Spring definitely has made its appearance at the Sedgwick County Zoo.
Baby animals are sprouting up all over the children’s farms at the zoo.
So far, there are nine new runner ducklings, seven Sebastopol goslings, one Tunis lamb, one karakul lamb, three Navajo-churro lambs, four Arapawa Island goat kids and one Ancient White Park calf. The kids were born April 4. The calf was born April 6. The lambs were born April 7. The ducklings and goslings hatched March 31.
The Sebastopol geese are new to the zoo. The species is a rare breed and listed as threatened by The Livestock Conservancy, said Melissa Graham, a spokeswoman for the zoo.
The adult geese have long, curly feathers.
More babies are on the way. The last due date for babies at the children’s farms is at the end of May, Graham said.
