The new arrivals join the resident chickens, sheep and adult goats that are already in the zoo's Family Farm.

The zoo said the goats were born Jan. 20 at a local farm and were adopted by the zoo. They have been settling in at the zoo's veterinary medical center over the last week, with round-the-clock care from zoo staff.

The smallest of the newcomers, a Nigerian dwarf goat, was named Ruth after Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The two other kids, a pair of floppy-eared Nubian goats, were named Elena and Sonia after RBG's fellow justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.
