The Peabody Ducks: World's Snootiest Water Fowl

In Memphis, TN sits one of the South's most legendary Hotels: The Peabody.


The Peabody is not only famous for being a super duper swanky, its actually more famous for their ducks.  For some reason there is a flock of ducks that live in a penthouse suite.  Every morning the Ducks take the elevator down to the Fountain where they spend the day swimming in the lobby.  The ducks are treated like royalty and escorted to and from the fountain on a red carpet with much pomp and circumstances.  The lobby gets crowded whenever the ducks are coming and going.  Security is very tight and I got yelled at both for standing to close to the ducks and taking this picture.....


I snuck past the robe into the lounge, but ended up getting yelled for standing up trying to see the ducks instead of sitting in a chair.  They are serious about these ducks man.  Check it out.

  1. Ah man...... When we were there, we had a great experience with the staff! I think we were there on an off day though. It was less crowded. This is a good video of the ducks though! AND, these ducks are cool......

    1. Ha! I do love the ducks. The place was packed to the gills and security wasn't playing. They weren't messing around with some guy who was trying to weasel his way closer to the ducks :)
