Let me just compliment you on your Cornish Cross chickens. I have always held you guys up as the premier duck hatchery. Let me just say that these birds have outperformed any hatchery I have brought from in the last few years. These birds are huge and unaffected by the Summer heat. I look forward to continuing to order ducks as well as chickens from you all. Thank you! Derek from Seymour, Tennessee
Thank you, thank you, and thank you. We just picked them up from the post office and they are alive and happy.

Rebecca from Forestdale, Massachusetts

My first EGG-sperience with getting birds or hatching eggs from a hatchery and Metzer Farms was EGG-straordinary! I ordered 3 Chocolate Runner hatching eggs and 2 Cayuga hatching eggs. All arrived in EGG-cellent condition! And they sent and EGG-stra Runner egg! 100% hatch rate! They are a month old now and thriving. They were my first ducks and were worth it. If you want ducks, order from Metzer Farms! Lily from Pine Lake, Georgia

My geese arrived promptly at 6:13am at my post office and they are all in perfect condition. I was surprised at how active compared to chickens they are at only three days old. They immediately started foraging as soon as I took them out of the box and were eager to be hand fed. This was a great experience and I'm already looking forward to future orders. Justus from Liberty Hill, Texas
I received the chicks this morning - all alive and raring to go. I like the green gel cup too...that's a nice touch. Thank you for the great communications and great chicks! Jason from Rescue, California
Just wanted to let you know we got the 14 chicks and ducklings. They are all healthy and happy in their brooder. The kids were thrilled to see the chicks especially our 10 year old. I joked to my son that the ducks imprinted on him and he will be followed from now on. Thank you for taking such good care of them. Margaret from Roseville, California
Just wanted to say "Thank you" for my new Buff goslings. They arrived safely and are happily living under a warmer in my porch.

Wishing you the best this season and look forward to contacting you next spring for my next order. Michael from Sharon, Massachusetts
Our Muscovy ducklings just arrived. All are doing great. What fun. Watching and playing with them has given us something to do during our "house arrest". I hope all of you are doing well. Thank you for your service. John from Pierce, Colorado
Last year we ordered 10 hatchable Pekin duck eggs. We received 15, and hatched 10! It was a great experience for my boys. This year during the sheltering, we are considering the prospects of hatching Mallard duck eggs. Thank you for your attention to detail and for your kindness. Tim from Sacramento, California
Our ducklings came today and they are ADORABLE! Just wanted to say thanks for brightening our quarantine, the boys are so excited to watch their ducklings grow.

The 3 little geese have arrived in Apex, NC this Wednesday morning approximate 7am. All three are in excellent health. Thank you for getting them here alive, great job for such a long trip. We are all well, so will enjoy watching the natives grow in our beautiful springtime weather. David from Apex, North Carolina
Thank you, Metzer Farms for your time, professionalism, speedy delivery and (most importantly) healthy babies!! This veterinary tech is VERY pleased! I will definitely pass on your name and you will have my business in the future!
Metzer Farms knows EXACTLY what they are doing! These babies were in a sturdy, breathable box with 2 cups of gel food (stapled to the side, smart!), a hay nest and a heat pack (brilliant!). I expected that they would be stressed from the trip, but they settled in playing, eating and drinking right away!
I ordered 4 Muscovy ducklings. I was apprehensive because 1. I've never mail ordered live animals before and 2. I live on the East Coast. I just received them this morning. Let me tell you, they are happy, healthy, and cute as a button! A dream come true for my 15 year old step daughter.
We ordered 8 mallards. They arrived on schedule. They were nicely packaged with bedding, a warm pack and a cup of water. They all appear vigorously healthy. We couldn't be happier. Thanks to the folks at Metzer Farms!
I want to tell you about my pair of Gray Toulouse geese that will turn 13 years old on April 6th. They have been the most faithful geese to one another. The gander is a great guard to his goose and the goose is the best brooder and mother I have ever seen. They are both great parents. I've purchased them when I was 13 and now I'm 27. Better than any dog. Haha Ethan from Carson City, Michigan
I just wanted to say thank you for sending our lovely ducklings and goslings. They arrived safe and sound early yesterday morning and were very lively and ready for their adventure. Again thank you so much. Lili from Sultan, Washington

The ball ducks arrived today. They are settling into their new home. The family loves them and everyone is eating and drinking great. We are so excited to start our duck journey!

