Holy three headed Greek mythological creature, Batman! Triplet calves! Warm up the defibbermathingy, we are not equipped to handle this!
“Farmer Jon Appleby got the surprise of his career one week ago, when triplet calves were born on his farm in Wirral, England.”
“I couldn’t believe it,” the 44-year-old veteran farmer told TODAY.com of the rare phenomenon. “It was quite a shock.” When the cow went into labor, Appleby stayed close by for the first two births, then left, assuming the excitement was over. He returned an hour later, only to find one more baby by her side. ”We’ve never had triplets before.”
Twins are somewhat common among bovine births, triplets and quadruplets are estimated at approximately 1 in 100,000 births.
