As many of you know, I raise rabbits here at IBR as a food source. I had one doe who decided all she'd do was have babies, she wouldn't feed them. Her first litter died before I found them. The second had only one survivor, this teeny baby. Right now I'm feeding it KMR, kitten milk replacement food, along with a few grains of Culturelle to help with digestion. Because he never got any of moms colostrum it's very important to have some good bacteria working away in his tummy.
So far so good. This isn't the best photo but he's a squiggly thing, I was lucky to get this one. No, he won't be a meal but a pet.
Born in Downers Grove, IL, I moved to Cody in 1981 after living in Boulder, CO for many years. As I enjoyed the outdoors and spent many weeks up in Wyoming going on horsepacking trips with friends, I decided to move here. I started Ironside Bird Rescue in 1987 after finding an orphaned Starling baby that had fallen out of its nest near my house. One thing led to another and after all these years the facility now has many different sized mews and flight barns for the exercise of raptors so they will be strong enough for release. I live in a 130+ year old log cabin with a corgi mix dog, her mother, a purebread corgi, a couple cats and many birds in a free flight aviary attached to the house. I'm now retired from a "real job". Along with rehabbing birds, I spend a lot of hours volunteering at our local Buffalo Bill Historical Center in the graphics department.
