that ALWAYS works for me, is leaving thawed pinkies in their enclosure for 2-3 days. Seriously.

They obviously get kinda nasty but on the 2nd or 3rd day the pinkie is gone, the baby has a lump, and from that point on I never have a problem with them eating again. This always works when they're about 3 months old and are just finally ready to start eating. I've gotten about 10 baby Coppers to take their first meals this way over the years and it's the only trick that's ever worked for me. Good luck.
