I got them in August 2011, so they were a few months old and the breeder already had them feeding on f/t pinks. I have heard that they will sometimes eat small fish or fish-scented pinks.

Also, if you make a nest out of wood chips from an adult mouse cage that have the rodent scent and put the pinks in that, you might get a feeding response.

I've also heard of newborns not eating until after brumation.

So those would be my thoughts, though I've never produced Rubber Boas and had to raise non-feeding neonates.
