If their weight is good give them a couple of weeks to clear the gut of all food and put them down for the rest of the winter. Mitchelli can go a long time without food. I have a female I caught in 1992 that ate a whiptail and a collared lizard right after capture. She then refused everything for the next two years. She lost very little weight. After the second hibernation I brought her out and put her in a dark box with a live fuzzie which she took. She is now a pig and doing great. I also have a male that refused all for the first year. At the end of his second summer with me he took two roadkill rodents. He hadn't lost any weight so I hibernated him. In the spring he was still sporadic but finally in August he started taking domestic mice with gusto. That yours is eating at all is a good sign. Things should improve in time.
