Well as long as they look fine, meaning they are active and not losing any weight, and your seeing fecal matter, then they should be okay. They just might be very secretive eaters, some individuals are, try hand feeding them fruit baby food with a spoon. You are right about the baby food, the little ones take such small amounts it's hard to tell sometimes that they ate. You also mentioned you put crix in, are they still there in the morning? If they are, you might want to mix a little bit of chicken baby food in with the fruit, as they need the protein. Anyway, like i said as long as you are seeing fecal matter, then they are eating, in which case they will be fine. Just give them a little more time.
