Brave Baby Owl: Overcoming Growth Disorder, Adorable Bird Takes Steps with Leg Splints, Defying Odds for a Chance to Walk

An adorable baby owl with a serious growth disorder has been given leg SPLINTS to help her walk.

And although her legs will never develop properly Boo Boo can waddle around her specially designed enclosure by balancing herself with her wings.

She took her to a vet and tests found she has a serious disorder which has caused her legs to twist so badly that she is unable to stand up.

“She would not be able to fly as her legs aren’t strong enough to land and not having any talons makes her vulnerable.”

Her owners are now crowdfunding to try and raise £1,500 towards the cost of her vet bills.

Senara added: “We are hoping we can avoid the need for surgery as the cost for that alone will be £2000.

“Boo Boo is an amazing bird.

“She has coped so well with all the treatment, never biting or scratching, and is teaching herself to walk on her heavily bandaged legs, by supporting herself with her wings.”

Senara added: “We have provided her with a deep straw bedded pen so she can move about safely with no danger of hurting herself if she loses balance.

“She has to be carried when she goes to the vet as she is unable to balance herself in a carrier box – her reaction to this is to snuggle in and fall asleep.”
