Wicklow Sheep gives Birth To Sextuplets

A farming family in Wicklow are celebrating this week after one of their sheep gave birth to six lambs.

According to Wicklownews.net, Clifford and Marcella Kinch welcomed the arrivals on their farm at Sandyford in Tinahely, but were slightly surprised as only four lambs had shown up when the ewe was scanned. However according to the report, it’s not a record birth on the farm. In 2008 one of their sheep gave birth to seven lambs.
