Feed for picky fawn?

I have a fawn that is going on 12 weeks Iím giving her a bottle every 6 hours. I will continue to keep her on the bottle for a while. It would be ideal to get her down to two bottles a day. One in the morning and one at night. She is a picky eater though. I have tried many things, all kinds of berries, certain greens, oats, apples, calf mana, avocados.

Out of everything I have tried the only thing I can get her to eat is berries, Kale, portabella mushrooms, apricots, and grapes. She will take a leaf of collard greens.

Any help on feed other than calf mana would be great.

at 12 weeks she should be almost off the milk. i would start reducing the amount you are feeding each day. continue to offer fresh dirt and a feed mix

If you have a feed mill close to you. They should have a horse sweet feed. I would want cracked corn in the feed instead of whole kernel corn.
