The Peabody is the site of the world-famous ducks, who spend part of every day swimming in the Grand Lobby fountain. The mallards are raised by a local farmer and friend of the hotel. They live in the lavish Duck Palace on the Plantation Roof. Every day at 11am, they are led by the Duckmaster down the elevator to the Italian Travertine marble fountain in the Grand Lobby. Red carpet is unrolled and the ducks march through crowds of admiring spectators to the tunes of John Philip Sousa. The fanfare is repeated at 5pm when the ducks retire to their rooftop palace.
