Went to the shelter to volunteer today and saw a mom and 3 of her babies. Babies are said to be a month old. I asked if they needed a foster home and they said yes. I filled out my paperwork and brought them home (after walking a dog and taking care of the cats). Of course the shelter has them in a cage that is too small.
Here are my questions: 1) My book says they should not be given veggies until 12 weeks. How do I feed mama veggies and not have the babies eat it. 2) We want to put them in something larger, but have no money to buy anything. We can put them in the kitchen/dining area, but need something to contain them. Any ideas. 3) The babies should be fed alfalfa hay, but do they need alfalfa pellets too? Mommy will be eating that too, is that okay? 4) They gave the momma this horrible seed treat that she is eating, I'm sure the babies chew on it too, should I get rid of it? 5) If I give momma apple tree twigs is it okay for babies to chew too?
Oh and the rabbits had no water!
So far they are all doing well, they don't seem to be scared. I gave them a bit of alfalfa and a small towel to sit on. We have to bring them back in a month. Here they are:
