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.
Great. Thank you so much! I did receive them today.. so much cuteness... Thank you all are happy and look healthy.
I received my 4 ducklings Wednesday and I just wanted to say how happy I am with them! They are so happy, healthy, and active! Thank you!
Eggs arrived yesterday! So fast and so beautiful. Clearly labeled. Thank you! I can't say enough good things about you guys! From phone order to hatching!
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.
Thank you again for your dedicated customer service and the quality of the birds we received from you. I will give you 100% satisfied feedback.
Just taking a moment to say thanks! All 10 made the trip just fine and are now eating and drinking like good little ducks. Only problem is before they arrived people had talked me out of 6 of them. Guess I should have ordered more!I have a feeling this is just a start:-)
Just wanted you to know how thankful we are to have the Duck eggs. The little boy who the eggs are for feels like it is Christmas...it has been a long time since he was able to have breakfast with eggs and he said there is nothing like dipping your turkey bacon in an egg.
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!!! Both female goslings arrived in great condition! Love that we can get goslings later in the season!!!
Thank you for my order of 3 baby ducks. They're beautiful.
I got my ducklings this morning and they are absolutely beautiful and in great shape. Thank you so much for all of your help and please tell Ashley I said thanks to her too. You guys are the BEST!!! I love my little babies. I was afraid when I had them pinioned they would have a big hole in their wings but you can't even tell it! I was so happy to get them and see how healthy they are. Thanks again for all your help with this matter and for being such a great place to order from.
Our prior order of Running Ducks and Geese are growing fast. We have a rapidly growing brood. Thanks for taking care of us. Have a great week.
Your strain of Guineas are of very high quality and consistently are at the top of classes in shows. Gary APA/ABA licensed judge
I picked up my order from the Oakdale post office a little before 8am this morning. What a lively bunch! Most are sleeping now after a very energetic time of exploration of their new home. Thank you very much.
I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know my geese arrived this morning healthy, happy and ready to go! They are doing wonderfully and have the greatest little personalities! Thank you for my beautiful babies!
