Default Help!! Beardies not eating :(

Got my Beardies on Saturday afternoon, they'd been fed in the morning and I was told not to feed them again until Sunday morning. No problem or so I thought!
The male managed to eat 3 Crickets and the female wouldn't touch them.
I didn't worry too much until I came to do a 2nd feed in the afternoon and neither of them ate. I also tried some chopped up carrot but they weren't interested.
Morning feed today and again neither of them were interested in the Crickets, they just watched them hop about.

Any ideas????

I wouldnt worry to much if you only picked them up Saturday!

They usually take a few days to settle in to there new surroundings.

The female isn't getting any though which is what concerns me.
Going to try a mix of veg when I get in and see if I can tempt her.
Realistically how long should I let her go without eating before I consult a vet?

It's easier to say not to worry than it is to not actually worry

Try them Kale, Romaine, Mustard greens or Collard greens.

One of them is very relaxed and he is fine to handle, the other one is still nervous but after a while she seems to relax, The bloke i got them from used to handle them on a daily basis so that has helped.

winter does screw things up dont it lol, try em with some mealworms and waxworms to temp em, might help them get to know you better if you hand feed waxworms to em, just as treats tho.
