When I was feeding fawns yesterday 6/12 I found a worm thing in the grass. It looks like some kind of parasite and I'm not sure if it came from a fawn.


Does anyone have an idea?

Sure does look like some kind of worm or something. Are all your fawns doing well?

All but one.*I am bottle feeding a total of 5 fawns, one of them was pulled from the mom on Sunday at 3 days old. He started with severe diarrhea on Wednesday but is still eating well. I do have a doe fawn that her mother did not care for*at birth.*At 3 weeks old she is still very tiny but is eating well and has good stool.*Is it possible that the mom of the doe fawn had worms and passed it on to the baby?*
