The incredibly rare litter of sextuplets were born were delivered by Raymond Brindley, 51, as he lambed his flock of 400 Texel-cross sheep. The farmer was expecting the ewe to have triplets but was amazed when she gave birth to three white lambs and three black ones.
Mr Brindley, who has been working 15-hour days to keep up with his flock, said: “I helped her deliver three of them but then realised there were two more to come. “I thought to myself five must be it but I was amazed there was a sixth one.
“It’s something I’ve heard of happening before but that was about 20 years ago.
“I never thought it would happen in my own flock.”
The bumper brood were born at Mr Brindley’s farm in Parwich, Derbys., on Sunday.
