ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The Peabody Hotel ducks are about to make their last march in Orlando.

The final march is scheduled for 5 p.m. Monday at the Orlando hotel, which has been sold and will soon reopen as a Hyatt Regency.

The duck march has been daily tradition since the Peabody opened on Nov. 1, 1986. Every afternoon, guests gather to watch the ducks walk from the elevator to the fountain.

Duck master Donald Tompkins told Orlando's WESH TV ( ) taking care of the ducks has been a "unique and different" experience.

The ducks will be moving to a farm, where they'll live out their lives.

The march of the ducks will continue at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tenn.
