Butterflies Leaving the Cocoon

We found 3 mariposa butterflies by a cocoon on our guava tree this morning. Isn't that cool? They've finally left their cocoon. It's been a long time. We have been noticing fat, green, squishy caterpillars for about a couple of years now, and though we've seen them become cocoons, this is the first time we've seen them "hatch".

And now I'm wondering, why is it that there are 3 butterflies to this cocoon? Is that possible?
