I have heard of triplets before and all three survived. I think i remember someone a few years back hatch three red foots and all did ok, two were a good size and one small one so yes it can happen.

No they didn't go much further than the picture but to be honest thats what I was expecting.
I'm sure one of my lot will do twins again so maybe next time