Minutes after I talked to you the post office called (one in Rockford-IL - bigger city than where I live) and said my chicks where in. I went and got them immediately and they're all alive, safe and well. Got them home and they're running around in the pen, eating and drinking. Thanks so much. Mary from Winnebago, Illinois
The Appleyards keep up a pretty constant chatter, just wish we knew about what! Usually one leads off with a really loud, Groucho Marx sound, then there is a chorus of quacking until they all get it out of their system for a few minutes. Also there is almost constant head bobbing, which we've read can be flirting or a sign of happiness. They keep all the fruit trees and grape vines well pruned at least a few inches about their heads. Pam from Aurora, Oregon
We received our 6 Appleyards back on March 20th and could not be more thrilled with their growth and beauty. We've raised other breeds in the past and enjoyed them all, but none came close to these. Not only are the Appleyards lovely, they are noisy and hilarious, just what we love in a duck. Pam from Aurora, Oregon
I really enjoy these ducks. They have wonderful personalities and are a joy to watch. This morning they found a shiney reflective surface and were bobbing and nodding to their reflections. Thanks for your help! Susan from Anchorage, Alaska
Thank you for being so kind and making available every thing we need! The books I purchased from your company are amazing! I'm loving our new adventure raising ducks and chickens! Sharie from West Bridgewater, Massachusetts
I just received the blown eggs I ordered yesterday. I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated the care you took in the packing of the eggshells. It has been a while since I've ordered any shells to work on and, honestly, I have some bad memories of how most orders were packaged. Thank you so much for setting such a high standard and when I do need more eggshells, I will be contacting you again. Karen from Asheboro, North Carolina
The goslings arrived and they're great! I love them! I'm excited to embark on this new adventure! Lisa from Dixmont, Maine
Right on schedule! These little Cayugas started to hatch today - exactly 28 days after I placed them in the incubator. I have two that are hatched, a third that is nearly hatched, and all but 1 or 2 eggs with evidence of attempts of trying to hatch. Thank you again! Carla from Arkdale, Wisconsin
Thank you for the job well done!!! I will be certain to share my experience with others around here. Shirley from Knox, Tennessee
I just wanted to personally thank you guys for shipping my ducks safely! They are beautiful! Christin from Wake Forest, North Carolina
The ducks I have purchased from you over the years have brought my family and I so much joy! Especially me and our young granddaughters. Thank you for the care you take in shipping these babies across the country to provide such happiness! Janis from Panama, New York
I received my 11 ducklings Wednesday, 6/5, after being hatched Monday morning 6/3. Two day shipment to my home in Panama, New York is great!! All 11 baby ducklings arrived healthy and lively, and remain that way. Janis from Panama, New York
I'm very happy with my order. All ducks and drakes made it alive. Top notch service. Thank you very much. Shawn from Spencerport, New York
If my husband lets me sneak more into our new flock I'll order again and again from Metzer. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Great prices too for the service you offer. Ashley
I found Metzer online to ship us 3 new Pekins as the stores around us were out for the season. They shipped them in this perfectly figured out box. They were the 2nd cutest things I've seen (my kids are the 1st only by a hair). They were healthy, happy, and gloriously wonderful. Ashley
I just wanted to say how happy I am that ordering my eggs and receiving them was so quick and easy. I am so excited for this batch of eggs to hatch! I will definitely be a returning customer for my poultry needs. Thanks again! Susie from Syracuse, New York
This is my second time ordering ducks from your farm. So happy with both orders. Thank you for making it so easy and offering such beautiful healthy ducks. Vince from Marblehead, Massachusetts
I had to let you folks know how very pleased I am. Your hatchery delivered on every promise made. The ducklings arrived energetic, hungry, and thirsty as can be. Healthy little females just as I'd hope for. I will be buying more waterfowl, game fowl, with confidence they are healthy. Thank you for your care, even for a small order such as mine. Annabelle from Lawrenceville, Illinois
I just want to thank you! I ordered just two female Rouens as egg laying pets fro you all a month ago, and I couldn't be more pleased! I have raised a few ducks in the past and I've never enjoyed such strong healthy animals as these.These two girls are also docile and friendly. Thank you for such quality!

