With the good of living here, comes the bad. Momma of the two twin babies was hit by a car on the Parkway in almost the same place as Misty. The twins still have their spots and are crying for their momma. I only hope they survive.

:rip: Momma Deer :candle: I will do what I can for your babies.

Can a wild rescue take these babies in? They are too young to be alone. Poor momma..poor babies

That is so sad. People hit these deer or shoot them and don't even think that there may be babies out there who need their mother.

I hope you can help these little ones. :pray:

A biologist at the MNR has told me that the fawns, who were born in late May, should be OK to eat on their own, no milk replacement need be left out for them.

The problem is for them to get enough fat stores for the winter (didn't mention my deer feeding stations during the snowy periods :o) so if they stick around my area, they should be fine :pray:.

Saw the twins last night, they are looking very good and are starting to loose their spots.

Planted 40 Kale plants for them yesterday, thanks cearaqc for the suggestion.

the ministry here encourages hubs and I to feed them mid jan-late march, mostly hay, cracked corn and apples, things they'd find in the wild but are scarce that time of year, by us feeding the herd of 17 it prevents them from leaving the area and venturing into the city. How are they doing now? have you seen them lately?

I saw them last night, and they are doing quite well on their own.

They were in my garden, but didn't touch the kale :frustrated:, just my lilies and cone flowers after they polished off the new growth on my rose bushes :yell:.

Oh no...well look on the bright side.....they are eating.:laughing:. Sorry L4H -but you are really good people and my sense of humour today is alittle 'off'.

Glad to hear that they are hanging around and doing well. :thumbs up

Try going to the supermarkets and asking for apples and produce that they will be discarding. We've done that here and they are very obliging when they know why you want it. You can at least always get the romaine leaves that they take off the heads they sell.

Good luck and hope to see some pics. :goodvibes:

Well, you share my sense of humour, cause these babies can't do any wrong in my eyes. :o :p

Perhaps putting the apples around the kale???? I really want them to eat the kale, it is so good for them.

if you have a blender, take some raw oatmeal and "powder" it, in the early morning when the Kale is still wet from dew, sprinkle the oatmeal on it, it sends out a sweet smell and most wildlife will go for it then.
