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.
Ordered 2 female ducklings and they arrived safe and sound. Will be ordering from you if I need anymore in the future.
If every American business offered the quality of products and customer service that you do, we wouldn't be buying so much from overseas and the US would be the great country like it used to be.
My order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
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!!
I just wanted to let you know that we received our duck and goose order today. They all arrived happy and healthy. Thank you so much for your high quality birds.
The ducklings arrived this morning in wonderful health. I was like an expectant parent waiting for their arrival. I will be ordering some geese in the near future from you all.
I hatched 2 Mallard (hen & drake) and 3 Welsh Harlequins (2 hens & a drake) last May from eggs bought from you. They started laying on Thanksgiving and are producing 1 egg a day, including the little Mallard hen. We give many away to families who love them. Your ducks are first rate.
I just wanted to thank you so much for the goslings we got from you last week. They are perfect. They all got here safe and sound. I will be ordering from you again in the future. Thank you so much!
Wow super fast shipping and everyone is doing well. Thank you!
Not that it will surprise you, I'm sure, but every one of the ducklings made the trip no problem. They are vigorous and beautiful and I could not be more pleased! All are eating and drinking and seem very happy to be out of the box. Talk soon, and THANKS!
Thank you so much for your understanding and flexibility. I greatly look forward to receiving these animals and I do want guys to know that I highly respect your company and you are the only farm I refer people to as your services over these years have been nothing but satisfactory. Have a wonderful day!
Just wanted to say "Thank you" for my new Buff goslings. They arrived safely and are happily living under a warmer in my porch. They have already started following me around when I let them out of the pen and they are content to be held and petted. As always, great service! Wishing you the best this season and look forward to contacting you next spring for my next order.
I just wanted to write and thank you SO very much for my babies. They will be 4 weeks old on Tuesday and they are the most gorgeous ducks and geese I have ever seen. So very healthy.
Just wanted to thank you for making all the adjustments to my order. The two ducklings arrived safe and sound. Thank you to John Metzer and his team of workers for the amazing experience. Looking forward to getting more ducks in the future.
A huge thank you for the wonderful ducklings I've received from you over the last two years. They have brought us so much JOY and purpose.
