I purchased a pair of Speckled Kings last year and successfully bred them this Spring. The male is a White-wall and the female was a het. She laid 10 eggs in the first clutch and 8 of them hatched for me. I ended up with 6 whitewalls and 2 hets. The problem is that I have not been able to get them to eat yet. I know they can be finicky, but have tried frozen-thawed, brained pinks, frozen scented with lizards, live pinks, newborn live pinks, feeding in containers, in pillowcases, in large bins with hides etc. and have had no luck.

Does anyone here have experience with these, and are there any useful tricks to getting baby holbrooki to eat?

Many thanks!

Jamison