After a little panicking, I got a call on day 3 that my babies were here! I was expecting some losses...but when I peeled back the lid..I had 10 unhappy (who wouldn't be after that trip) but healthy ducklings squinting into the light! We got home and they got settled into their brooder, started drinking right away and are running around, happy to be done with their travels! Jes

Hello, didn't know if you had a place to write any reviews about your service, but I was a first time buyer from Iowa and your shipping was amazingly fast and the packaging was extremely well thought of for shipping hatching eggs.

After I had ordered your eggs I read a lot about the potential negative side of trying to hatch shipped eggs. It made me worry that I should've tried local eggs first. But your excellent packing job and healthy eggs has shown me that it is possible if done correctly. Rachael from Anchorage, Alaska
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! Rachael from Anchorage, Alaska
I was worried about ordering them from California because that is pretty far from Iowa but you guys packed my babies wonderfully and all 6 of them are alive and healthy. Thank you and I will definitely be ordering from you guys again. Kristin from Royal, Iowa
Thank you very much for the tracking number. I was able to follow my ducks and get them 7 hours earlier by picking them up at 4:30 in the morning at a near by town post office (15 minutes away from me) instead of waiting for them to make it to my local post office. Kristin from Royal, Iowa
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. Carol from Oakdale, California

This order was fulfilled today. Three of the most beautiful happy ducklings I ever saw. Thank you. David from Sanger, California
I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. I know that you are a large company and ship thousands of waterfowl, but my small order of geese were for pets. When the first set arrived deceased, I was heartbroken. Samantha was very kind and helpful on the phone, arranged a second order, and I now have 3 gorgeous little geese wreaking havoc in my garage. I will tell anyone I know looking for waterfowl to call Metzer. Julie from Hickory, North Carolina
They're great! I received my 10 little Welsh Harlequin ducklings yesterday morning. They were thirsty and hungry, but robust. I was worried about them yet they traveled well for newborns! They seem to be getting on really well. Thank you for making this easy! Catherine from Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin
Thanks for your amazing customer service and for breeding such gorgeous and exceptional ducklings. All the ducklings you sent us are doing fantastically! Amanda

We will definitely be ordering from you in the future. Michael from N. Attleboro, Massachusetts

I'm beyond pleased with my order and will recommend you guys to everyone! I will be ordering some goslings from y'all next :-) Angel from Oakdale, Louisiana

I will definitely let all my followers on FB who follow my ducks know what a wonderful hatchery you all are! Thank you for sending me hope. We could all use a little hope, even if it's in the form of an egg. Wendy from Franklin, Tennessee
I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am that I am dealing with honest people who sent me these eggs. I think it's important for you to know that you brought happiness to someone who has been struggling to find it due to a sickness that I can not control. Wendy from Franklin, Tennessee
I just wanted to take a moment to email you guys and let you know that I am so happy with my decision to purchase hatching eggs from you. With a great deal of hesitation I ordered eggs and to my surprise candled all 11 eggs tonight and every single one had the beginning stages of a developing embryo. Wendy from Franklin, Tennessee
When we first started thinking about ducklings, I wasn't sure where to order from. After seeing all the great reviews of you guys on Backyard Chickens, I went with my gut and ordered through you guys even though you were so far away. I am so glad I did:-) Lisa from E Longmeadow, Massachusetts
Just wanted to say thank you for my beautiful ducklings! You all did an amazing job packing them up to handle their journey. All six made it all the way to Massachusetts in great shape. Lisa from E Longmeadow, Massachusetts

I am so happy with the quality and great health of these birds. I will be placing another order in the spring of 2017. A huge thank you and you get 12 out of 10 stars for your service, bird care and breeding. William from Oak Point

