Benjamin the lovebird was born with splayed legs, a condition that occurs when abnormal lateral forces on the legs and feet causes the long bones and sockets of the upper leg to distort and bend outward or sideways. His parents completely ignored him, but with the help of his siblings he survived the first crucial weeks. Then with extra tender loving care from his owners and the vet, Benjamin’s legs were corrected and he grew up to be a healthy, flying lovebird.
