I have a 2nd year female who will eat pretty much every frozen-thawed pinkie or fuzzy I place in the cage. She makes it easy by poking around the feeding tray (a plastic box with pine shavings in it) when she is hungry-seems like every week. I also have a same-age dinky male who has been tough to get to eat, and though he will occasionally feed on f-t pinkies in the cage (or even while in my hand), he is much more likely to refuse food. I finally found a trick that works consistently. I place him in a different container with 2 live pinkies in a little box and he will eat them almost immediately. I'm not sure if he is intimidated by the proximity of the larger female, or just prefers a different location for feeding (maybe he just likes to go "out" to eat!). I feel a lot better knowing I have a method to get him to consistently feed.
