Peabody_Ducks

The famed Peabody ducks have been trained to ride the elevator from the lobby fountain to their penthouse Royal Duck Palace since 1940. However, measures, such as not naming the individual ducks, are taken in an attempt to respect the fact that they are wild animals and not pets.  The ducks are raised on a farm and only spend three months of their lives in the hotel.  After that they are retired and taken back to the farm to live the rest of their lives as a typical wild duck; if you can consider that the life of an everyday wild duck.
