First off you need to get her her own enclosure - let her settle for a week, then try again.
i was using the tub that i borught them home in, maybe this was too big???

Cant of been too big as she was feeding fine in it before.

I wouldn't worry about her thrashing around, just cover the tub and let her settle for a few days, maybe a week then try feeding her again.

I have one that is a fussy eater too. But this could work. When she's in her hide, put the mouse in the hide with her. (ontop of her).

I tried this and mine just got fed up with it on him so he ate it lol.

Also some are secretive and dont like open spaces. So they prefer to feed in their secure hides.
