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 love Metzer Farms, they are great. My Metzer group of geese is larger and more robust.
Thank you for the job well done!!! I will be certain to share my experience with others around here.
We are so thankful to have had such great experience in watching our geese grow. It has been such a joy! They are well and happy..my husband and I raised two great guys. We settled down a bit now and this has just been such joy to us!!
We LOVE our geese, and were very happy with the way they arrived. It was our first experience in having birds shipped and I was more than a little nervous. I promise to contact you at the end of the year.
I placed an order with you guys and received my ducklings this morning. Thank you so much for getting them to me so soon I love them they are adorable.

Just a quick note to let you know my geese arrived today safe and sound! They are all eating and drinking, they are beautiful! Thank you so much!
This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you.
My class had such a wonderful experience learning about the life cycle of the duck. They loved candling them and seeing the development. I really appreciate the quality of the eggs!!
I wrote a while back about the 7 eggs I got from you that were all fertile. Well 6 of the 7 hatched (woot woot!) They are all healthy and strong at 2 days old. Thank you so much!
I ordered some Pekin ducklings that shipped on March 2. I want to let you know that they arrived in perfect condition and started eating and drinking immediately! Now they are happy healthy babies with ravenous appetites.
I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs. Only 1 perished on the trip and the rest seem happy, healthy and very vibrant. I am very thrilled! Thank you again for the wonderful ducklings!! All your help was greatly appreciated!!
