Racing Ducks in Retirement


duck race

Have you ever wondered where all the ducks go after the race? The Oswegatchie Educational Center in New York recently retired some of their racing ducks…..4,300 of them to be exact…to make room for their new flock of 10,000 ducks. The Oswegatchie Educational Center in Croghan, New York is nestled on 1200 acres of wooded land within the Adirondack Park. Oswegatchie is owned and operated by the New York FFA Leadership Training Foundation, Inc. The center operates as a youth camp during the summer months and is open throughout the year as an educational and recreational retreat center.

What’s so special about Oswegatchie’s retired ducks? Glad you asked ;) For $4 (plus $3 shipping), you can become an adoptive parent for one of these ducks. Each duck comes with an adoption certificate. To sweeten the deal, you can send them photos to be placed in a gallery on their website. 445 of the retired ducks have already been adopted. Here are some of the pics of where some of those little guys have been…

In addition to the retired racers, they are selling special made FFA logo ducks…..made by the One and only CelebriDucks! See for yourself:

These ducks are a limited collector’s edition so they won’t be around for very long! You can get more info about this duck by clicking here.
