Tomorrow I am getting a 3 week old doeling and two 2 week old babies, boy and girl. The 3 week doeling is healthy and feeding from mom. The 2 week olds, especially the boy, are not. The main reason I am taking them is because the woman who owns the mommas is...highly irresponsible. She is the same one who brought me a dying buckling that she didn't bottle feed when his momma died at 6 weeks. Who didn't know that a buck would breed with his own daughters so she didn't see the big deal with rooming him with them. Who moved her buck in with the mommas within a WEEK because he was lonely and she didn't want to bother with buying a wether. and she has 20 acres, bad fencing, no LGD, and has already lost a pregnant doe to coyotes this winter. And she doesn't vaccinate for anything. So anyway I'm taking the babies now. When I had bottle babies before, I had access to their momma's milk until they were about a month old. When I did, I mixed Sav-a-kid with half water half goat milk. No scours, good fur, strong bones. But this time I wont have goat milk. Can I half and half with whole buttermilk or vitamin D? I'm especially concerned about supplementing the little boy. I know its best to stay with momma. but staying with momma in this case is more of a danger. At least here they will have a secure warm stall, within a secure barn, within a secure fence with 3 LGD's and a baby monitor.
