A goat in North Carolina pulled off a rare feat Sunday, giving birth to quintuplets, WVEC reported.

According to goat handler Roxanne Dorman, the odds of a goat giving birth to quintuplets are 1 in 10,000, the television station reported.

Dorman helped her friend, Mona Armstrong, deliver the five kids Sunday in Harbinger,

"It was amazing," Dorman told WVEC. "We couldn't believe it."

The mother, named Tink, gave birth to four females and a male, which surprised Armstrong.

“I was thinking ‘Oh my goodness," Armstrong told the television station. “I was thinking three.”

“Then the fourth one came, and then the fifth one came,” Dorman said.