Our ducks arrived a few days ago. Because we live in Alaska, they had been in transit for over a day. They arrived healthy and a little frantic (which I took as a sign of outstanding intelligence). I was worried that the fate of 4, one day old ducks, when sent on a cross continental postal odyssey, would not be a good one. But Helga, Belinda, Gwendolyn and Beeky are doing great. Thanks so much. Vanessa from Anchorage, Alaska
The baby goslings I received from you folks are doing great. Active, talkative and very alert. They are all, if not even more than what I expected. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to raise these heritage breeds. Keep up the great work. Don from Farmington, Maine

I received 5 duck eggs about a month ago. I followed your instructions on incubating duck eggs, I turned them 7 times in the beginning and then decreased as the days went on but always turned 3 times a day. So 28 days went by and all 5 ducks hatched! I even called your office during the hatching process and the staff always eager to help answer any questions I had. Lori from Norwalk, Connecticut
I would like you to know how much you helped me today with figuring out how to raise my goslings to manage our incredible amount of rain.

Vicki from Rock Island, Texas

We will recommend you to others and will be ordering again in the future. Ruth

You guys have gone above and beyond. Your customer service had been great and it has been a pleasure to do business with you. Justin
I received my pair each of Toulouse and Brown Chinese geese in early April. We have enjoyed every moment with them and are having fun watching their feathers come in and their confidence grow.

Kristen from Huntingtown, Maryland

Just wanted to let you know, I received my two beautiful Rouen Ducklings today and I am VERY pleased with them! They came happy, healthy and are doing wonderful!
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. Ed from Eden, New York
The rest of the ducklings and geese we got on April 14th are thriving. They're getting so big we need to move them to a larger pen today. I figured it would take 3-4 weeks for them to get this big since birds from other hatcheries took that long. Definitely some quality birds. Thanking you with gratitude. Ed from Eden, New York
As always, the babies arrived perfectly with sweet smelling hay and lots of energy! Thank you so much! Melissa from Montpelier, Vermont
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. Ed from Eden, New York
I wasn't sure where to leave a review for my order from your website and farm but I was so pleased with the ducks I bought I felt I had to let you know.

Nathan from Penrose, Colorado
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:-) Bruce from Pueblo, Colorado

My 3 year old son and I were so excited to pick up our ducks from the post office this am. As always the birds arrived safe and sound with their GROW GEL!

I love your quality and super customer service and look forward to ordering from you every Summer! christine from Eugene, Oregon
Earlier in the year, we bought 4 of your Embden goslings from a person that ordered 60+ goslings from you. Again, healthy as can be. They are calm, wonderful pets that I use in my animal program. Metzer Farms is the BEST! Thank you! Verna from Garretson, South Dakota

I wanted to thank you for excellent customer service from Kelly, who I had the pleasure of speaking with a couple times. She was very reassuring to me. Keep doing what you are doing! Maureen from Madison, Wisconsin
Our 5 Pilgrim geese arrived yesterday to the post office. We went and got them, they survived the night just fine and would love to do more business with you in the future. Kelly

We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. We couldn't believe how productive they are. We were getting 5 eggs a day through the coldest part of the year, when the chickens weren't laying as well. These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do. DD from Wisconsin
We bought 5 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from you last Spring. They arrived happy and healthy, and they are still doing very well. We got them for backyard slug control and egg laying, and they've done a great job of both!These are also very nice pets, and not as skittish as some other ducks we've had. I don't know when we'll need more ducks, but we'll be sure to get them from you when we do. DD from Wisconsin
We just have to thank you again for the geese we ordered this morning! Dave Anderson, poultry judge and our good neighbor, said many good things about you folks - so we just had to bring your birds to our home! Regina
This past June, I ordered 6 Hybrid 300 from you. I just wanted to contact you and tell you how amazing these birds are!! They started laying in October and have given me 6 eggs a day!! They stopped just for two days in early January when we had very cold temps, but now they are back laying, and I swear, their eggs keep getting bigger!! The taste of these eggs are amazing! Again, thank you for wonderful livestock!! Steve from Paducah, Kentucky
We want to let you know how pleased we are with our ducks, 4 Runners and 2 Welsh Harlequins. We received them on April 30, and they have been going strong ever since. We have had no problems at all and enjoy them every day. Right now they are averaging 5 eggs per day. Jim from Greenwood, Delaware

