We all know that babies are a lot of work but the rewards are plentiful. It's a similar story with baby deer! Angela has a baby deer nursery set up in one of the bedrooms in their cabin. This is the deer nursery. She even has baby gates so that the deer will stay safe. The gates form a natural enclosure and expand as the nursery expands. Baby deer drink a lot of milk, on average about every three hours, and just like human babies, have to have it warm. This means that Angela and Keith are on a three hour feeding schedule, including the nights! Angela says sometimes she forgets to brush her teeth and comb her hair! Does that sound familiar to new moms?! Not to mention the cost of goats' milk (about $300 per week) and the occasional medical costs that injured deer incur.
