I have a baby bunny that was a runt of the litter. He wasn’t eating and was severely dehydrated! Every time I tried to feed him he would scream and try to get away. He also had neon green poop that was very liquidy. I started to notice he wasnt doing well on the 3rd day. I have been feeding him ever since and he isn’t much bigger! I am feeding him about 3 times a day and he is eating very well but I just noticed he has started to have creamy white colored poop. I am feeding him a mix of goats milk and powdered goats milk. He is 12 days old today and still hasn’t opened his eyes. What would I do and am I doing something wrong? Do you think he has a chance of survival??

Have you previous experience with babies?
This is a brand new account I think I remember your other threads where you were trying to bottle-feed babies because you worried that their mother can kill them.
If you have mother you don't need to feed them goat's milk, you can feed them by holding mother and bringing babies to her nipples. Why separate from mother and bring with you out of town? It's not a toy, there's mother and if there's one another baby with her it's also not good separating leaving just one baby there and other baby have in your pocket. You should let their mother to take care of them, no need to intervene.
As you describe green and white creamy poop it's an emergency and you should get the baby to vets asap. Can you call vet now?

I’m sorry the I have only posted about this bunny and I know it isn’t a toy and I am NOT carrying h around in my pocket! he was very sick and weak. There are 4 other babies in there nest now with there mother too. The mother isn’t tame enough for me to be able to hold her my self. So the only way It can be fed is if I am feeding it. There was a need to intervene because there was actually a problem. I don’t have a vet I can call, he doesn’t have the green poo anymore. But I was thinking the cream colored poo might be from over feeding.

It is best to only keep one thread per topic and not create multiple posts on the same subject. :)