You really can't compare the taste of a Pekin with that of a slimy river duck...your ducks are the best and healthiest of all including my own hatch. Janet from Bethel Island, California
Everyone loves duck eggs here, especially the duck hunters. Everyone should know by now that some of the more famous bakeries use duck eggs and if you want a good holandaise sauce, there's no other egg that compares. Janet from Bethel Island, California
My Grandfather received his hens on the 5th, and they are in perfect shape. He's extremely grateful to you for the way you handled the situation, and will continue to order from you in the future. Jessica from Lindale, Texas

I'd like to say thank you for the wonderful ducklings. I piled them all on my lap when I got them home and they stayed there for maybe a minute and then they were off to the races. They are much friendlier and don't run from me like ducks I had ordered about 5 years ago from another hatchery did. Leslie
I am having a blast with my Khaki Campbell girls! They keep me much more entertained than I ever thought they would. Kaylynn
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 Pete from Drums, Pennsylvania
The female Khaki Campbell started laying exactly on Thanksgiving Day. Fast forward to today and we are now 237 laying days out from that first egg and she has only missed FIVE days of laying an egg. 232 eggs in her first 237 laying days. Great line of Khaki Campbell girls, Metzers!! Bobby from Punta Gorda, Florida
For all intents and purposes, Metzer Farms waterfowl is superior to all the other large hatcheries in the USA. from West Virginia
The customer service is exceptional, I even spoke to Mr. Metzer about dealing with a difficult postmaster and he helped me find another way to get my geese. I highly recommend Metzer Farms to anyone who wants quality waterfowl at a reasonable price. from West Virginia
I live on a small farm, in West Virginia, and I'm very pleased with the quality of birds Metzer Farms provides. I've purchased several geese from Metzer Farms and they are all very healthy birds. from West Virginia
Thank you so much for being so efficient. I contacted a previous company who still even now hasn't replied so it's reassuring to know there are nice companies out there! Daniella from UK
Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them. Mary from Lewisberry, Pennsylvania
You always seem to have everything organized and ready to go out when customers want it. I have referred other people to this wonderful business; you deserve lifelong customers such as us and many others! Jay from Lakewood, Colorado
I am taking the time to let you know I am pleased with your service, great prices, and organization. I love how when the post office messes something up with my order, you take responsibility and make it right by replacing or refunding any birds that did not make it. Jay from Lakewood, Colorado
Just to let you know the two Tufted Buff geese arrived today in perfect health, cheeky and plump. Thank you! Pat from North Salem, New York

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! Allison from Denron, Virginia
After speaking to one of your employees on the phone however, they were able to work with me and find a much closer ship date! I can't wait to receive my new babies! I will be referring Metzer Farms to all of my poultry friends! Sara from Clermont, Georgia
Beautiful keets, very, very healthy after their cross country journey. I feel like I need to put them down for a nap, but even covering the brooder has not stopped them from eating and drinking and running around. Sure you did not send me little piglets with feathers??? Bob
I was concerned in placing an order that required the ducklings to be shipped from coast to coast. But after looking at several hatcheries and breeders, I selected Metzer Farms. I am so happy that I did. Kudos on the obvious care and quality of your breeds. Juanita from Nokes
The heating pad, cup of "something" and the over-all health of the birds, gives your company an A+ rating in my opinion. Juanita from Nokesville, Virginia
I am most impressed. Of the many shipments of chicks, ducklings, and guineas from other hatcheries and breeders, yours by far, has shown the most concern over the shipping care of the little birds. Juanita from Nokesville, Virginia
These two geese you sent me are SO lively and healthy! I am excited to watch them grow. The post office called me at 5:30am and I bounded out of bed so fast! When I peeked in the box, they immediately came towards me, chattering away. I cannot get over how lively they are! Christina from Cotati, California
Ducklings arrived safe and sound this morning. Thanks again for all the excellent customer service. Tim from Grand Rapids, Minnesota

I just processed my ducks at 7 weeks and one day. They look awesome! The weights were way beyond my expectations. There were hardly a hand full of pins.

Just wanted to let you know 10 out of 11 Mallard eggs hatched. It's amazing that I got this great hatch rate with shipping eggs from CA to FL. James from Groveland, Florida

My first ducks were 2 Blue Swedes, 2 Cayugas, and 4 Golden 300s I purchased while I was in college at UC Santa Cruz and picked up at the farm.

