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.
My ducklings arrived happy & healthy. As always I am thrilled with the ducks I get from you. We always get many compliments on the ducks we have at our herding trials. Great product and awesome service!
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!!
Our baby goslings arrived before 8:00am this morning. My husband went right down to get them. I gotta tell you he was like a little kid at Christmas!! By the way he's 68!! To say he was pleased with them, is an understatement! Thank you so much!!
We bought 10 Welsh Harlequin duck eggs from you a couple of years ago. Arrived in Alaska beautifully and 10 were fertile (you sent 12). Almost 3 years later, we have adored our ducks and this breed is the sweetest.
They arrived today! Here's a big THANK YOU! from the kids. They are excited!
My waterfowl arrived safe this morning. They left you at 7:00am Monday and I received a phone call today Wednesday at 7:15am. Everyone is fine and now eating and drinking. We are all happy now. They are just beautiful.
Thank you so much for your response and time. I ended up taking her to the vet today and got antibiotics and anti-inflammatory for her. The vet also knew about Metzer Farms and said he would recommend ordering from you.
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!!!
Very impressive on your way of customer services and also website information. It gives us full of support for our first try of waterfowl raising.
I received my order at 9:00am this morning. All 10-exactly what I ordered. All extremely active and alert. They ate and drank immediately and are finally settled down taking a nap. I am very very satisfied with how my order went with you guys. Thanks so much.
I received 5 healthy Muscovy ducklings this morning, thanks to all involved. They are doing fine.
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!
We picked up our new ducklings from the post office dock at 6:15am. We began spoiling them at around6:32am. They've got a good life ahead of them at Tyrant Farms! Thanks for providing such beautiful, healthy birds!
