Introducing Quincy!

Quincy when she first arrived.

Quincy is a domestic Pekin duck, the kind often seen in rows hanging by the neck in Chinese restaurants. She was found abandoned as a tiny duckling in a New York City park. We’re not sure how she ended up there, but someone probably bought Quincy as an Easter gift and abandoned her after realizing he or she didn’t know how to properly care for a duckling. Sadly, these “post-Easter abandonments” are all too common.

As Quincy grew out of ducklinghood, she was closely watched over by the staff of Woodstock Farm Sanctuary. She quickly bonded with everyone—and stole all of our hearts!

When Quincy met Teddy the duck the two become instant friends. They are usually found hanging out together in the duck pond, and Teddy will even let her eat first!

Our new location in High Falls has enabled us to provide a home to over 40 rescued ducks, all who now live the rest of their lives enjoying the sunshine in our huge new dock pond.