I just wanted you to know that we just completed the Provincial APA show and District International Waterfowl Breeders Show at the Coombs Fair in British Columbia.

Most of your testimonials are from new owners, but we wanted you to know that years later, we still appreciate the help and advice on breed selection and if I could convince my partner to get a third goose, you will have our business again. Alex from Lansdowne, Pennsylvania
The first stop we made after opening the box at the post office was our local avain vet, who was shocked at how spry and active they were and how little stress they seemed to have been under during their cross country trek. In three years we have had virtually no health concerns with them. Alex from Lansdowne, Pennsylvania
We received 27 beautiful healthy Khaki Campbells this morning. All are doing so well. Thank you from Tuscon! Tara from Tucson, Arizona

Goose and Gander are also very nice birds to live with while Gander is more protective. Goose will approach and sit with me and Gander will also reluctantly settle close to you but he takes his job of guard very seriously. Beth from Ontario
The geese are so attractive and useful. They eat grass like a sheep and are helping to keep the lawn trim. When the ducks and the geese are out, one goose is always watching just like Canada geese in the wild do. Beth from Ontario
The Runners are used for herding and they are amazing to watch. They kind of flow like water and keep together like flocks of sparrows do when they fly only the Runners are on foot. I love them. Beth from Ontario
I witnessed a raven sitting on a fence post thinking hard about what to do. Gander was forceful and negative and the raven left. Hooray!! Beth from Ontario
They have exceeded expectations in health and quality, as usual! Beth from Ontario
I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks! I received my ducklings this morning after a bit of confusion at customs.

