I was just walking my dog and she chased 2 little baby rabbits (almost ate this one in fact). One was white and the one I could catch was grey. They are for sure domesticated breed rabbits, I didn't just take a wild rabbit. They are quite common around here and have been culled before so I did not want this one to have the same misfortune!
It was pouring rain so the little thing is quite wet, he also has matted fur and poop stuck on his bum. He seems quite content to be picked up and is not skittish.
I have another rabbit, so I am trying to keep this little one quarentined, in case he has anything. What should I feed him? I have never had a baby bunny in my care before.
Hay and pellets should be fine just like you're own bun. I am assuming that if they are out and about they are on solid food. Most buns start on solid food at 4 weeks and suckle off mum also until about 8 weeks.
I got Pepper and Piglet from a backyard free range rescue when they were only tiny and they took to hay immediately as well as pellets and sweet basil.
