I have 2 HL babies, born Nov 28. Their mom died unexpectedly, and I have no other doe with kits. So I am 'dropper' feeding them Goat's Milk. They don't really like it and will only drink about 1-4 dropper fulls at a time. (.3ml to about 1ml) They are getting boney and dehydrated looking. How do I get them to eat more?

We had good luck feeding canned evaporated milk to orphaned bunnies. They need thick fatty milk. Goat milk might not be rich enough. We fed by the dropper too and only twice a day. They did just fine. We also made sure they had water and dry hay (not green) when they were old enough.
