It could be a sign that spring is on the way: for the second day in a row, a set of triplet goats were born at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum.

Wednesday's triplets were Toggenburg goats, while Thursday's triplets were Boer goats.

Staff at the Experimental Farm said the odds of goats having triplets are about the same as humans having twins.

All six new arrivals and their parents are healthy, staff said.