I was so pleased at how healthy and lively they were after their trip. I did have you add the grow gel to the package which was all gone when they arrived and I think it makes all the difference in the world for them to have while they are in transit. Rachel from Blandsville, Illinois
Got my 8 Tufted Buff and 10 Buff ducklings on Wednesday. They all made it to Illinois in fine shape and are doing great. Rachel from Blandsville, Illinois
I just wanted to let you know I received the ducklings and goslings today! They were wonderful and cute! I love all 24 of them. They arrived healthy and active. Thank you so much! I will definitely order other breeds from you next time. Shannon
Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for the beautiful ducklings! I ordered ten assorted females and they came in today all happy and vibrant. Thank you for your excellent service and I will be sure to tell everyone about you! Marlo from Gloucester, Virginia
Last year's hatched in June, began laying all the end of November, and each duck has consistently produced and egg every day since. The drakes are real charmers with personality plus. I could go on and on about them, and all the joy they bring every day. Leslie from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Just like last year, 100% of the eggs you sent were fertile. I'm thrilled every Blue Runner hatched, and 7 out of 10 Golden 300's. I witnessed some very rough handling but your excellent way of packaging saved them all. The ducklings are all strong and perfect. Leslie from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
We received our baby ducks yesterday. Very cute, beautiful and healthy. Very nice. Thank you. Julie from Greenleaf, Wisconsin
From now on we will only be getting our birds from you. I have also told all my duck loving friends about you. Colleen from Rockville, Indiana
Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the ducks we ordered from you. They arrived healthy and beautiful. My 10 year old got them as a gift and will be showing them in 4-H this year. He is one very happy boy. Colleen from Rockville, Indiana
I had 100% fertile eggs all the way up to hatch time. I've had 6 out of the 10 hatch, which I'm very happy about. Thank you for great service, and I really appreciate your website, very informative and it was real helpful through this process. Christian
Knowing exactly what dates our ducks would be hatching and then shipped made the ordering process the most seamless I've ever done with any business. It truly was a pleasure doing business with the Metzer Farm Family and I look forward to doing business with you again. Michelle from Norfolk, Nebraska
I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the beautiful ducks and wonderful service you provide. I know I will purchase from you again in the future. Michelle from Norfolk, Nebraska
All my ducklings arrived this morning safe and sound. Very vigorous babies! Thanks! Vicki from Oakdale, California
I just wanted to let you know that my duck hatching eggs arrived this morning in perfect condition! And am so far very pleased with the service you have provided me! Thank you so much! I will be ordering from you in the future for sure! Kyle from Mason, Michigan
I just picked up ten Khaki Campbell ducklings from the post office and am now sharing them with my fourth grade class. They are all healthy, beautiful, and climbing on top of each other. Thank you all for taking great care in hatching and shipping them safely. Joseph from San Diego, California
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. Milton from Hendrum, Minnesota
All of my ducks including the original Trouble and Mischief who started the whole Live Ducks phenomenon came from Metzer. I had the honor of touring John's farm a few year's back (photos on Live Ducks). It is a top notch place and the warmest people you'll meet. Lori
I would like to encourage all of you, if you have questions to check out Metzer Farms website. I have had a few questions and they have always responded. Their website has been very helpful both personally and professionally. Caridad
They were wonderful with info and patience when trying to figure out regarding another mate for Hamilton...not like Metzer Farms didn't have other important things to do. I even drove down after work to pick up ElizaRose they set aside for me. Eileen from Mountain View, California
I want you to know I've spent hours on Metzer Farms website, learning all I can, to make my duck's lives better. Thank you for all your info you put out there to help those of us who need it! Metzer Farms is the greatest! Leslie
What's with these Golden 300 Hybrid Layers? It's the dead of a Maine winter. Gets dark before 4 in the afternoon. And we are still getting six to eight eggs a day from eight ducks! These girls don't want to quit. I keep talking these girls up to people who ask about ducks for eggs. Joe from New Sharon, Maine
I am really glad I found your hatchery because you guys have consistently sent me excellent order after order and I will continue to use you as my main supply of large eggs. Sara from Fremont, California
Thank you very much for your wonderful service. Our pair of Pekin ducklings arrived earlier than we expected and appear very healthy. The ducklings are adorable and we will definitely recommend your hatchery to friends! Rachel and Abbey from Lithia, Florida
I have been searching for goose eggs since leaving the Netherlands years ago. I am delighted. The eggs arrived in beautiful condition and will become my "canvas" for hand painted Christmas memories! Susan from Washington, District of Columbia
Well John, you won me over. I've had my Golden 300 Hybrids since April and am in love with them. For a while, all 19 ducks were laying an egg a day. With the shorter days, I'm down to 13-15 eggs per day without any extra lighting. Joyce from Enumclaw, Washington
The duck eggs were an experiment to see if there was enough interest - there is, it seems that many people have an allergy to chicken eggs but not duck eggs. Anyway, I would like to order more of the White Layers early next year. Karen from Klamath Falls, Oregon
The White Layers I bought earlier this year are fantastic layers! They began to lay just when you said they would and are still laying strongly after 6 months. Karen from Klamath Falls, Oregon
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. Elsa from Pittsburg, California
We have endured jabs about our "fancy purebreds" but over the years with the Khaki Campbells and the Swedes we have had wonderful health and longevity and of course it really helped being able to order just what we wanted in sexes. We know that with the quality of your birds, we have more than gotten our money's worth. Elizabeth from Grand Portage, Minnesota
The runners are a scream! They are the most talkative, active and imaginative of any ducks I've seen. Just for the fun of them though, I'd suggest runners for folks wanting a little flock of ducks to lighten life. Elizabeth from Grand Portage, Minnesota
The geese are here to help prevent raven attacks on the ducks and the three of us act like a well-oiled machine. They warn me of raven presence, I run and chase them off and we all three yell at the raven. We have had no attacks on any duck since the geese went outside. Elizabeth from Grand Portage, Minnesota
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. Tammy from Casper, Wyoming
I wanted to let you know that the replacement ducklings arrived yesterday and are doing great. Thank you so much for being willing to replace the three that we lost during our last shipment. I look forward to doing business with you all for years to come. Wendy from New Vineyard, Maine
Our daughters will be showing at the fair this next fall and I know with this flock they will place well. Hope to deal with you again as we continue to expand our flock. Tom from Overbrook, Kansas

