‘CONJOINED’ BABY BIRDS SEPARATED, ‘GREW’ TOGETHER

A pair of young robins joined at the wing have been separated after they were found flapping on the ground in a family’s backyard, seemingly fused together.

Priscilla Todd took the birds in, hoping a veterinarian would separate them and give them a chance at survival, Salt Lake City’s Deseret News reported.

A local veterinarian stepped in, but found that instead of being conjoined, a small plastic thread had lodged between the two birds soon after they hatched, and their skin and feathers grew over it.

One of the two birds underwent a partial wing amputation as part of the procedure and is in critical condition. The stronger bird will be released back into the wild.
