Five Aylesbury ducks have joined goats, chickens, geese and pigs down on the farm.
The birds arrived at DZG three weeks ago and have been busy exploring their new surroundings in the outdoor farm petting paddock.
Trainee keeper, Clare Westwood, said: “The ducks ventured outside in the last few days, and have quickly settled in with the other animals.
“We haven’t been able to name them yet as we don’t know if they are boys or girls, but I’m sure we’ll think up some interesting names for them when we do find out!”