Thank you so much for your quick response and also for answering quite a few questions of mine about incubating. I will definitely order from you again! Robin from Pantego, North Carolina
I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service! I initially placed an order for duckling eggs, and when a few of them arrived broken (hard to believe because the packaging was absolutely excellent!), you not only shipped immediate replacements, but threw in a few extra to boot. Robin from Pantego, North Carolina
I would like to thank you again for your patience with us prior to our order being shipped. As you know, this was our first time ordering ducks (or any kind of animal through the mail for that matter). Everything your website states is true! The babies arrived safe and healthy. They are absolutely beautiful. We would, will and are recommending you to anyone who will listen to us! This was truly a wonderful experience. Pam & Gary from Phoenix, Arizona
HI-the ducklings are in their new home in Simi Valley and are doing great! It has been a big day for them and every so often I see them taking a little nap. If I hear of anyone wanting to buy or raise ducklings, I am referring you. Again-thank you! Leslie from Simi Valley, California
I purchased some runner ducklings from you that hatched 10/11/10. Saturday, my first ducklings out of the ducks I bought from you began hatching. I must say my blue female is doing a wonderful job of mothering. I have a mix of colors and cant wait to see what I end up with. Thanks Metzer for the wonderful quality ducks. Judy from Largo, Florida
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. Julie from Pearcy, Arkansas
Just a thank you for the wonderful eggs you sent. They were 100% fertile, and the ducklings are strong and beautiful, beyond my wildest expectations.

Leslie from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Thank you again so much for the beautiful birds. We really appreciate the quality of birds. Carmen from Montreal
We ordered 3 Rouen ducklings from you just a few short weeks ago. Having no prior experience I was amazed at how rapidly they grew. Terri called me from her school where I had them shipped to with the news that they had arrived. I told her to open the box and let them see her and hear her voice and she would be their "mommy". Now they follow her around and get close to her when she is outside. They are truly amazing and such fun. Tom from Wonder Valey, California
The Golden 300 Hybrid started laying the third week in May and are now up to 8 eggs a day. We have had many comments on how handsome they are. Thanks again for the great ducks. Stone Corner Farm from New Sharon, Massachusetts
The Golden 300 Hybrid are every bit as good at foraging as Khaki Campbells, perhaps better. they remind me of that pack of Velociraptors in the movie Jurassic Park. Joe from New Sharon, Massachusetts
They provided a perfect example for others to follow by putting Service into their customer service. I am very pleased in how things worked out, and just wanted to say kudos for a job well done. Don from Shelton, Washington
Hi, I just wanted you to know that the ducks arrived at the post office as stated. There names are Donald and Daisy! We are so happy to have those little guys!

I was a little nervous about the shipping aspect, but they came right on time and this worked out great. Dennis from Troy, Michigan
I would like to tell you that a Brown China hen that I bought from you has done very well for me. I took her to a show and out of twenty-two geese she took Reserve Grand Champion Goose. She took Champion Goose at a small show with only four geese and she took Champion Goose and Reserve Waterfowl at another. I plan on taking her to other shows in the fall to see how she does and I will let you know. Ethan from Carson City, Michigan
These ducks I have are so much better than the laying hens I've had previously, with higher production, stronger egg shells, and larger egg sizes. Daryl from Auburn University, Alabama
I bought 28 Golden 300 female ducklings on May 17 last year. They are wonderful layers...this past week I picked up 103 eggs from the past 105 duck-days (15 ducks X 7 days). I'm impressed! Daryl from Auburn University, Alabama
I learned it is more beneficial to order from hatcheries that specialize in specific types of birds. In your case it appears you have much better breeding stock which gives babies that are more capable of with standing the rigors of postal travel. Mary from Aztec, New Mexico
All the ducklings and goslings you arrived in great shape and alive. they have remained alive and full of energy and interest in their world. Mary from Aztec, New Mexico
Hello, Just wanted to let you know the 4 geese made it in fine condition, & to Thank you for your excellent service!!! John from Vancouver, Washington

just a quick "Thank you" for our order of ducklings. The post office called dark and early at 4:45 am, and we went to pick them up. Everyone seems healthy, and they're all eating and drinking well. Thank you so much, and I hope to work with you again! Lorraine from Winchester, Kentucky

I just wanted to thank you for raising and selling such good quality waterfowl. Corey from Frederick County, Maryland
