I have 4 wild baby bunnies with no mom. I have formula, feeders, and bedding. I really want these babies to survive, but I've never raised bunnies. They're about 1 week old, parasite free, and if anyone has time(to raise them), or knowledge please share.

I was a wildlife rehabilitator for more than 12 years. First-and I'm not trying to be mean, they will probably die. Wild bunnies are by far the hardest wild animal to hand raise. The other response on here is a great idea, but you would have to find a mother rabbit QUICK! The babies need to eat ever 2 hours and only a few drops of formula at each feeding. It is very important not to overfeed them. Keep them warm (not hot). BTW- I am impressed you knew to get formula and didn't do what most people do and feed them wilk. Milk (store bought) can be toxic to almost all animals. If you get them to a point they are able to stand it is best to place them in a bed of clover and spray a portion with water every few hours. I would take a bird cage and place it over the bunnies outside. Baby bnnies can survive better on their own even before their eyes open. If the babies die, just know you tried. Which is more than what most people would do.

Thanks for the advice. I can say, I did my best by researching online for hours, asking a friend that has successfully rehabbed bunnies, spent over $60.00 on heavy cream, acidophilus, and formula(pet shop said puppy formula when I needed kitten so I bought that too),but the bunnies have died. I was still placing them back into the nest every evening which is what the pet store said to do. I went out this morning, and something got to them. I am absolutely heart broken, but it is the circle of life. I'm going back to the pet store tomorrow with everything I learned printed out because they acted knowledgeable, but they're advice was way off!
