For the two that are not eating, have you tried feeding them lizards?
I know everyone is set on having these kings eat rodents, but maybe going back to the drawing board, so to speak, and feeding them what they would eat in the wild might be successful. In Sweden I guess one would have to buy some sort of lizard. Here in the Sierras we are blessed with an abundance of fence lizards and skinks.
I am glad to hear that some of your babies are recovering with lower temperatures and increased humidity. I have been all over the Internet trying to find any data for the exact humidity levels they should have. I guess the best way to find this out would be to go out in the field and measure the humidity in rock crevices currently being inhabited by wild zonata king snakes.
