>>I've been working for years with various combo's of Bodner & Lopez Thayeri and have some beautiful lines going. Last years 2 clutches however were tougher than usual to get started on F/T pinks. To get a meal in them, I scented pinks or tease fed House Gecko's. My concern is that now, this is all they want to eat and continue to stubbornly refuse F/T pinks. I have 25 left from 2016 and can't sell them until they flip. I have worked with Alterna for decades so I'm no stranger to picky hatchlings. Does anyone one have any tips to wean these babies off of their preferred meal of House Gex? ( I have even tried live pinks and they won't touch them-but offer a F/T lizard and they eat with vigor)

Still dealing with Picky feeders.
Try throwing frozen pinks in boiling water for ten mins. Then rinse, serve warm.
You'll be surprised!
Let me know how it works for you.
