Farmer James Taylor is the latest to welcome rare quintuplets on his Idaho operation, and it happened on Easter Sunday.

Lamb quintuplets are rare but are born from England to North Carolina and Iowa, and most veterinarians have said it is a once-in-a-million occurrence.

His wife, Jacquie, tells KHOU11 it was an unbelievable surprise.

“We had an Easter miracle this morning at about 7:30 a.m. I had a ewe out here lambing and she had two lambs. So, I took her and put her in the barn, and when I came back out, there were five.”

Their granddaughter, Keyla, was especially excited.

”...It’s just cool because it’s Easter, you know, the resurrection. What’s cool about her is you can see her right and left legs. She broke them about a year and a half ago and I had to learn how to cast. I put her in the cast and she is able to carry five little lambs.”
