    keep 'em warm. keep 'em fed. sell them to responsible adults after a few weeks. is their mom MIA?

    did you call the vet? they might need shots or something.

    aw!

    We tried to raise baby bunnies our dog brought to us but they died.

    Wow I'm a real downer!

    better yet, be a surrogate mom for the bunnies (if your mom lets you). keep them until they're old enough to be on their own. then set them free in a forest preserve or something. just make sure that there are no hawks in the area.

    googled it.

    if they're injured you should probably contact a local vet, who might either take the animals in or direct you to a local wildlife rehab facility- it depends on the expertise and licensing of the doctors (i've worked in hospitals that have done both). definitely check dehydration like that site mentions, by tenting the skin and making sure it springs back... dehydration can set in quickly with fast little bunny metabolisms! you'll know it if they are dehydrated, the skin feels weird overall and it sticks to itself when tented.

    if they're not injured/sick... anything i've ever heard said to leave uninjured bunnies in their nest and check on them later on to make sure the mother is returning to care for them (leave flour/fine dust in front of the nest and look for footprints the next day or so). depending on where you live there are all kinds of legal issues with rehabbing wildlife on your own... mostly out of public health concerns, wild animals have all kinds of fun diseases/critters.

    good luck!

    Ok, so My mom found a site that said to put them back about 10 feet from the nest. But the only possible way to put them back would be 40 feet + from the orginal nest. We went and got some Dry kitten supplement, and an eye dropper, and some liquid baby vitamins.
