Has anyone bottle raised newborn rabbits. I adopted 1 of my 2 females out to a home where I thought she would get more attention. They told me their male was neutered. They returned her the following week stating she was too aggressive with their male. I went out to feed tonight and found 2 dead babies on the wire cage floor and 2 live ones on the ground 3 feet below the cage. I brought the mother in but she is not accepting them as yet. I held her to try to let the babies nurse but her milk hasn't come in yet. What would be best to bottle feed them with. I only have regular cows milk and just put out a request on Craigslist for KMR. Any ideas?
