Ok so it has eaten just once and that was only a rat pup.
Back to not eating again now and he insists on staying in the cold end even though the temperatures are spot on?
He's been doing this for weeks now.

Any ideas or suggestions appreciated.

I've not kept four lines but I do keep Russian rats.
Mine eat like mad from March (when they come out of hibernation) until the end of July, then they go off their food for about six weeks. At some point during September thay have a couple of feeds then stop feeding again ready to hibernate. They spend October until March hibernating, then it all starts again.
Could this be what your four line is doing?
