Congrats!!! Mine usually feed after their first shed, which is typically 5-8 days after birth. I usually wait another 3-5 days after that shed to offer the first prey item. I offer the first 3-5 meals in the enclosure and then switch them to deli-cup containers for feedings.

In your photos you have them in what appears to be a very damp setup. I would move them to something drier. I keep my babies just like I keep my adults (on aspen).

Congrats and best of luck!
Chris
