Ya I am not to concerned as they have been moved around alot and I'm trying to let them get settled now. I got some small red cable caps I'm gonna use a feeding dishes. I'm gonna pinch the crix leg off so they can't jump out. I also got some gerber peaches, pears,and banana to try out.

:It has only been two days; give them some time to adjust. Usually young cresteds prefer crix over baby food. It is just as well to, as the protein is far more important for their growing bodies then the fruit is. I feed crix everyday, and supplement with fruit only 2-3 times a week. Also apricots act as a natural laxative, so be careful about over using them. I suggest using mangos, pears, peaches, and guava. You can use jarred baby food or better yet puree your own =). Anyway give your geckos a little more time. If you are really concerned try hand feeding them some fruit with a spoon.
