordered ten Khaki Campbell eggs from you. I'm on day eighteen of incubation and so far ten of the eggs are still developing perfectly. I just wanted to thank you for not only the fast shipping with amazing packaging but also for the excellent fertility rate! I will definitely be purchasing more eggs from you guys in the future!
The ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.
I called a few weeks ago to ask why you thought my ducks were eating less. By following your advice we got back on track and our ducks are now starting to lay eggs. I appreciated the time you took to address my concerns.
Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful Welsh Harlequin and Indian Runner ducklings, and two Buff goslings that I ordered from you. They arrived right on schedule this past Wednesday full of spunk and healthy appetite. They are growing fast and are gorgeous!
My Pekins are great. They are laying and they are wonderful pets. Sweet and clownish.
My order arrived healthy and vigorous!! Excellent work AGAIN!! Many thanks.
Wanted to say how happy I am with you all. The baby ducks got here safe and all ok. I want to know how I can write a feed back for you guys. Thanks
I just wanted to drop a note to say how pleased I am with the geese and duck I received. One duck did die the day they arrived, (you offered to replace her, but I declined) but the others are growing well and are very friendly! If my husband ever agrees to more geese, I will definitely order them from you!
The two baby sebs arrived on schedule this morning. Very healthy and beautiful. Thanks so much.
Hello! I just wanted to follow up and say thank you for the quick shipment and compliment you on how well you package the eggs. I will be ordering from you in the future and also recommend you to anyone that may ask!
I'm so impressed with y'all! I received my duck eggs two days after I ordered them. I just wanted to say thank you and that I'm really impressed!
Our ducklings arrived today all the way in South Carolina and we had no losses! All 12 are doing great. Also, I dealt with Ashley about my credit card not working, and she was super nice and helpful! Thanks for everything. I will definitely tell others about you all.
My order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
Thank you, Metzer Farms for your time, professionalism, speedy delivery and (most importantly) healthy babies!! This veterinary tech is VERY pleased! I will definitely pass on your name and you will have my business in the future!
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.
