Posted 5:13 PM 10/3/2013 : One calf, two heads
(WPTZ) A newly born two-headed calf is calling a Whiting, Vermont dairy farm home.
"It just was something different for us today," said dairy owner Kirstin Quesnel. "Just like with humans we have some abnormalities with animals and animal births and this just happened to be one of them."
The condition, called polycephaly, is extremely rare. The calf was supposed to be a twin, but the egg inside the mother failed to split.
"We had a vet take a look at her earlier today to check all of her signs, and she seems to be doing very well," Quesnel said.
