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.
Thank you so much! This time all the ducklings came healthy and alive! You guys are the best farm ever. Thank you for your service, the shipping was really fast.
We just wanted to let you know how excited we are to try our hand at ducks! We visited several hatchery sites but we heard only good things about your farm and decide to place our first duck order with you. Thank you all for the great info contained in your site and we will be waiting anxiously for April!
I like to make it a point to tell a business when I am pleased with their service. I really appreciate your focus on customer service and I will not only order many more birds from you, I will refer other people to your company.
Thank you very much for being so helpful. I ordered from you guys because I’d heard great things about your customer service. I’m glad it was all true.
I got a call from the local post office yesterday morning at 6:30 saying the chicks had arrived, so I picked them up 15 minutes later. They are here and doing fine and I wanted to thank you so much for getting them here so quickly and safely.
The ducks arrived and are doing great! That was nice of ya'll!! I'll recommend ya'll to my friends when they get some ducks.
Hey! I just wanted to let you know that our ducks and Guineas arrived today and are loving their new home. Thank you so much!
They are here, eating and drinking, and settling in. All alive! So happy!! Thanks again for replying. I am thrilled and will definitely do business with Metzer Farms again!
Thank you so much for your quick response. We are going to try again with our incubator. Deep gratitude for being so responsive.
Just an update to let you know my little ducks arrive in great shape and are doing well. This made my granddaughters day and she has been the mommy figure to these little guys and gals since their arrival. Very happy with the purchase.
We have been customers of Metzer Farms for a few years now and just wanted to tell you that we were very excited to see that all of the 100 Cornish Cross and 130 Grimaud Hybrid arrived this am in very good condition. We appreciate you taking the extra steps to insulate the boxes. It was 1 degree F this am here. Thank you!
Thank you very much really like the birds. They are enjoying themselves, eating, drinking and sleeping under the lamp. Thanks again.
The geese are the most sociable babies I've ever seen. So pleased with them.
Just wanted to drop you an e-mail thanking you for the great customer service. Your reliability, professionalism, and prompt reply to email correspondence was awesome! My babies arrived safely chirping away, They seem to be very healthy, bright eyed, and amazingly energetic, especially since traveling a couple of thousand miles.
Yay! Thank you! The baby ducklings I received last year were precious and healthy. I was anxious about getting babies shipped but you all do such a fantastic job at this ❤️
