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 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!
Babies arrived healthy and full of energy. So happy we chose Metzer for our ducklings!
Ducklings arrived early this morning - quacking! THANK YOU!!
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.
I just wanted to let you know, I had ordered ducklings for the first time ever online from you guys...they arrived safe and sound, and every single one of them looked very healthy! I just wanted to thank you so much for being a good business and making my first online chick ordering a success! I will be doing business with you for any future purchases.
I delightfully received my Sebastopol gosling and white crested ducking. They are so beautiful, strong and healthy. I want to thank you for your patience and advice when helping me choose my precious pets. The lady I spoke with was a tremendous help.
Just wanted to let you know that we received our three ducklings. They are very energetic and happy. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.
I wanted to thank you for all your help and for answering my email questions quickly. Since this was my first time incubating eggs, I was a bit nervous to do it incorrectly. Of the 11 eggs you sent me, one was infertile and two quit within the first three days of incubation. All of the rest hatched wonderfully over a three day period and the babies are doing great!
Received 12 duck eggs plus one extra at begging of July. Turned every eight hours and sprayed with water until day 25. Temperature kept at 99.5. Just hatched 11 nice ducklings and am very satisfied. Thanks
I appreciate you guys and all the work you do. I have ordered from you guys three times and I have been happy with my order every time. They come very happy and healthy!
Babies arrived this morning alive and full of spirit. They are beautiful and I do so appreciate the above and beyond service you went to to make up the lost babies from my original order. I will be telling all my friends about you and will only buy from you from now on.
I received my 7 ducklings this morning , and all in great health, active, thirsty and happy to be in a bigger container. Thanks for the great service, and excellent packing.
Kudos on being able to successfully ship Muscovy across the Country!
I had never ordered from the mail before. I was totally impressed with the whole process, ordering and delivery. You guys definitely have it down. We love our new babies, Snowball, Fawn, DOS and Aflac. They are very healthy. Thank you for making this process so easy.
I have hatched and raised everything under the sun and always have 4 incubators going so it is nice to find a place I can trust when I need stuff.
