If they still have a big yellow thing on the belly, this is called yolk. Until that is gone you should keep them on wet paper towels, dont want damage the yolk with rocks or sharp objects. Anyway they will not eat until this yolk is gone, this is their food until then. Once gone they eat bugs, small little red worms cut up into wiggly pieces. They need a plate with water they can climb in and out of, not to deep, halfway up the shell or a bit less. You can feed them in this plate as well. They tend to use the bathroom in water so change it often!
