it could just be them settling in as I have had that with cwds before they are just getting use to new home just keep your eye on them for a while but they probably will start eating once they settle in.Were the cb as I got one that was cf and it took her ages to start eating

thats odd, the first day when i got my baby CWD, he was feeding from my hand pretty hapily, it may take a while longer with more than one though, as their instinct is stronger together?

they're quite fussy eaters. You just have to be patient and leave them to their devices. Don't handle them much at first.

Yeah I have kept them before never really had a problem. I'm going to try setting up another water bowl and see how they react to that. I don't handle them at all at the moment. I'm also thinking of trying to feed them out of the tank in a big box see if that works. What do you think?
