By  | 

LANSING, MI (WILX) - An extremely rare Easter weekend surprise here in Michigan.

Well, it was actually three.

Triplet female calves were born over the weekend at Larsen farms in Mason County.

All three calves and their mother are healthy, which is an extremely rare occurrence.

Workers at the farm say the odds range anywhere from 1-in-100-thousand chances to 1-in-400-thousand chances that all three calves are born healthy.

Each calf weighs between 50 and 65 pounds.
